This was like an earthquake in the politics of Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Chhatisgarh, which came silently and no one even knew about it. In one stroke, more than half a dozen contenders in each state, many senior and with long experience, were left stunned. The central leadership does not want someone very popular, popular, well-known, or loved by the public, who can wink at the Centre. The recent circumstances testify that it was not easy to remove Vasundhara Raje. She also came to Delhi and expressed her claim. He also organized a gathering of elected MLAs at his home.
Raje, the innings is over.
Shri Bhajanlal Sharma is an old, proven worker of the SANGH but a first-time MLA. No one knew him on the public platform. Many seniors will have to work under him. Being a new and first-time CM, he will work well, but has zero experience. This is politics, where no rival should become big, this is the first lesson. It is not acceptable for anyone to challenge. This is a step ahead even from the times of Indira Gandhi. When Mohanlal Sukhadia was removed as CM of Rajasthan during Indira Raj, his successor Barkatullah Khan was on a foreign trip. He was called halfway and was given the post of CM, without any group or lobby of his own. Great surprise! Today is a repeat of that surprise. It is the name of discipline, but a pure political move for the 2024 elections.
The arrival of the new ones should be welcomed, but it also shows gross neglect of the legislative party. From this point of view, choosing a Chief Minister without the consent of the legislative party is also undemocratic. Here too, like the American Constitution, it should be considered that a leader should not be Chief Minster or Prime Minister for more than two terms. Vasundhara Raje has served two terms and Gehlot has served three terms. Give others a chance, maybe the new ones will prove better performers. It is also a furtherance of the Gujarat exercise, where the entire cabinet was with new faces and old guards were shown the door.
However, the BJP leadership failed to assess the fact that the Chief Minister and both Deputy Chief ministers come from Jaipur alone. It sounds unjustified.
