Congress Schemes for Rajasthan Election 2013

Senior Congress leader CP Joshi said that voting turnout has increased due to several reasons in this election. According to him, the efforts of Election Commission cannot be ignored as it did a lot of campaigning which increased the voter turnout. “The voter slips delivered to individuals at their residences. Besides it’s also the Congress schemes targeting individual beneficiaries which played a role. Parties like NPP, BSP and independents made efforts to increase their respective vote share,” Joshi said, adding that over 20,000 votes increased in most of the constituencies. “Electoral rolls were updated continuously. All these factors resulted in higher turnout of voters,” said Joshi. When asked whether it (high voter turnout) was due to Modi effect, Joshi said, “Congress Pension Scheme has benefited around 49 lakh people across the state. Voting slips were also sent to them. So this means that they must have voted in favour of Congress.”

Chief minister Ashok Gehlot said on Tuesday that Congress party would win Assembly elections by a landslide due to its work done in the past five years. Denying any impact of Gujarat chief minister Narendra Modi, Gehlot said that BJP and their state chief Vasundhara Raje have no vision which was evident from the fact that they had not fixed any agenda in this election. In the entire campaign, they (BJP leaders) just tried to spread confusion by making baseless allegations, he alleged. “Elections have just ended and the BJP is now busy in forming its council of ministers. They are trying to build a confusing atmosphere in the state. They are masters in creating atmosphere in their favour everywhere, be it media or in political surveys. But reality will emerge only on December 8,” said Gehlot. He added, “They are doing it so that parties like BSP, NPP and independents give them support thinking that BJP is coming to power.”
