On Tuesday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed an election rally in Karauli, Rajasthan. During this, he was seen attacking the Congress government of Rajasthan. Without taking his name, he also targeted CM Ashok Gehlot.
“The Chief Minister here says that women in Rajasthan lie and file false cases. One of his staunch courtiers makes statements defaming every man here. You tell me, can any society call a rapist a man? But the Chief Minister’s courtiers publicly say that this is the land of men, it is natural for rape to happen,” said PM Modi.
“Today, I assure Rajasthan that the BJP government will take the strictest action against those who commit atrocities against women,” added PM Modi.
मैं आज राजस्थान को ये भरोसा देता हूं कि भाजपा सरकार महिलाओं के साथ अत्याचार करने वालों पर सख्त से सख्त कार्रवाई करेगी।

Further attacking the Gandhi family, PM Modi said: “There are many brave women in this land of heroes. We have inspirations from Bhakta Prahlad and Rana Sanga. But for Congress, only one family is everything. Congress has given streets, intersections, schools, hospitals, government schemes, everything in the name of one family only.”
Further attacking the Congress government, PM modi mentioned the incidence of violence in the state.
“Ever since the Congress government was formed here, there have been riots in Rajasthan during every festival. In a way, every year there has been some big riot in Rajasthan. There was a big riot in Tonk in October 2019, in Dungarpur in 2020, big riots in Jhalawar and Baran in 2021, again in 2022 Congress threw Jodhpur and Karauli into the fire of riots,” said PM Modi.
“Can you forget what happened in Karauli during the New Year procession last year? Many people were left bleeding due to stone pelting here, many whose businesses were ruined,” added PM Modi.
“These attacks do not stop because the riot accused hold feasts at the Chief Minister’s residence. Can the Congress which welcomes criminals protect you?,” asked PM.
“Rajasthan is the land of those who would die for the dignity of women. But when there is no fear of law, our mothers, sisters and daughters suffer the most. This has happened in every corner of Rajasthan,” said PM Modi.
Well, the assembly elections in Rajasthan are scheduled to take place on November 25, in a single phase, followed by the counting of votes and declaration of results on December 3.
