Comparing the petrol and electricity prices of Rajasthan with BJP-ruled states, Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma on Thursday said that Ashok Gehlot-led Congress government in Rajasthan did not do anything to control prices of petrol in the state.

Addressing an election rally in Churu, Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma said, “Petrol price in Guwahati is Rs 97-98 and under the Congress government in Rajasthan, petrol price is Rs 108. Rajasthan people pay more for diesel than we get in Assam. People here are paying Re 1 per unit more than Assam. Who are the real pickpocketers?”

Pointing out that the Congress government in Rajasthan has not done anything for the public welfare Sarma said, “Electricity prices are also higher here compared to Assam, Gujarat, Uttar Pradesh. Petrol prices are on the rise here. Diesel and electricity are expensive here. Congress government is not doing anything.”

Earlier today, on the last day of campaigning for the Rajasthan assembly elections, Union Home Minister Amit Shah held mega roadshows in Chittorgarh and Nathdwara constituencies of the poll-bound state.

Addressing a press conference in Jaipur earlier today, Amit Shah exuded confidence in his party, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), winning the assembly elections.

“In the last 6 months, I have been visiting Rajasthan. I have covered the entire state, and I want to say with confidence that the next government in Rajasthan will be formed by the BJP. There is a mood of change among the people in every corner of Rajasthan,” Shah said.

The Union Home Minister also criticized the ruling Congress government in Rajasthan, alleging that communal clashes took place in the state with planned strategies, and Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot failed to take any concrete action against the rioters due to ‘vote bank’ politics.
