Former Rajasthan Minister Rajendra Gudha stirred up controversy on Tuesday by demanding a narco test on all ministers in the state. This call comes just a day after he made a dramatic appearance in the assembly, waving a ‘red diary’ that he claimed contained evidence of financial irregularities involving Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot and other officials.
In a recent interview with PTI, Gudha not only leveled serious allegations against the state’s top leadership but also expressed his support for senior Congress leader Sachin Pilot in the ongoing tussle between Pilot and Chief Minister Gehlot.
Gudha’s accusations have sent shockwaves through the political landscape in Rajasthan. He accused Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot of being involved in financial irregularities, which he claimed were documented in the mysterious ‘red diary.’ The contents of this diary have not been disclosed to the public yet, but Gudha’s assertions have added fuel to the already contentious political atmosphere in the state.
Furthermore, the former minister lambasted Gehlot for allegedly using derogatory language to describe Sachin Pilot. Gudha revealed that Gehlot had referred to Pilot as “nikamma” (useless), “nakara” (worthless), and “gaddar” (traitor). Such harsh remarks have escalated the tensions between the two factions within the Congress party.
Sachin Pilot, a prominent figure in the state’s politics, hails from a family with deep-rooted ties to the Congress party. His father, Rajesh Pilot, was a respected leader who served the party diligently, and Sachin himself has been an active member for over two decades. Gudha’s endorsement of Pilot and his criticism of Gehlot have further complicated the already strained relationship between the two leaders.
The demand for a narco test on all ministers in the state has added a new twist to the unfolding drama. Narco analysis is a controversial investigative tool that involves administering drugs to a person to extract information while they are in a semi-conscious state. However, it is essential to note that the use of narco tests raises ethical concerns and legal issues in many jurisdictions. The demand by Gudha for such an extreme measure indicates the severity of the allegations being made against the state’s top officials.
As the political landscape in Rajasthan remains in turmoil, the citizens of the state are left in a state of uncertainty and confusion. The credibility of the accusations made by Gudha hinges on the contents of the ‘red diary’ and whether it can be authenticated as evidence of financial wrongdoing. The involvement of a senior leader like Sachin Pilot in this contentious issue adds another layer of complexity to the situation.
In response to Gudha’s claims, the state government is likely to face increased pressure to address the allegations and take appropriate action. Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot may find himself in a precarious position as he navigates these accusations and the internal party strife involving Sachin Pilot.
The coming days will undoubtedly be critical for the Congress party and the state government as they attempt to resolve the crisis and restore stability. Until then, the citizens of Rajasthan can only wait and watch as the political drama unfolds, hoping for clarity and accountability in the face of the serious allegations made by the former minister.
