Speaking to news agency ANI, Ashok Gehlot criticized BJP and said, 'There is no discipline in this party. If we had also done this then I don't know what allegations they would have made against us and how they would have misled people. He polarized the elections.

Speaking to reporters, Gehlot said that in the Gogamedi case, I had to sign a document on the NIA investigation. This should have been done by the new CM. Now for seven days, they (BJP) have not been able to select a Chief Minister, I want them to make a decision soon.
Gehlot accused the BJP of winning the assembly elections in the state by raising religious issues and polarizing people. He said that the elections were polarized, they brought issues like triple talaq, abrogation of Article 370, murder of Kanhaiya Lal and spread the lie that Muslims were given 50 lakhs and Hindus were given only 5 lakhs. Gehlot also said that BJP won the elections by spreading lies. However, they will still cooperate with the new government.
Meanwhile, an important meeting has been called to assess the party's performance in the recent Rajasthan Assembly elections. Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge and party MP Rahul Gandhi have reached All India Congress Committee (AICC) headquarters in Delhi for this meeting.
Rajasthan Congress leader Govind Singh Dotasara has also reached Delhi to participate in the meeting. He focused the party on analyzing shortcomings and making improvements for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections. “We will discuss the reasons why we can return to power in the state,” he said. We will analyze our shortcomings and make improvements for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections.
Party leaders said the Congress high command held separate meetings on Friday to review the party's defeat in Chhattisgarh and Madhya Pradesh. During this, a detailed report was sought from the state unit heads on the disappointing performance of the party in the recent round of assembly elections.
The meeting was called by Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge at the AICC headquarters in Delhi, where former party chief Rahul Gandhi and other senior leaders were also present. The election results of four states, especially the defeat in Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh, have proved to be a major blow to the Congress's hopes for 2024.
