Raje fooling the people over oil refinery: Gehlot

Jodhpur: Former Rajasthan chief minister Ashok Gehlot today said that Vasundhara Raje is fooling the people in the state by planning the foundation stone laying ceremony of an oil refinery for the second time.

Gehlot, who was in Jodhpur for the first time after being designated as the AICC General Secretary and party in-charge of Gujarat, flayed Raje government for not making the MoU with state oil firm HPCL public, while talking to the media here.

“We had got the foundation stone laying ceremony done but the Raje government stalled the project finding fault with the agreement conditions,” he alleged.

“Now again planning the same event second time by inviting Prime Minister Narendra Modi is nothing but a desperate attempt by Raje to score in his eyes and secure her seat , Gehlot said.

Demanding the MoU between the Rajasthan government and HPCL to be made public, Gehlot accused Raje of hiding the revised terms and conditions.

He alleged that nothing has been changed in the MoU and she has just been fooling around in order to regain her losing ground.

Gehlot also alleged that the Raje government has either stalled the welfare schemes introduced by his government or changed the name to fool the people by claiming credit for those schemes.
