A day before Raje government 4 years anniversary, the Congress on Tuesday unveiled a ‘digital countdown billboard’ at the party headquarters and expressed confidence in registering a victory in the assembly polls. The Congress party leaders also staged a protest at the district headquarters against the government’s celebration and called it a waste of public money.

Rajasthan Pradesh Congress Committee chief Sachin Pilot in a press conference unveiled the clock and also released a book detailing fulfillment of claims and budget announcements made by the BJP so far under the rule.

“It is immoral for the BJP government to celebrate the anniversary by spending public money. If it wants to celebrate, it should use party fund. The party leaders have protested against the misrule of the government which has been a complete failure to meet the promises committed by the party,” Pilot said at press conference held at party headquarters.

Accusing the saffron party-led government of increasing rate of crimes, keeping farmers waiting for loan waiver, the death of thousand cows due to corruption, bulldozing temples in Jaipur and cheating the government employees in the name of 7th pay commission, Pilot made a scathing attack. The leader also took on Raje government for privatization of education and health institutions terming the decision bad for the commoners. “To set political scores, the government privatized education and health institution. It reduced the budget allocations for both sectors and even the poor, budget was not allocated to the department in time which resulted in the death of 32,000 newborns per year in Rajasthan.

The pilot also accused the Raje government of corruption. He blamed that be it mines scam, LED scam, sand mining, giving contracts to NGOs under MJSY Scheme, BJP government was mired in corruption. “One 9W LED bulb was purchased at Rs 972 which is available at Rs 100 in the market, only 9 per cent of MoUs done in Resurgent Rajasthan realised on the ground, government schools were shut, free medicines availability has reduced, subsidy on agriculture support equipment was reduced.”
