Govt’s 1st anniversary to be peoples’ affair: Raghu Sharma

Ajmer: “It will be the people who would celebrate the first anniversary of the popular Gehlot government that they have elected. The state government has no role in the celebrations,” said health minister Raghu Sharma. According to him, people are happy because the Congress government has taken many favourable decisions for them.

Sharma along with AICC secretary Vivek Bansal was in Ajmer on Monday to take stock of preparations for the party’s Bharat Bachao rally in Delhi on December 14.

Both leaders launched a scathing attack on Modi government and accused it of unleashing investigating agencies to suppress its critics. During a meeting of party workers in Ajmer to discuss arrangements for December 14 rally, the two leaders said that not just noted industrialist Rahul Bajaj but everyone remembers former PM Man Mohan Singh’s tenure.

“Bajaj criticised Modi government’s economic policies. People are afraid to speak against economic mismanagement of this government. They fondly remember former prime minister Man Mohan Singh for his economic policies,” Bansal said.

Sharma who is now man to go for Congress for every major responsibility whether taking care of party MLAs during critical time of government formation in Maharashtra or looking after arrangements for the rally now, also lambasted Modi government for creating a situation of economic emergency.

He added 5000 people from Ajmer will go to Delhi to participate in the rally.
