Political mutiny in Rajasthan BJP has made party leaders worried. Rajasthan assembly poll, which is likely to be held in December 2018 and several party leaders have already distanced themselves from BJP. Manvendra Singh, son of former Union minister, Jaswant Singh has resigned from the party on September 22. Manvendra Singh has expressed his resentment towards both state and centre leadership over creating a partiality in fielding candidates for elections. Singh is the MLA from Sheo constituency in Barmer district and has a significant influence among the Rajput community of Rajasthan.
Apart from Manvendra Singh, MLA Ghanshyam Tiwari could also play spoilsport for BJP.
Tiwari had already resigned from the party in June and he is vocal on various agendas against BJP including farmers’ plight and demand for reservation for upper caste. As per the reports, Ghanshyam Tiwari was not pleased with Vasundhara Raje’s working module and stated Raje’s administration as ‘undeclared emergency’. He also floated his own party, named ‘Bharat Vahini Party’.
There are various community leaders, who have also opposed BJP government over adopting the callous attitude towards Jat and Gurjar in Rajasthan. Jat leader Hanuman Beniwal, a former BJP MLA has strongly opposed BJP over various issues and currently planning to launch his own party in Rajasthan. On the other hand, Gujjar leader Kirori Singh Bainsla, who contested Lok Sabha election in 2008 on BJP ticket, is resisting the party and praising efforts of Congress in Rajasthan.
It seems to be a tough task for BJP in Rajasthan, who is making efforts to return in power, as the party is facing several resentments against Vasundhara Raje leadership.
