19 New Districts formed in Rajasthan by Gehlot Govt


Jaipur: The formation of 19 new districts was declared in Rajasthan by the state Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot. He also announced the formation of three new divisions namely Sikar, Pali, and Banswara.

According to political observers, through the formation of new districts, Gehlot has struck a regional as well as political balance in the state. It is his attempt to counter the impact of anti-incumbency for Congress through the announcement of such a large number of districts simultaneously.

Three new revenue divisions were also formed in Rajasthan to meet the rising dissatisfaction over the long distance from the division headquarters. So Pali, Sikar and Banswara divisions were announced.

Gehlot also tried to snatch away the temple and Hindutva agenda of the BJP by making several announcements for the development of major temples of the state and to speed up religious tourism in state.

But senior BJP leader and former Rajasthan CM Vasundhara Raje said, “The new announcements of the Congress government are just an attempt to fulfill its personal political interests. In this effort, they have put the entire economic system of Rajasthan at stake. The consequences of this will have to be borne by the people of the state and the state in the years to come. Many important facts have been ignored in the process of creating new districts. Because of this, instead of the ease that would result from the formation of new districts, the public will have to face administrative complications.”

“Rajasthan is a geographically big state, first of all, the formation of new districts was started by former Chief Minister Late. Bhairon Singh Shekhawat ji had made Hanumangarh and Pratapgarh districts, now the Congress government had to take this decision under the pressure of public opinion, but the people of the state will not be misled as they will remember issues like paper leak, false promise of farmer loan waiver, deteriorating law and order situation etc. Every section of the state is oppressed by various issues in the state,” she added.
