Rajasthan CM Vasundhara Raje to begin 58-days yatra
Eye on polls, Raje to set off tomorrow on 58-day Rajasthan yatra
BJP president Amit Shah will flag off the yatra’s `Vijay Rath’ - a customized bus - at Kankroli village in Rajsamand district.
The 'Rajasthan Gaurav Yatra' trip will end in the temple town of Pushkar on September 30.
A special prayer of the`rath’, decked with garlands, was performed at the chief minister's residence here this evening before it left Jaipur for Rajsamand.
Raje will offer prayers at the Charbhuja temple in Rajsamand tomorrow morning and travel 25 km to Kankroli on a helicopter for a public meeting there, before beginning the yatra.
The opposition Congress has alleged that taxpayers' money is being spent on the yatra.
During the yatra, Raje will address 135 public meetings and events to welcome her will take place at 500 places.
The Bharatiya Janata Party has already named Raje as its chief ministerial candidate in the coming assembly elections and claimed it will win over 180 of the 200 seats.
He said there is excitement among the people to welcome the yatra.
“The list of work done by the BJP government is endless, compared to the previous Congress government,” he said.
“Most of the constituencies kept out of the Gaurav Yatra are in Jaipur division,” Kataria said.
The yatra will cover the state's all seven divisions of Udaipur, Bharatpur, Jodhpur, Bikaner, Kota, Jaipur and Ajmer.
