Ahead of the Bharat Jodo Yatra of the Congress entering Rajasthan on December 3, the state BJP on Sunday announced to have ‘Jan Aakrosh Rath Yatra’ against the state government led by Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot in all 200 assembly constituencies from December 1.

BJP National President J P Nadda would flag off the Yatra comprising 51-Raths in Jaipur on December 1 in a massive rally and would simultaneously be carried out in all district headquarters covering 200 assembly constituencies, the state party unit president Satish Poonia told a press conference here.

He said that Jan Aakrosh Rath Yatra would expose failures of the Gehlot government and its fake promises made to farmers and youths for crop loan waive and jobs respectively, deteriorating law and order situation, exploitation of SCs, STs and OBCs in the state. Poonia was accompanied by party in-charge and MP Arun Singh, Leader of Opposition G C Kataria, and three LS MPs.

He said that through this Yatra, the BJP has planned to reach out to two crore people, adding that in each assembly constituency at least 5000 people would participate in Rath Yatra to be concluded on December 14.

On a question whether the Yatra is organised in reply to the Congress leader Rahul Gandhi’s Bharat Jodo Yatra, which is entering Rajasthan on December 3 and will move for the next 15 days in the eastern state, Poonia replied in negative.

“The party had planned it long back to coincide with the four years’ of Gehlot government on December 18 next month, and working on the next year’s assembly poll in the state,” he said.

Will the BJP project any face as the chief ministerial candidate in the 2023 assembly polls, the state unit president said: “Face is not the party’s agenda. The party high command will decide whom to project.”

In today’s press conference, the party released a charge-sheet against the Gehlot government, a website on Jan Aakrosh Rath Yatra, a toll free number for individual’s registration, and a poster with the theme song.
