Press Trust of India  |  Jodhpur 

Senior accused the ruling government of treating the blue city "step-motherly", on the last day of electioneering in the poll-bound state.

Striking a retaliatory note two days ahead of the state assembly polls, Gehlot appealed to people to uproot the BJP government as it "neglected the city".

In his public address at the historic landmark of the city, Ghantaghar, Gehlot said "Jodhpur has been subjected to a step-motherly treatment all these five years and this is the time that the people brace for retaliation of this treatment and bring the to power."

He held public meetings at his constituency-Sardarpura. He also halted at the houses of some party loyalists and struck a dialogue with the people assembled there.

Beginning his public address from Chokha, on outskirts of the city, Gehlot said that damage has already been done and even if or comes for a damage control, people have already decided the party for which they are going to vote this time.

Electioneering in the state ended at 5 pm Wednesday. Polling will take place from 8 am to 5 pm on December 7 in 199 constituencies.
