Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra said on Friday that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is scattered in Rajasthan and it does not have a chief ministerial face in the upcoming state Assembly polls, reported news agency PTI.


The Congress general secretary also took a dig at Prime Minister Narendra Modi's frequent visits to the poll-bound state, saying it seems that he is out to find a chief ministerial face for the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), reported PTI.


"The BJP is a scattered party in Rajasthan and it does not have a face for the chief minister's post. The prime minister is roaming every corner of the state. Sometimes, it seems that he is out to find his chief ministerial face," Priyanka Gandhi Vadra said while addressing a poll rally at Sagwada in Dungarpur district, reported PTI.


She also asked the voters to be careful if emotions and religion are used in order to get their votes, reported PTI.

"If emotions and religion are used in politics, one has to be careful," she said.

Hitting out at the BJP-led Centre, Gandhi said people across the country, including farmers, are suffering due to inflation, reported PTI.

The 200-member Rajasthan Assembly will go to polls on November 25 and the counting of votes will be taken up on December 3. The Congress is in power in the desert state.

Meanwhile, Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot said on Friday that the BJP's manifesto for the upcoming state Assembly polls has no substance and the public has been greatly disappointed by it, reported PTI.

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president J P Nadda released his party's "Sankalp Patra" for the November 25 polls here on Thursday with promises, such as LPG cylinders for Rs 450 each to the Ujjwala scheme beneficiaries, 2.5 lakh government jobs in five years and increasing the financial assistance to farmers under the PM-Kisan scheme, among others, reported PTI.

Asked about the saffron party's manifesto, Gehlot told reporters at the airport, "There is nothing new. According to me, they did not even do homework."

He said the plans that the Congress government has already implemented or the guarantees that have been promised by the ruling party in the desert state have been written in a twisted manner in the BJP's manifesto, reported PTI.

"The public has been very disappointed and there is no substance in the manifesto. That is why I said, less homework seems to have been done," the chief minister said, reported PTI.

On the announcement that domestic LPG cylinders would be given to the Ujjwala scheme beneficiaries for Rs 450, he said, "Under our pressure, the Centre first reduced the price of the gas cylinders. Now, they are talking about Rs 450. The BJP's aim is only to reach out to the Ujjwala beneficiaries, we have moved beyond that."

"Apart from the Ujjwala beneficiaries, we will give cylinders for Rs 500 to 1.05 crore families, including those covered under the National Food Security Act," Gehlot said, reported PTI.
