Leader of Opposition Rameshwar Dudi on Friday appealed to chief minister Vasundhara Raje to follow ‘Raj Dharma’ for meeting the people’s expectation from her government.

“For the last two years, the state is witnessing anarchy... Be it farmer, poor, youth or common man. Everyone is disappointed. Promises made by the BJP remains unfulfilled. People are feeling cheated. What has been mentioned in the governor address is untrue,” the Congress MLA said in the Assembly.

Dudi reminded Raje of BJP stalwart Bhairon Singh Shekhawat, saying the late chief minister had stated that a chief minister should follow ‘Raj Dharma’. “If Raje had adopted the principle, the situation would not have been worse. For the benefit of the state, she should had taken forward the developmental schemes of the previous government. But she stalled the (Barmer) refinery project which attracted the largest investment of Rs 40,000 crore in Rajasthan’s history.”

Raising questions on the Resurgent Rajasthan summit, Dudi sought to know results of the government’s efforts. “Big industrialists participated but they received the message that the PM and the CM don’t share cordial relations as he did not turn up.”

“Farmer affected by hail storm and excessive rains are still awaiting compensation. Government is hearing BJP workers at party offices but what about the people?” The ruling party promised 15 lakh jobs in state but instead thousands of Vidhyarthi Mitr went jobless due to closure of 17,000 schools, Dudi said.

He alleged that the government aims to privatise power projects including Kali Sindh and Kota thermal plants. “We suspect the state wants to snatch farmers land and give to corporates. Children are dying of malnutrition. Journalism, Ambedkar and Bikaner technical universities are closed while corruption is at its peak,” Dudi said.
