Chief minister Vasundhara Raje began the third leg of her Rajasthan Gaurav Yatra on Thursday and said she would not be cowed down by the Congress’s attempts to disrupt it.

After beginning the yatra from Mukam, a famous pilgrimage of Bishnoi community in Nokha tehsil of Bikaner, Raje met seers to seek their blessings ahead of the upcoming assembly elections.

Addressing a public meeting in Mukam, Raje said: “I am not going anywhere. I am here and will return.” Lashing out at the Congress, the CM said: “They are running pillar to post to disrupt the Gaurav Yatra and break my direct connect with the people. I will use helicopter, travel by bus or walk but this Yatra will continue and I will keep interacting with my family.”

Raje said her government kept development and politics apart and focused on development for all without any discrimination. She said despite being the constituency of leader of opposition Rameshwar Dudi, her government fulfilled every possible demand of Nokha.

At a public meeting in RD 860 in Kolayat assembly seat area, Raje said despite the previous regime leaving a huge financial burden, her government managed to carry out development work.

“Congress did no work in 50 years. They only did politics in the name of development,” Raje said adding her government carried out development works based on the needs of the people.

“On one hand, there is a party that ruled for more than 50 years without fulfilling any of its promises. On the other hand, there is a party that has done a lot of work beyond the imagination of Congress and that is visible on the ground,” Raje said in Loonkansar.

Raje also participated in a roadshow organised by the party in Bikaner city.
