Four days left for the Rajasthan elections. The election chariot of Amar Ujala’s ‘Satta Ka Sangram’ has reached Jodhpur, the home town of the Chief Minister. Senior journalists Ajay Asthana, Sangeetha Sharma and Mukesh Dutt Sharma joined us here to discuss politics of the state. During the question-and-answer session with seniors, we tried to know what is going to happen this time in Rajasthan. The magic of ‘Magician’ will be seen once again or the old custom of flipping roti will be seen once again.

How much is the magic of ‘magician’ in Jodhpur before Rajasthan?
Senior journalist Sangeeta Sharma, involved in the election discussion, said in response to this question that the magic of Gehlot ji is still there in his seat, but if we look at the overall, this time the atmosphere is not looking like before. This time the voter is silent. Every time before the election, the voters make it clear who is going to have the upper hand. This time the candidates are also not confident of their victory.
After the distribution of tickets, what will be the role of the rebels of both parties?
Sangeetha Sharma said that the damage control exercise which was done every time after ticket distribution in both the BJP or Congress parties, was not seen this time. As of today, both the parties are standing on 80 seats. I believe that about half of these rebels can spoil the equation. It is certain that gardeners in both parties are going to increase the difficulties. Apart from this till now BJP is completely carrying Kamal forward. Those who were big leaders of the party were also kept on the sidelines until now. Now big faces like Vasundhara Raje have been seen in Sankalp Patra. This is also the case with Congress. This time the face of the Congress means गहलोट का ही जा है है जा है.
Janata this time न सत्ता न opposition, किसी को लेक्र नहीन है है, why?
Commenting on the question, senior journalist Ajay Asthana said that the public is in the market this time. This is because the people have this time the government’s schemes and seven guarantees, but on the other hand, Modi ji’s own guarantee. Just now Modi ji came home. Apart from this अवर जहान भी ब्जीप की साभा है है है है है है है है है है है है है है है है है है है है है है है है है है है है है है है है Votes have not been appealed in the name of a single candidate anywhere. It is clear that BJP is running on Modi and Kamal. On the other hand, the entire focus of the Congress is on the people and their schemes. Overall, the election of Rajasthan is between Modi and the people.
Why BJP could not find any leader in front of Jodhpur city?
Responding, Ajay Asthana said that it was not an easy decision for BJP to put anyone in front of the government. Gehlot ji has won five times from here and is now ready to fight for the sixth time. This was a big question for the BJP as to whom it should be presented in such a way. The BJP brainstormed several names to house Gehlot, including Gajendra Singh Shekhawat and Rajendra Gehlot, a Rajya Sabha MP. After this, BJP finally gave ticket to Mahendra Singh Rathod, who is a retired professor from JNU.
In the opinion of people, the most effective issue of Rajasthan is employment, why?
Senior journalist Mukesh Sharma, throwing light on this question, said that while looking into the issue of employment, the government has seriously included this issue in the seven guarantees it has given this time. Apart from this, the work he has done while paying attention to health has benefited the people and the government will also benefit from this benefit.
