Rajasthan CM Gehlot: “Rajiv Gandhi paved the way for women’s empowerment”

Ashok Gehlot, the chief minister of Rajasthan, described the late Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi as a visionary and a forward-thinking leader, adding that part of the previous PM’s legacy was to support women’s empowerment by instituting policies like reservations for women in Panchayats and Municipalities.theindiaprint.com rajasthan cm gehlot rajiv gandhi paved the way for womens empowerment download 2023 08 21t121305.898 11zon

“I had the chance to work with former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi,” Gehlot remarked. He appointed me to lead the state Congress when I was just 34 years old.

“He was a visionary and took different actions to advance women’s rights and the growth of the nation. He gave his life in order to bring about peace across the sub-continent.

Rajivji was a visionary leader, CM Gehlot remarked at a press conference. He cleared the path for the reservation of one third of seats for women in municipal and panchayat government. Additionally, he decreased the voting age from 21 to 18 years old. He made a lot of groundbreaking choices.

Gehlot expressed his confusion at the renaming of the Nehru Memorial Museum and Library as the Prime Ministers’ Museum and Library Society. I never anticipated a prime minister acting in this manner. He leads the whole nation, not just one political party, as prime minister. The idea is equivalent to disparaging the Constitution. The BJP or the RSS may be exerting pressure on the PM to remove the names of people who made our country’s history.

What is the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) up to these days? They are determined to undo whatever the Congress party has accomplished. They are committing errors.

At the Congress state headquarters in Jaipur on the occasion of the late Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi’s 79th birthday, he stated in a press conference.

He remarked, “The governing party at the Center wants to forget those who gave their lives and stayed behind bars before Independence.

“I can assure you that people have made up their minds to repeat this government in Rajasthan,” Gehlot said when questioned about his party’s plan to win 156 of the state’s 200 assembly seats. People come first.

Rahul Gandhi, a Congressman, also visited Ladakh to present his father Rajiv Gandhi with flowers.

Rajiv Gandhi informed his father that Pangong Tso is the most beautiful spot on earth during a discussion Rahul remembers.

“I recall that when I was little, my father once brought back some photos of Pangong Tso after a trip there. This is the most beautiful spot on earth, he assured me. I was supposed to visit Ladkah during the “Bharat Jodo Yatra,” but because to logistical issues, the trip had to be postponed. I thus considered coming back later and staying longer. The Congress MP said, “I’ll also go to Kargil and the Nubra Valley.”

The 25th Rajiv Gandhi National Sadbhavana Award ceremony was held in Delhi on Sunday. Sonia Gandhi, Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge, and other party officials were in attendance.

On the occasion of the former prime minister’s 79th birthday, the event was hosted at Jawahar Bhawan in Delhi.

Rajiv Gandhi, according to Sonia Gandhi, supported the preservation and maintenance of the polymorphism that exists in India.

He was quite aware of the reality that only through valuing religious, ethnic, linguistic, and cultural diversity would India’s unity be fostered, she said.

At ‘Veer Bhumi’ in Delhi earlier today on the occasion of the former leader’s 79th birthday, Sonia Gandhi presented flowers.

At the former prime minister’s memorial this morning, Sonia Gandhi was joined by Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, Robert Vadra, and Congress National President Mallikarjun Kharge.
