INDIA MOBILE CONGRESS 2023
“People rejected
outdated phones
to accept us”:
PM Modi’s dig at
Congress party
First India Bureau
New Delhi
Prime Minister Narendra
Modi on Friday used the
inauguration of 7th India
Mobile Congress to take
a fresh dig at the Congress
party along with high-
lighting India’s marve-
lous achievement in 5G
technology and saying
that the country is moving
towards taking the lead in
6G technology.
In a fresh broadside
against the Congress par-
ty, Modi termed 2014 as
not just a date but a ‘bad-
lav’ (change) when peo-
ple rejected outdated
phones with frozen
screens to choose a gov-
ernment that has trans-
formed the landscape.
PM Modi stated that
within one year of the 5G
rollout, about 4 lakh 5G
base stations have been
established, which have
covered more than 97%
of the cities and 80% of
the population. He said
now the country is mov-
ing towards taking the
lead in 6G technology.
India is not only
expanding the 5G
network in the
country but also
laying emphasis on
becoming a leader
in 6G.
A restart, or
charging the
battery or even
changing the
battery did not
work. In 2014,
people left such
outdated phones
and gave us an
opportunity to
serve the country.

IN BRIEF
Jaipur: Rajasthan Univer-
sity has incurred a signifi-
cant loss of Rs 100 crore
as it will not receive the
intended amount due to a
lack of NAAC accredita-
tion.The university was
slated to receive Rs 100
crore, but since 2016, it
has failed to utilize these
funds. The allocation is ef-
fective for a period of five
years. The period of
NAAC accreditation re-
mains for five years which
ended in March 2021.
Since then, there is no
NAAC accreditation. The
former Vice Chancellor
did not take effective
measures to ensure the
university’s access to these
funds, resulting in this
substantial financial set-
back. This missed oppor-
tunity to receive Rs 100
crore is a significant blow
to Rajasthan University’s
financial resources.

notice to the Congress
general secretary over
her “envelope” re-
marks related to the

came a day after the

in its submission, told
a public meeting in
Dausa on October 20
that she saw onTVthat
when an envelope of
donation made by
Modi at a temple was
opened, it carried only
Rs 21. She adds that
she saw the news and
is not aware if the
claim is true or not, the
BJP’s complaint read.
The priest, Hemraj
Poswal, issued a state-
ment on Friday saying
he never gave any
statement about any
envelope dropped by
Prime Minister Modi.
Poswal alleged that
some local leaders
“planted” the news in
the local media in or-
der to tarnish the image

n keeping with
the trend of
state Congress
President contesting in
the Rajasthan assembly
elections, this time state
president Govind Singh
Dotasra in the fray. Con-
gress state presidents
play role of commanders
in elections but in most
of elections, the com-
manders enter the battle-
field. This trend has been
going on in Congress
since the 2008 elections.
According to election
strategists and political
experts, there are both
advantages and disad-
vantages of the party
president contesting the
elections. While the par-
ty chief contesting the
elections creates enthusi-
asm among the party
workers, the party chief
does not focus on the or-
ganization while contest-
ing the elections.
If the party loses the
elections while being the
party president, then the
entire party gets dis-
graced. This is because
there have been two
Congress presidents who
had to face defeat in the
assembly elections.

RAJASTHAN
ASSEMBLY
ELECTIONS
2023
DAYS
FOR
ELECTION COMMISSION EXTENDS VOTING
DURATION TO 11 hrs IN RAJASTHAN POLLS
Jaipur: The Election Commission has
extended the voting duration to 11 hours for
the upcoming assembly elections in Rajasthan on
November 25. This extension means that voting
will commence at 7 am
and continue until 6 pm,
marking the longest
voting period ever
granted in the state.
Directions in this regard
were issued by the
Election Commission of India. In the previous
assembly elections in 2018 and 2013, voting took
place from 8 am to 5 pm. The extended voting
hours are expected to encourage higher voter
turnout, offering more citizens the opportunity to
cast their ballots and participate in the democratic
process. This move is aimed at ensuring a more
inclusive and accessible electoral system.

