Former Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje Scindia met the party’s national president JP Nadda on Thursday afternoon. The political situation in Rajasthan and the upcoming assembly elections were discussed between the two leaders for more than an hour. If sources are to be believed, Vasundhara Raje Scindia has requested the party’s national president that the party high command should clarify her role in view of the assembly elections.
Vasundhara Raje is currently the national vice-president of the party, but she is not ready to give up her claim in the upcoming assembly elections in Rajasthan. His faction is constantly pressurizing the high command to declare him as the CM face and contest the elections, but keeping in view the political situation in the state, the party high command has already decided in principle that the party will continue in the state. Will contest the elections under collective leadership. The election will be fought with the face of PM Modi only.
However, from time to time, the high command also keeps sending messages that considering Vasundhara Raje’s political stature and experience, the party can give her a bigger role in view of the assembly elections. But due to the constantly changing equations in the state BJP, Vasundhara Raje’s faction is feeling uneasy.
