Attacking the Narendra Modi government, Gehlot said the democracy of the country is in danger and encouraged youths to support the Congress both in the assembly and the Lok Sabha elections and save democracy.

“Democracy of the country is in danger today and I call upon the youths of the country to come forward and bring back the Congress to power for the betterment of the country and democracy”, Gehlot said.

Gehlot said, “The country is passing through a difficult time today. The top-level institutions of the country like the Election Commission, NITI Ayog, CBI, the judiciary are under threat today and being weakened.” He further said that he will be holding extensive consultations with party workers and seek their opinion on the selection of various candidates for the upcoming polls.

Gehlot also met workers from the three constituencies of Jodhpur city – Soorsagar, Sardarpura and City – and is scheduled to meet those of seven 7 rural constituencies – Osian, Phalodi, Lohawat, Shergarh, Bhopalgarh, Luni and Bilara – on Wednesday.

He said the selection of the candidates is a teamwork and an absolute transparency was being maintained in finalising their names. Terming the ongoing poll campaign by BJP president Amit Shah and Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje, as “political tantrums”, Gehlot said the people have already decided to choose Congress this time.

“People have decided whom they have to choose this time. Even the rallies and other tantrums of Amit Shah and Vasundhara Raje would not work,” he said, asserting that the Congress would win with a huge margin this time.