STATE PRESIDENTS OF CONGRESS WHO HAVE
CONTESTED IN ELECTIONS
FOR BJP, STATE HEAD CP JOSHI MIGHT NOT
CONTEST ELECTION THIS TIME
 In 2008, the then state president of Congress CP
Joshi had contested elections. Although CP Joshi lost
the election by only one vote.
 In 2013, the then Congress President Dr Chan-
drabhan had contested the assembly elections. He is
probably the first Congress President whose
security deposit was forfeited.
 In 2018, the then Con-
gress President Sachin Pilot
contested elections from
Tonk. Pilot registered a big
victory in those elections.
Now, the current president
Govind Singh Dotasra is
contesting from Laxmangarh in
the 2023 elections. Winning this
election is a question of prestige for
both Dotasra and Congress.
The BJP has also been adopting a similar
strategy, many state presidents of BJP have
contested assembly elections while being the
State President. Former Chief Minister Vasundhara
Raje contested the MLA election twice during her
tenure and both the times, BJP got full majority in the
State. Similarly, in the 2018 elections,
BJP President Ashok Parnami had
contested from Adarsh Nagar assembly
seat of Jaipur but he was defeated in this
election. Before this, Late Harishankar
Bhabhada had also contested the MLA
elections while being the BJP President.
Late Lalit Kishore Chaturvedi had also
contested the Assembly elections while
being the BJP President. However, this
time there is every possibility that the
current BJP President CP Joshi will
not contest the elections.

RAIDS, SUMMONS
TO PUT CONGRESS
ONTHEDEFENSIVE
ongress in Rajasthan is sure to be pushed on
to the back foot after the Enforcement Direc-
torate’s raid on the state Congress president
Govind Singh Dotasara and summons to Chief Min-
ister Ashok Gehlot’s son Vaibhav under the Foreign
Exchange Management Act. The Congress called it
an act of intimidation just before the Assembly elec-
tions.Ashok Gehlot compared ED to a locust swarm
and accused the agency of spreading terror and said
that raids were a sign that his government is coming
back to power. That will be known only after the
votes are counted but in the meantime it will have to
be seen if voters view the raids and summons the
same way as the Congress.
If the ED investigation is fast-paced and includes
the alleged and much-talked about red diary then the
Congress may find it difficult to manage two fronts
simultaneously. Vaibhav, Dotasara or both? It doesn’t
matter because the Congress will be on the defensive.

IMPOSSIBLE FOR US
POLICE GUN OWNERS
merica is successfully handling two con-
flicts—one in Ukraine and the other in West
Asia, but, ironically, it is unable to tackle the
problem of easy availability of firearms of all varie-
ties despite 43,000 Americans being killed in sense-
less gun violence. The army reservist who went on a
shooting spree in a bowling alley and in Maine was
one of several such tragic incidents which theAmer-
icans and the administration will mourn before wait-
ing for another mad man to go berserk.
At the root of this problem is the inability of the
Americangovernmenttoputguncontrollawsinplace.
In public debates
there’s always a de-
mand for stricter con-
trol on guns. Political
debates in the US also
perfunctorily con-
demn gun violence
but when it comes to
passing a legislation
making purchase of
weapons tougher the
leaders develop cold
feet. President Joe
Biden has proposed
gun policy legislation
but it is unlikely to be
passed during his pre-
sent tenure. The Sec-
ond Amendment to
the American Consti-
tution provides for
the right to bear arms. Thus empowered, one-third of
US adults are said to own a gun.
APew Research Centre survey of June 2023 found
that “Republicans and Republican-leaning independ-
ents are more than twice as likely as Democrats and
Democrat leaners to say they personally own a gun
(45% vs. 20%)” establishing that the right-wing
white Americans are pro-guns. They constitute 38
percent of the gun-owning population. That is what
makes legislation on gun control a near impossibil-
ity with the Republicans never agreeing to the Dem-
ocrats views on the subject but shedding crocodile
tears over mass killings.

