In the state of Rajasthan, every legislative assembly election leads to a change in government. This historical trend has been consistent over the years. However, the Congress party claims that it will reverse this trend this time around. The primary reason for this is the party’s efforts to reach every section of the state without any discrimination. Every family in the state is said to have benefited from the government’s initiatives across various segments. This inclusive approach could potentially reshape the state’s political history and pave the way for the Ashok Gehlot-led government to regain power.
The question remains: Can the Congress make a comeback in Rajasthan’s political arena? When asked about this by Amar Ujala, Rajasthan’s Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot stated that it is the people’s prerogative to decide who should hold power and who should be in the opposition. His focus remains on ensuring the benefits of welfare schemes reach every stratum of the state’s population. The goal is to prevent any section of society from feeling marginalized and to provide equal opportunities for progress.
Under the “Chiranjeevi Health Scheme,” families in Rajasthan are thronging to enrollment camps to take advantage of free medical treatments up to ₹25 lakh. Especially for economically weaker rural families, this initiative aims to alleviate the burden of rising medical costs. The scheme provides a safety net, offering free treatment for serious illnesses such as cancer and heart diseases. This initiative is expected to enhance the well-being of the populace by reducing the financial stress associated with healthcare expenses.
Chief Minister Gehlot highlighted that while the Central Government’s schemes are often limited to specific categories, his government’s approach extends the benefits of these programs to all sections. He emphasized that families, irrespective of their financial status, often feel burdened when it comes to healthcare expenses. The Chiranjeevi Health Scheme aims to alleviate this burden and ensure that no family faces financial distress due to medical treatment costs.
The “Pro-Incumbency Factor” has become the Congress party’s claim in Rajasthan’s political landscape. The party believes that the government’s schemes have made an impact on every family in the state. This perception is expected to work in favor of the Congress, creating a wave of sympathy among the people.
It is anticipated that the upcoming election will largely revolve around the personalities of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot. The BJP supporters believe that the perception battle might tilt in Modi’s favor, but the Congress argues that the state’s citizens will vote based on who can govern effectively. As the election approaches, the focus remains on the possible shift in the political dynamics of Rajasthan.
