Former Rajasthan chief minister Vasundhara Raje on Thursday denied any differences with the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) and said she had cordial ties with the Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP’s) ideological parent body.
She also said she had no plans to leave Rajasthan.
“I have had very deep and cordial ties with RSS since the time of (her mother) Vijayraje Scindia,” she told reporters
Asked when she would submit her resignation from the post of leader of opposition and take on a responsibility at the centre, she said: “I don’t have plans to leave Rajasthan. I will always love, live and care for the people of Rajasthan.”
Raje was addressing journalists after the one-day assembly session called to pass some important bills, which was boycotted by the BJP.
The BJP boycotted the session since speaker Deepender Shekhawat suspended three of its MLAs during the assembly session in July.
While the BJP MLAs sat outside the assembly in protest, the Congress government passed five bills in the house. These included the Rajasthan Municipality Bill 2009, Agriculture Produce Markets Bill, Court Fees and Suits Valuation Bill , Panchayati Raj Bill and Appropriation Bill.
