Everyone can’t be satisfied: Gehlot
Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot acknowledged the disappointment among party workers, emphasizing that in a democracy, it’s natural not everyone will be satisfied, and decisions should involve consultation with other party leaders.
“It’s natural that everyone can’t be satisfied. Even if I am the CM, not all decisions can be taken just as I want. That is democracy. The kind of ups and downs that are happening in BJP, arson and vandalism have also taken place…This time the tickets were distributed with suggestions by everyone by and large. We will win the election. Common people want our government to come back to power because we have worked,” news agency ANI quoted CM Gehlot as saying.
List of candidates:
The Congress party unveiled five candidates on Tuesday, shortly after releasing its fourth list of 56 candidates. In the preceding weeks, the party had released lists of 19, 43, and 33 candidates for the Rajasthan assembly polls.
Rajasthan is set to hold elections on November 25, with vote counting scheduled for December 3.
