Former Rajasthan chief minister Vasundhara Raje on Monday accused the state government for the spurt in incidents of crime and corruption in the state.

Addressing party workers in Baran district, she said the state government was not serious about law and order in the state and the crime rate has increased in the last two and a half months.

Raje said that the state bagged award for excellency in tourism sector, but tourists would avoid visiting it if the situation continued.

The former chief minister criticised the Gehlot government for banning the Bhamashah scheme meant for women empowerment and development.

"The state government should implement the 'Bhamashah Scheme' for women empowerment and development, which was initially started during my regime but is stopped by the Congress Government," she said.

Taking a pot shot at the Gehlot regime, she said the scheme can be named after Jawahar Lal Nehru, Indira Gandhi, Rajeev Gandhi or Soniya Gandhi.
