Congress’ magician Ashok Gehlot is known for his magical words as well. But this time his magic has gone wrong on the Rashtriya Loktantrik Party (RLP) stalwart Hanuman Beniwal. Former independent Jaat leader Beniwal recently extended his support to Bharatiya Janta Party in Rajasthan along with his newly formed RLP party. Beniwal is a strong supporter of PM Narendra Modi and his motto is to contribute in his victory in Lok Sabha elections.
Citing this, chief minister Ashok Gehlot took a dig at Beniwal at a rally organized on the nomination of Nagaur Lok Sabha candidate Jyoti Mirdha. Gehlot said, ‘If Beniwal joined Congress, he could have given been a minister in my cabinet.’
Gehlot’s statement has failed to cast any spell on Beniwal. Conversely, Beniwal chose Twitter to react on the comment wrote-
आज अशोक जी ने मुझे समझोते करने की अपनी नसियत को सार्वजनिक रूप से स्वीकारा ।मेरी समझौता न करने की प्रकृति को भी वर्णित किया, पर ये बताने में नाकाम रहे की नागौर की जनता पर पर्यटक रूपी प्रत्याशी ज्योति मिर्धा किस समझौते के तहत थोपी https://t.co/lJQbrSFo1Z

‘Ashok Ji accepted his nature of negotiation and my nature of no negotiation at any cost. But, he failed to tell that why they imposed Jyoti Mirdha on the people of Nagaur, who herself is a tourist to the constituency.’
लाखों लोगों की उपस्तिथी में जिस पार्टी का उदय हुआ हो, जिसपार्टी की ज़रूरत सत्ता के समझौतों से उत्पन्न हुए हालातों से हुई हो वो बंद कमरों में सत्ता के बँटवारे नहीं करती बल्कि राष्ट्र की मज़बूती के लिए एक प्रतिबद्ध नेतृत्व @narendramodi को अपना विश्वास सौंपने में यक़ीन रखती हैं https://t.co/tPgCQ3EDmV

RLP leader tweeted that the millions of people witness the party’s rise. The rise of the party is a reply to the negotiable politics, doesn’t talk about divisional democracy, and counts on the powerful leadership of Narendra Modi to make the nation strongest.’

While announcing of alliance earlier this month, Beniwal had also said, “The country’s development is our utmost priority. We will stand together to ensure Narendra Modi becomes the Prime Minister again. Congress has ruined our nation. Now is the time to rectify things.”
It is worth noticing that RLP leader Hanuman Beniwal and Gurjar agitation leader Kirori Bainsla joined Bharatiya Janta party earlier this month and offered support to prime minister Narendra Modi.
Rajasthan will go on Lok Sabha polls in two phases. April 29 will be the first poll phase in Rajasthan and later on May 6 remaining state will hold the elections this year.
