Tensions escalate in Rajasthan as the aftermath of the state assembly election takes a grim turn. The murder of Karni Sena chief Sukhdev Singh Gogamedi in his Jaipur residence on Tuesday has sparked a contentious political battle, casting shadows over the recent electoral outcome where the BJP emerged victorious.
In response to the tragic incident, Karni Sena declared a state-wide bandh on Wednesday, protesting the killing. The BJP, poised to assume power in the state, has alleged a vengeful agenda by the Congress following its defeat in the elections. BJP’s national spokesperson, Shehzad Poonawalla, intensified the narrative, sharing a video where Gogamedi purportedly highlighted concerns about his security and accused Congress Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot of downgrading his security detail despite prior security threat alerts.
The situation has led to a charged atmosphere, with both political parties trading accusations and raising questions about the circumstances surrounding the murder. As the investigation unfolds, the political blame game amplifies, deepening the rift between the BJP and the Congress in the wake of this tragic event.
