19 New Districts in Rajasthan: In a significant development ahead of the elections, Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot has announced the creation of 19 new districts and three divisions.
This move is seen as a strategic play by the Congress party to rejuvenate the Gehlot government, which has been facing internal disputes and anti-incumbency sentiments.
The creation of these new districts has been a longstanding demand in the state, and could potentially help Gehlot and his party win more votes.
However, it's worth noting that the Hadoti area has not been included in the new districts.
Anupgarh, which falls under the Sri Ganganagar Assembly, has recently been declared a separate district.
What makes this news more captivating is the story of MLA Madan Prajapat, who had pledged to abstain from wearing shoes until the formation of this district.
It is delightful to know that his demand has now been met with the creation of the Anupgarh district.
Former CM Vasundhara Raje has criticized the recent decision of the Congress government, stating that it is motivated by personal political interests.
According to her, this decision has put the entire economic system of Rajasthan at risk, and the people of the state will have to bear the consequences in the coming years.
Raje also pointed out that the creation of new districts has overlooked several important facts, and instead of facilitating the people, it will only lead to administrative complications.
Furthermore, Sandeep Yadav, the MLA from Tijara who had joined Congress from BSP, has stepped down from his position as the Chairman of Bhiwadi Development Board.
His decision came after expressing displeasure over the choice to establish Khairthal as a district instead of Bhiwadi.
The Chief Minister of Rajasthan, Ashok Gehlot, has announced the formation of new districts in the state, bringing the total number of districts to 50, along with 10 divisions.
The government plans to invest 2 thousand crores to develop these new districts.
This move by the Congress government is being viewed as a significant step before the upcoming Rajasthan elections, which may lead to changes in the electoral equation in various assembly constituencies.
The 19 new districts announced by CM Gehlot in the Assembly include Anupgarh, Balotra, Beawar, Deeg, Dudu, Jaipur North, Jaipur South, Jodhpur East, Jodhpur West, Gangapur City, Kekri, Kotputli, Behror, Khairthal, Neem Ka Thana, Sanchore, Phalodi, Salumbar, and Shahpura.