Jaipur, Saturday | October 28, 2023 www.firstindia.co.in firstindia.co.in/epapers/jaipur thefirstindia thefirstindia thefirstindia
t the halfway
stage of the
ODI World
Cup, Team
India stands
pretty at the top of the
points table with a berth in
the semis all but assured.
Having won all their 5
matches, India now re-
quires just 2 wins out of
the next 4 games to ensure
an outright qualification in
the top 4. But even one
more win might be suffi-
cient to take them through.
Of course, given the team’s
terrific form and domi-
nance till now, any blip
will be a big surprise.
After a comprehensive
victory over New Zealand
last Sunday, the team has
got a well-deserved break
and now faces defending
champions England who
are struggling so badly
that they may well be oust-
ed from the tournament if
they lose one more game.
But India will be looking
to continue their momen-
tum and stay as clinical as
they have been in the past
few weeks.
The New Zealand side
were expected to present a
strong challenge to the In-
dian team but that wasn’t
so! Kiwi batters laid a
strong foundation for a big
score, with Rachin Ravin-
dra and Devon Mitchell
stringing a 150 plus third
wicket stand. But Indian
bowlers were up to the task
and ultimately restricted
the total to 273. Then In-
dian batsmen, led by Koh-
li, finished another run
chase easily, ensuring that
the 20-year unbeaten Kiwi
streak against India in ICC
events had ended!
It was also the 5th con-
secutive successful run
chase in this competition
by India. They haven’t
been tested yet batting first
and going ahead will likely
put themselves in a bat-
first situation if they win
the toss. Rohit has been in
great hitting form, justify-
ing his ‘hitman’ tag. His
early assault on the opposi-
tion lays the perfect foun-
dation for virat Kohli and
company.
India’s batting maestro,
‘King’ Kohli, is now just
one hundred short of
equalling Tendulkar’s 49
ODI centuries. He lost out
on the opportunity in the
previous game as he fell
just 5 short trying to go for
the three-figure mark. But
Kohli needs to be slightly
cautious of the weak lower
order which doesn’t wag.
On the night, India were
already 5 down and had 4
bowlers following the
Kohli-Jadeja pair at the
crease. Previously there
have been many examples
where India’s tail has been
shot off in a jiffy.
Moreover, there’s the
Malinga record from the
2007 World Cup where he
picked up 4 wickets in 4
balls when South Africa
needed just a couple of runs
and had 5 wickets in hand.
While such scenarios are
far flung but cricket is a
funny game and the Indian
batters need to be slightly
cautious in a world event!
One of the prime rea-
sons for Indian batters
shining is the great effort
being put in by the bowlers
to restrict opposition to-
tals. Bumrah has been ex-
ceptional at the start and
then later in the innings.
He is a strong candidate to
top the wicket takers list
this World Cup and has
been economical as well.
Shami, brought into the
eleven against the Kiwis,
showed why he is a must-
have in every game. He
picked up a 5-wicket haul
and bowled lethal yorkers
in the death overs.
It’s not just the pacers
but spinners have found
their groove as well -
though, a lot of credit must
be given to Rohit’s cap-
taincy too. His field place-
ments for Kuldeep have
been precise and attacking.
Rohit boosted Kuldeep’s
confidence even when he
was getting hit in the last
match and wasn’t shy of
keeping a slip when neces-
sary. The result was that
despite an initial onslaught,
Kuldeep came back to pick
up 2 key wickets to finish
strongly in an otherwise
lacklustre spell.
In contrast to India’s su-
perb performances, their
next opponent, England’s
campaign has been in
shambles! They desper-
ately need a win to stay
alive in the competition.
Until now, they have been
listless and haven’t played
like world champs. Inter-
estingly, most English ex-
perts have felt that the
team was underprepared
coming into the tourna-
ment. With many ageing
superstars in the side, Eng-
land needs a miracle to
now reach the semis. They
need to revisit their ‘Bazz-
ball’ style and see if it is at
all conducive in Indian
conditions!
On current form, India
starts firm favourites but as
comprehensive victories
can bring complacency,
Hitman’s Heroes need to
be careful. They were ex-
cellent in league stages in
the 2015 and the 2019
World Cup too. It’s knock-
out matches that have been
the Achilles heel for India.
For the moment, Team In-
dia needs to concentrate on
the 3 matches that they
play next week and con-
tinue their quest to stay on
top of the points table!

Shivendra Parmar Jaipur n keeping with the trend of state Congress President contesting in the Rajasthan assembly elections, this time state president Govind Singh Dotasra in the fray. Con- gress state presidents play role of commanders in elections but in most of elections, the com- manders enter the battle- field. This trend has been going on in Congress since the 2008 elections. According to election strategists and political experts, there are both advantages and disad- vantages of the party president contesting the elections. While the par- ty chief contesting the elections creates enthusi- asm among the party workers, the party chief does not focus on the or- ganization while contest- ing the elections. If the party loses the elections while being the party president, then the entire party gets dis- graced. This is because there have been two Congress presidents who had to face defeat in the assembly elections. PARTY CHIEFS WHO CONTESTED IN POLLS Commanders of Congress and BJP in the battlefield I QUOTE-UNQUOTE Gehlot’s statement on ED is shameful. Comparison of Central Investigation Agency with a dog is Chief Minister’s mental bankruptcy. Central Investigative Agen- cies under UPA rule were misused.

