"BJP is nowhere in Rajasthan...they are fighting via ED": CM Ashok Gehlot

Bhilwara (Rajasthan) [India] : Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot on Saturday took a swipe at the BJP and alleged that the saffron party was fighting the elections via the Directorate of Enforcement (ED).

CM Ashok Gehlot said, “BJP is nowhere in Rajasthan. It is Congress vs ED in Rajasthan. ED is after us, and summoned my son to Delhi. No case, no complaint, no FIR…Those making false complaints are from the BJP…ED and CBI are being used to topple governments; they (the BJP) are fighting via ED…”

CM Gehlot further said that the BJP was after the state Congress president while the ED should take action against fugitives like Vijay Mallya, Nirav Modi and Mehul Choksi.

“If the government is toppled through the ED then there would be no democracy. If you (BJP) have courage, then fight democratically through the elections. Debate with us on the work we have done in the last 5 years. Debate with us on the guarantees we have given. This is democracy,” he said.

CM Gehlot’s son, Vaibhav Gehlot, recently appeared before the ED for questioning in a case under the Foreign Exchange Management Act, 1999 (FEMA).

Meanwhile, the Congress has declared its sixth list of 22 candidates for the Rajasthan Assembly elections. The names for the remaining 22 seats are likely to be announced soon. The last date for filing nominations is November 6.

Rajasthan is among five states that will go to the polls next month. Polling in the state will be held on November 25 and votes will be counted on December 3.
