Jaipur: Former Rajasthan chief minister
Vasundhara Raje on Monday launched a broadside against incumbent
Ashok Gehlot accusing him of drying out the state exchequer in
last one year.

The Congress government has failed to set up a milestone
in any sector, she alleged.

The Gehlot government indulged in "diversion tactics" on
important issues of development and growth of the state and
put back Rajasthan in the category of "bimuru-rajya" (sick
state", Raje told reporters here on the eve of Panchayati raj
elections.

"It was my BJP government that elevated Rajasthan from
`Bimaru rajya` to a surplus state of annual budgets, now in
December after 13 months of the rule, Gehlot and his finance
secretary disclosed openly that funds and exchequer have dried
out," Raje said.

During its tenure, the Congress dropped 13 ambitious
plans of her BJP government, she claimed.

"Bhamashah Yojna to benefit 50 lakh families and women,
Akshat yojna to provide unemployment wages and financial
support, clothes to women working under NREGA, pension to MISA
prisoners, and many other schemes were deliberately shelved
because it belonged to our tenure," Raje said.
