Chief minister Vasundhara Raje said on Monday that the people have to make a choice in assembly polls on back of the record of a party on development.

“On one hand, there is a party that has ruled for more than 40 years but not fulfilled its promises, and on the other hand there is a party that has done a lot of development work that is visible on the ground in the past four years,” she said, addressing a rally in Dugarpur on the third day of Gaurav Yatra.

Raje announced projects worth Rs 145 crore in Dungarpur.

At Himmat Nagar in Garhi, there was a moment of embarrassment for the BJP when the power went off just ahead of the chief minister’s arrival and the address of BJP leader Dhansingh Rawat was interrupted.

At Saagwara, Raje said, “I got to know about Rajasthan during my first yatra and decided what has to be done in the second yatra, and in this yatra I am telling the public what I have done for Rajasthan.”

She was delayed by nearly four hours. She was supposed to reach at 2 pm but was delayed due to welcome at many places.

On Tuesday, the rath yatra will pass through various constituencies of Banswara district and a rally will be held at Banswara at 5.30 pm.

The first leg of the Gaurav Yatra, which was launched on Saturday, will be passing through the Udaipur division.

The chief minister will be touring 165 of 200 assembly constituencies covering a stretch of more than 6,000 km.

The yatra is slated to conclude in Pushkar, Ajmer with Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s rally.

After the conclusion of the yatra, major programmes will be organised in the remaining 35 assembly constituencies before the elections to ensure that the message of “good governance” reaches the people.
