Union Sports and Youth Affairs Minister, Anurag Thakur addressed media personnel at Udaipur on 15 September after concluding with his participation in the BJP Parivartan Yatra that is taking place across Rajasthan.
Thakur, in his address to the media accused the Congress, saying that the party members were ashamed of Sanatan Dharma and want to wipe out Hindus as well as the Constitution written by Dr. Ambedkar. Thakur also presented a list of incidences of crime against women especially rape and murder of the minor girls across the state. He accused the Gehlot government, saying that it is during the regime of Ashok Gehlot that thse incidences are happening more often and said that Rajasthan is a male dominated state. He added that the CM should take responsibility for lack of action by the Police and should resign from his position.
By calling Rajasthan government as 'Grahloot Sarkar', Thakur said that it is the only state where during Congress rule more than 2 lakh cases of crime against women and 35 thousand cases of rape where being registered so far and this has darkened the image of Rajasthan and tarnished its reputation built over many decades. He added that while girls were being raped across the state, Gehlot was busy in holding on to his position. If the police force was monitored and directed properly, many of the victims could have been protected, Thakur added.
Speaking on the rising cost of Petrol and Diesel, Thakur said that the cost of Petrol and Deisel is the highest in Rajasthan due to the high VAT rates imposed by the State Government. This was one reason he added that consumers near the borders, chose to get their fuel from bordering states like Haryana and Gujarat, instead of from those in the leading to the closure of around 300 petrol pumps in the state.
Thakur said that if the people gave a chance to BJP in Rajasthan, then it will assure the safety of women in the state and set a good example of governance, as set in Uttar Pradesh by the Yogi Government.of which has been set up by at Uttar Pradesh by Yogi government by dealing with the culprits strictly.
Holding the One Nation One Election Model an ideal Model he said that it will be beneficial and time saving model for all as instead of remaining busy in election for whole year it will be good that elections will be organized one in a year and the rest of the time can be utilize for more productive and developmental works and it will also add to the growth of the country.
By targeting Rahul Gandhi Thakur said that he can come to Banswara to address a public meeting but cannot go to the rape victim's house at Bhilwara where, minor girl was brutally raped and murdered ,as it is their party ruling in the state.
Thakur claimed that now the people of Rajasthan have made up their mind to remove this anti- women, anti-Dalits, anti-Tribal government from the state and it can be clearly seen during the Sankalp Yatra where people are showing their participation enthusiastically.
