The developments in Punjab Congress have raised the ears of big leaders in Rajasthan. Despite the difference in the political situation of both the states, the political flurry of changes in the phase has started in Rajasthan too. The fear of the anti-incumbency wave has started haunting the Congress government. To deal with the anti-incumbency wave, Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot has prepared a plan to emerge from it. Gehlot is now preparing to enter the field as soon as he recovers completely, a program is being prepared for this.
It is being told that CM Gehlot can start his tours from western Rajasthan. Apart from the home district of Jodhpur, programs are being considered to make a large-scale tour of CM in Bikaner, Nagaur, Jalore, Sirohi districts. Gehlot has not made any political tour except by-elections for the last 18 months.
Brainstorming is going on to make a program for Gehlot's state tour. In December, three years of the government are being completed, in such a situation, the idea of inaugurating the foundation stone laying ceremony is also going on for three years. Gehlot's strategists are preparing for large-scale tours on the completion of three years of the government.
The plan of Gehlot's tours will depend on Corona. Corona has been under control in Rajasthan for a long time. Vaccination is also going on at a good pace. By December, most of the population will be safe, if the third wave of corona does not come, then there will be no problem in making a political tour. Keeping this in mind, preparations are going on for Gehlot's political tours. In these tours of Gehlot, Congress state president Govind Singh Dotasara and key ministers are also being considered.
Gehlot has not gone to the field since February 2020 except for fencing and by-elections. During the entire Corona period, Gehlot worked by making the CM residence an office. It was also discussed in political circles. Ashok Gehlot has been doing virtual meetings and virtual inaugurations for more than a year and a half. He did not even visit Jodhpur except to meet the victims of the Balesar tragedy in August last year. In many virtual programs, Ashok Gehlot has been promising the workers of Jodhpur to come to different places including Jodhpur as soon as the corona subsides.
Gave feedback to CM, VC and virtual programs do not send a political message. For the last 18 months during the Corona period, Gehlot has inaugurated meetings and foundation-layings only through video conferencing. Gehlot has been advised by strategists close to him that the core voter of the Congress is in villages and small towns, he wants a direct connection. Video conferencing does not create a political atmosphere and the core voter of Congress does not connect. Because of this, a large square has been cut and there is no option but to go to the field to add it.
According to political experts, the track record of the political mood of Rajasthan shows that after two years the anti-incumbency wave starts growing here. As the term of the government moves towards the fourth year, the anti-incumbency wave begins to intensify. CM Ashok Gehlot has feedback on the anti-incumbency wave.
