Raje’s silence on Rajasthan crisis sets tongues wagging
Former Rajasthan chief minister Vasundhara Raje has remained conspicuously silent on the political crisis in the state even as her BJP colleagues have criticised the Ashok Gehlot government for coralling ministers and MLAs. Raje, however, has been active on social media on other issues. Nagaur MP and BJP ally Hanuman Beniwal on Thursday added to the mystery over her silence by claiming that Raje was trying to save the “minority” government. “…She has made calls to several Congress MLAs,” Beniwal tweeted. The Jat leader has an uneasy equation with Raje. A sense of unease is simmering as BJP members wait for the party to firm up its stance on floor test. There were reports that Raje would be in Jaipur on Wednesday but that did not happen amid speculations that the BJP strategy is being framed in Delhi.
