Congress claims big victory
Pratap Singh Khachariyawas confidently asserted that the Congress has demonstrated its commitment through tangible achievements, offering seven guarantees to the people.

Congress facing internal upheaval: Sudhanshu Trivedi
Sudhanshu Trivedi countered by claiming that the Congress is undergoing internal turmoil, likening it to a ship with two captains like Sachin Pilot. He used the metaphor of a moving millstone to describe the party’s situation, emphasizing the lack of coherence in their approach. Trivedi suggested that the Congress, once a source of pride, is now facing a challenging reality in Rajasthan.
Challenges in the state
Trivedi accused the Congress government of maintaining silence on these matters, raising concerns about the deteriorating law and order situation.
Congress’s stand on international issues
Trivedi criticised the Congress’s stance on international issues, particularly mentioning their support for the Palestinian cause. He accused the party of attempting to create a communal atmosphere by taking sides in international conflicts, warning that it might lead to radicalisation.
Economic challenges in Rajasthan
The BJP spokesperson also highlighted economic concerns, noting that Rajasthan tops the list in terms of inflation rates. Trivedi argued that the state’s youth and farmers are facing significant challenges, asserting that the Congress-led government has failed to address these issues effectively.
