BJP is taking out Parivartan Yatra in Rajasthan but it is not able to change the hearts of the dissidents.


A team has been formed for Parivartan Yatras. In which heads of media, social media, IT and publicity have been made. The people of the state are suffering due to corruption, appeasement and misrule under the Gehlot government.

Mutual factionalism in Rajasthan BJP is being exposed openly. As soon as the assembly elections come near, all the big leaders including former Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje are trying to bring themselves to the front. Vasundhara supporters believe that now she has the last chance to show her strength. If you miss this time, then you will be left behind in mainstream politics. Many pro-Vasundhara MLAs are even afraid that if Madam becomes politically weak, then her ticket may also be in danger. That’s why all the supporters of Vasundhara are insisting that Madam should speak bluntly to the party high command.

The central leadership of the party is also fully alert about the split in the BJP in Rajasthan. The BJP high command knows that all the leaders have their own factions in the Rajasthan BJP. Because of which everyone is busy pulling each other’s legs. The BJP has not entrusted the leadership of the Parivartan Sankalp Yatra to any big leader in the four regions of the state due to mutual tussle among its regional leaders. The BJP has decided to collectively lead all the four yatras. So that no leader can show himself big on the pretext of travel. The party has given the responsibility of coordinating the yatra to the leaders of the second row so that the yatra can be concluded without factionalism.

In such a situation, the race to become the Chief Minister is over between former Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje, Union Ministers Gajendra Singh Shekhawat, Arjun Meghwal, State President CP Joshi, Leader of Opposition Rajendra Rathod, Deputy Leader of Opposition Satish Poonia and any other leader. Now if the party comes to power then only the top leadership will decide who will become the chief minister. Regarding the Parivartan Yatra to be taken out by the BJP, the convenor of the Election Management Committee, Narayan Panchariya said that the BJP has started the Parivartan Yatra from September 2 in the state. This yatra will cover a distance of 8,982 kilometers under the collective leadership of the state BJP from four different places and directions and cover 200 assembly constituencies of the state. During the Parivartan Yatra, Kisan Choupal, youth motorcycle rally, women’s meeting and Dalit Choupal are also being organized.

The first Parivartan Sankalp Yatra started on September 2 from Trinetra Ganesh Temple Ranthambore Sawaimadhopur under the leadership of BJP National President JP Nadda. In which the state leadership of BJP was present. The first Parivartan Yatra will cover 1847 kilometers in 18 days in 47 assembly constituencies of Bharatpur division, Jaipur division and Tonk district. The convenor of this yatra is former BJP state president Arun Chaturvedi and co-convenor BJP state vice-president Jitendra Gothwal. The second Parivartan Yatra started from Beneshwar Dham Dungarpur under the leadership of Union Home Minister Amit Shah on September 3. The second yatra will cover a total of 52 assembly constituencies of Udaipur division, Kota division and Bhilwara district covering 2433 kms in 19 days. State Vice President Chunnilal Garasia and co-divisional in-charge Pramod Sambhar will discharge the responsibility of co-convenor of this yatra.

The third Parivartan Yatra started on September 4 from Ramdevra Jaisalmer under the leadership of Defense Minister Rajnath Singh. This yatra will cover 2574 kilometers in 18 days in total 51 assembly constituencies of Jodhpur division, Ajmer and Nagaur districts. Rajya Sabha MP Rajendra Gehlot has been made the coordinator of this yatra. Jodhpur sub-division in-charge Sanwalaram Devasi will be the co-convenor. The fourth Parivartan Yatra started on September 5 from Gogamedi Hanumangarh under the leadership of Union Minister Nitin Gadkari. This yatra will cover a total of 50 assembly constituencies of Bikaner division, Jhunjhunu, Sikar and Alwar districts covering 2128 kilometers in 18 days. Former Union Minister CR Chaudhary and BJP State Vice President Shravan Bagdi have been made co-convenors of this yatra.

A team has been formed for all these visits. In which heads of media, social media, IT and publicity have been made. The people of the state are suffering due to corruption, appeasement and misrule under the Gehlot government. That’s why the public has taken a resolution to overthrow this anti-people government of the Congress. Central level leaders flagged off all the four Parivartan Yatras of BJP being taken out before the assembly elections. BJP has not given the responsibility of these yatras to any one face. In such a situation, the biggest question is arising that why did the BJP high command not give responsibility to any local leader in state level visits? The main reason for this is believed to be the prevailing factionalism in the party. Putting forward the face of any one leader can anger other leaders of the party. To avoid this, the party has taken this step. The party high command does not want any differences to come to the fore before the elections.

Former Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje is the National Vice President of BJP. The party high command has not given him any major responsibility before the assembly elections. Raje and his supporters are said to be angry with this. Even regarding Parivartan Yatra, the party has not given any major responsibility to Raje. Raje had not participated in many programs of the BJP earlier. A few days ago, Vasundhara Raje did not attend Amit Shah’s program in Gangapur City, while Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla was present in that program. However, she joined the Parivartan Yatra.

The BJP high command is making Prime Minister Narendra Modi the face in the assembly elections. But he has not been able to control the war within the party so far. Vasundhara Raje has a lot of influence on the people even today due to being the Chief Minister twice. If the party high command ignores him in the elections, then it can also prove to be a loss deal for the party. At present Vasundhara Raje is still keeping silence and is waiting for the right time. Inside, Vasundhara Raje has prepared the next plan of her politics. That’s why she is ending political differences with her staunch opponents. On the other hand, in Rajasthan, Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot is trying hard to form the Congress government again. With the efforts of the Congress high command, Sachin Pilot has also joined hands with Gehlot. In such a situation, how much the BJP is able to control its internal division. The future of forming the next BJP government in Rajasthan hinges on this.
