Rajasthan Pradesh Congress Committee president Sachin Pilot today sought Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje's reply on issues such as "rising crime, unemployment and corruption" in the state before she sets out for Rajasthan Gaurav Yatra.

He also suggested Raje to take out a 'Jawabdehi yatra' (yatra for accountability) instead of the statewide Rajasthan Gaurav Yatra slated for August 4 from Charbhujanath temple in Rajsamand district.

"The BJP had made several promises on issues such as crime, unemployment, inflation, and corruption before the elections and on the basis of those promises, the party took the reins but unfortunately the government has failed on all the fronts," Pilot said.

He criticised the chief minister for her statement in which she blamed frustration among people over unemployment for lynching incidents.

Raje, in an interview with a news channel on July 30, said the incidents of lynching were not limited to Rajasthan alone and blamed the problem on frustration among people over lack of jobs.

Pilot said such statements showed the policy of the government to "increase anarchism".

"The chief minister should clarify as to why crimes against women are on peak in the state. Crimes of all nature are uncontrolled in the state," Pilot said.

He said that the government should also speak about the irregularities in cow shelters.

"The government is patronising corruption while inflation has increased. Nearly 350 temples were also demolished in the state capital. The chief minister kept herself away from accountability and transparency but now she will have to give reply," he said.
