New Delhi, Feb 7: Bharatiya Janata Party’s Kota district OBC wing Chief Ashok Choudhary has written to party president Amit Shah, demanding a replacement for Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje and state party head Ashok Parnami, ahead of the upcoming state Assembly elections.
In the recently held Rajasthan By Polls, the BJP witnessed defeat by losing two Lok Sabha seats and one Assembly seat.
Choudhary wrote to Shah in his party letterhead, stating, “The people of the state are not happy with Chief Minister Vasundhra Raje’s style of functioning. The party workers are losing confidence due to her working style”, News 18 reported.
Terming Parnami as a “slave of Raje”, Choudhary said he was continuously causing damage to the organisation.
The ground-level party workers like him were well that the ByElection results would not go in the favour of the saffron party, Choudhary further asserted.
Claiming that the Rajasthan Chief Minister had fallen into the bureaucracy “trap” (IAS, IPS, RAS, RPS), BJP’s Kota OBC wing head said Raje was leading the party on to a path that headed nowhere but towards defeat.
There was anger against the Raje government among all sections of the society, including the farmers, Choudhary stated, adding that the general opinion among the party workers was that the state leadership should immediately be changed to infuse energy into the organisation ahead of upcoming Assembly elections.
When contacted, he Choudhary admitted that he had written a letter to the BJP president.
However, maintaining that he had highlighted the plight of the workers in his letter to the party’s national head, he said, “Each and every word in the letter is that of the party workers.”