Although CP Joshi lost the election by only one vote.  In 2013, the then Congress President Dr Chan- drabhan had contested the assembly elections. He is probably the first Congress President whose security deposit was forfeited.  In 2018, the then Con- gress President Sachin Pilot contested elections from Tonk. Pilot registered a big victory in those elections. Now, the current president Govind Singh Dotasra is contesting from Laxmangarh in the 2023 elections. Winning this election is a question of prestige for both Dotasra and Congress. The BJP has also been adopting a similar strategy, many state presidents of BJP have contested assembly elections while being the State President. Former Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje contested the MLA election twice during her tenure and both the times, BJP got full majority in the State. Similarly, in the 2018 elections, BJP President Ashok Parnami had contested from Adarsh Nagar assembly seat of Jaipur but he was defeated in this election. Before this, Late Harishankar Bhabhada had also contested the MLA elections while being the BJP President. Late Lalit Kishore Chaturvedi had also contested the Assembly elections while being the BJP President. However, this time there is every possibility that the current BJP President CP Joshi will not contest the elections.

The Congress called it an act of intimidation just before the Assembly elec- tions.Ashok Gehlot compared ED to a locust swarm and accused the agency of spreading terror and said that raids were a sign that his government is coming back to power. That will be known only after the votes are counted but in the meantime it will have to be seen if voters view the raids and summons the same way as the Congress. If the ED investigation is fast-paced and includes the alleged and much-talked about red diary then the Congress may find it difficult to manage two fronts simultaneously. Vaibhav, Dotasara or both? It doesn’t matter because the Congress will be on the defensive. C IMPOSSIBLE FOR US POLICE GUN OWNERS merica is successfully handling two con- flicts—one in Ukraine and the other in West Asia, but, ironically, it is unable to tackle the problem of easy availability of firearms of all varie- ties despite 43,000 Americans being killed in sense- less gun violence. The army reservist who went on a shooting spree in a bowling alley and in Maine was one of several such tragic incidents which theAmer- icans and the administration will mourn before wait- ing for another mad man to go berserk. At the root of this problem is the inability of the Americangovernmenttoputguncontrollawsinplace. In public debates there’s always a de- mand for stricter con- trol on guns. Political debates in the US also perfunctorily con- demn gun violence but when it comes to passing a legislation making purchase of weapons tougher the leaders develop cold feet. President Joe Biden has proposed gun policy legislation but it is unlikely to be passed during his pre- sent tenure. The Sec- ond Amendment to the American Consti- tution provides for the right to bear arms. Thus empowered, one-third of US adults are said to own a gun. APew Research Centre survey of June 2023 found that “Republicans and Republican-leaning independ- ents are more than twice as likely as Democrats and Democrat leaners to say they personally own a gun (45% vs. 20%)” establishing that the right-wing white Americans are pro-guns. They constitute 38 percent of the gun-owning population. That is what makes legislation on gun control a near impossibil- ity with the Republicans never agreeing to the Dem- ocrats views on the subject but shedding crocodile tears over mass killings. A US President Joe Biden has proposed gun policy legislation but it is unlikely to be passed during his present tenure.

