The Rajasthan Chief Minister stated that the more than 56 percent of criminal cases against women in Rajasthan were concluded as fake during the investigation. He stated that nobody had the right to tarnish the state’s image in relation to safety for girls and women.
“Rajasthan Police is doing a wonderful job, crimes in Rajasthan are less compared to other states. The atmosphere is changing even inside the police station. It is a very revolutionary decision to make compulsory FIR. This revolutionary step should be done in every state of the country,” CM Gehlot said.

PM Modi also stated that Rajasthan needs a government which gives top priority to development, while for the Congress there is nothing more important than corruption and dynastic politics.
At an election rally in Rajasthan’s Pali district, he said the Congress cannot think of anything except appeasement.
He also accused the Congress and its allies of have an anti-women mindset.
“Ever since the law giving reservation to women ‘Narishakti Vandan Act’ was passed, they have started a campaign against women. The leaders of the arrogant alliance have made very objectionable comments about our mothers and sisters,” he charged.
The Bihar chief minister used extremely derogatory words against women in the Assembly but no Congress leader said anything about this. “This is the real face of Congress, which the people of Rajasthan have recognised,” he said.
He also said that the Congress turns a blind eye to incidents of atrocities against Dalits.
“Congress closes its eyes when it sees those committing atrocities against Dalits,” he said.
“The Congress government here thinks of nothing except appeasement,” he added.
The prime minister said today the entire country is working day and night for the goal of development and Rajasthan will play a huge role in the heights India will reach in the 21st century.
“There is a need for a government in Rajasthan which gives top priority to the development of the state,” he said.