Having won all their 5 matches, India now re- quires just 2 wins out of the next 4 games to ensure an outright qualification in the top 4. But even one more win might be suffi- cient to take them through. Of course, given the team’s terrific form and domi- nance till now, any blip will be a big surprise. After a comprehensive victory over New Zealand last Sunday, the team has got a well-deserved break and now faces defending champions England who are struggling so badly that they may well be oust- ed from the tournament if they lose one more game. But India will be looking to continue their momen- tum and stay as clinical as they have been in the past few weeks. The New Zealand side were expected to present a strong challenge to the In- dian team but that wasn’t so! Kiwi batters laid a strong foundation for a big score, with Rachin Ravin- dra and Devon Mitchell stringing a 150 plus third wicket stand. But Indian bowlers were up to the task and ultimately restricted the total to 273. Then In- dian batsmen, led by Koh- li, finished another run chase easily, ensuring that the 20-year unbeaten Kiwi streak against India in ICC events had ended! It was also the 5th con- secutive successful run chase in this competition by India. They haven’t been tested yet batting first and going ahead will likely put themselves in a bat- first situation if they win the toss. Rohit has been in great hitting form, justify- ing his ‘hitman’ tag. His early assault on the opposi- tion lays the perfect foun- dation for virat Kohli and company. India’s batting maestro, ‘King’ Kohli, is now just one hundred short of equalling Tendulkar’s 49 ODI centuries. He lost out on the opportunity in the previous game as he fell just 5 short trying to go for the three-figure mark. But Kohli needs to be slightly cautious of the weak lower order which doesn’t wag. On the night, India were already 5 down and had 4 bowlers following the Kohli-Jadeja pair at the crease. Previously there have been many examples where India’s tail has been shot off in a jiffy. Moreover, there’s the Malinga record from the 2007 World Cup where he picked up 4 wickets in 4 balls when South Africa needed just a couple of runs and had 5 wickets in hand. While such scenarios are far flung but cricket is a funny game and the Indian batters need to be slightly cautious in a world event! One of the prime rea- sons for Indian batters shining is the great effort being put in by the bowlers to restrict opposition to- tals. Bumrah has been ex- ceptional at the start and then later in the innings. He is a strong candidate to top the wicket takers list this World Cup and has been economical as well. Shami, brought into the eleven against the Kiwis, showed why he is a must- have in every game. He picked up a 5-wicket haul and bowled lethal yorkers in the death overs. It’s not just the pacers but spinners have found their groove as well - though, a lot of credit must be given to Rohit’s cap- taincy too. His field place- ments for Kuldeep have been precise and attacking. Rohit boosted Kuldeep’s confidence even when he was getting hit in the last match and wasn’t shy of keeping a slip when neces- sary. The result was that despite an initial onslaught, Kuldeep came back to pick up 2 key wickets to finish strongly in an otherwise lacklustre spell. In contrast to India’s su- perb performances, their next opponent, England’s campaign has been in shambles! They desper- ately need a win to stay alive in the competition. Until now, they have been listless and haven’t played like world champs. Inter- estingly, most English ex- perts have felt that the team was underprepared coming into the tourna- ment. With many ageing superstars in the side, Eng- land needs a miracle to now reach the semis. They need to revisit their ‘Bazz- ball’ style and see if it is at all conducive in Indian conditions! On current form, India starts firm favourites but as comprehensive victories can bring complacency, Hitman’s Heroes need to be careful. They were ex- cellent in league stages in the 2015 and the 2019 World Cup too. It’s knock- out matches that have been the Achilles heel for India. For the moment, Team In- dia needs to concentrate on the 3 matches that they play next week and con- tinue their quest to stay on top of the points table! THE VIEWS EXPRESSED BY THE AUTHOR ARE PERSONAL PAST LESSONS On current form, India starts firm favourites but as comprehensive vic- tories can bring compla- cency, Hitman’s Heroes need to be careful. They were excellent in league stages in the 2015 and the 2019 World Cup too. It’s knockout matches that have been the Achilles heel for India. India’s batting maestro, ‘King’ Kohli, is now just one hundred short of equalling Tendulkar’s 49 ODI centuries.

CHANDRAYAAN-3 ISRO says ‘ejecta halo’formed during landing ANI Bengaluru he Indian Space Re- search Organi- sation on Friday re- vealed that lander Vikram displaced ap- proximately 2.06 tonnes of lunar regolith (rocks and soil) as it landed on the surface of the Moon. Chandrayaan-3 made a historic landing on the moon on August 23. The lander module, named Vikram, and the rover, Pragyan, touched down on the Shiva Shakti Point in the South Polar Region of the Moon. As it descended, the Chandrayaan-3 Lander Module generated a spectacular ‘ejecta halo’ of lunar material. This phenomenon was cap- tured and analyzed by scientists from the Na- tional Remote Sensing Centre (NRSC), a part of ISRO.According to their findings, approximately 2.06 tonnes of lunar epiregolith, or surface material, were ejected and displaced over an area of 108.4 sqms around the landing site. The Chandrayaan-3 mission is a follow-up to the Chandrayaan-2 mis- sion and aims to demon- strate end-to-end capabil- ity in safe landing and roving on the lunar sur- face.Scientists compared the pre- and post-landing high-resolution imagery from the Orbiter High- Resolution Camera (OHRC) of the Chan- drayaan-2 orbiter. The images were acquired hours before and after the landing event, which characterised this ‘ejecta halo’ appearing as an ir- regular bright patch sur- rounding the lander.

  • 9. ASSEMBLY POLLS Congress-BJP ‘forget’promises in candidate selection Pankaj Soni Jaipur egarding the Assembly elec- tions, both BJP and Congress do not seem to be living up to the promises made to their workers regard- ing the ticket selection process. The result is be- ing seen in the form of rebellion in both the par- ties. To control this rebel- lion, parties have to pre- pare separate strategies. Seeing this rebellion, both the parties are now brainstorming about changing the formula in their future lists. BJP had announced to keep its officials away from electoral politics in the Assembly elections. But this could not hap- pen. In its very first list, the party gave tickets to many officials, among whom the names of Di- yakumari, Baba Bal- aknath, Bhajanlal Shar- ma, Santosh Ahlawat, Jitendra Gothwal and Heera Lal Nagar are prominent. Contrary to expectations, in its sec- ond list, BJP also gave tickets to all those MLAs, whose replacement was being talked about for the last three years. BJP has announced the names of 124 candidates so far. Out of these, the stake has been played on 12 such candidates, who had contested as independent candidates in the last elections. These include seats like Ganganagar, Sujangarh, Jhunjhunu, Bansur, Kotputli, Merta, Badikuni, Sapotra and Thanagaji. Meanwhile, to counter the anti-incumbency wave, Congress had re- peatedly announced cut- ting the tickets of sitting MLAs on the basis of their performance. But Congress fielded 67 of its 102 sitting MLAs from among the candidates de- clared in its three lists. Tickets of only two MLAs were cancelled but their relatives were given tickets in their place. Leaders in the queue for tickets from both BJP and Congress have started contacting third parties as soon as the list came out. It is being told that most of the leaders of BJP and Congress are in con- tact with Hanuman Beni- wal’s party RLP. RLP Chief Beniwal said that the party is brainstorming on the claims of all the claimants. Tickets will be announced keeping all as- pects in mind. According to Beniwal, there are more than half a dozen candidates in touch with his party officials.

Addressing a press conference here, the CM alleged that the agency made Dotasra its target because he is very much vocal against the Centre. “Congress chief (of Rajasthan) has done so much advertisement of the government’s poli- cies, programs, deci- sions...however ED reached his home...It has reached only to target him as he speaks a lot about the government,” he said. He further said that it’s the ED, ‘more than dogs’ that is on the prowl in the country. “Achief minister (Bhupesh Baghel) had to say that more than dogs, it’s the ED that is on the prowl in the country. (Desh me kutton se jyada ED ghum rahi hai). What could be a bigger misfor- tune than this?” he said. The ED raided premises of PCC chief Govind Sin- ghDotasraandotherCon- gressleadersonThursday.

It has been de- cided that a big election campaign will soon be started by the party and this campaign will start after the ticket is an- nounced. In this cam- paign, senior Congress leaders will campaign in different directions. Along with CM Ashok Gehlot, PCC Chief Do- tasara, in-charge Sukhjinder Randhawa, Sachin Pilot, Dr. CP Joshi, national leaders of Congress will also cam- paign.

Aishwary Pradhan Jaipur Hitting back at CM Ge- hlot’s remark that there are more people of ED roaming in country than dogs, Union Minister Kailash Choudhary said that Congress workers and MLAs kept looting like loose bulls for five years, but the CM could not stop them. “ED’s action is cor- rect. The youth of Raj should get justice. As soon as ED action was taken, the CM started getting angry. This is just the beginning, we will not spare any corrupt per- son. This is justice done to those who were cheat- ed in the paper leak.” said that the Congress gov- ernment has given 5 guarantees on Friday but the CM should first an- swer what happened to the guarantees given ear- lier. “Their leader Rahul Gandhi had promised loan waiver in 10 days, but the land of 19,000 farmers has been auc- tioned. Many farmers died by suicide but the loan wasn’t waived off.” Vinod Singh Chouhan and Ramesh Bhojak Jaipur/Sikar A day after the ED con- ducted searches at the premises of PCC Chief GS Dotasra and sum- moned RCA President Vaibhav Gehlot in a sepa- rate case, Congress held a protest outside the ED office in Jaipur.

It was pointed out that the ward number had changed following a delimitation process carried out two decades ago. It was clarified that Vai- bhav Gehlot doesn’t currently reside at mentioned address.
