Ditch smartphones & read history, Gehlot asks youth

Sunday, 21 April 2019 | PTI | Jaipur

Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot Saturday urged the new generation to brush up their knowledge of history and not fall prey to the BJP's "misleading" campaign on social media.  

"Teams of social media are at work. They (BJP) are spending crores of rupees to attack... Conspiracy is going on to mislead people of the country," he told reporters in Jaisalmer district. 

"People in the BJP are misleading the new generation through social media. I appeal to youths to limit the use of smartphones and read history," he said.  

Gehlot also asserted that Prime Minister Narendra Modi will not come back to power.

He claimed that there was a wave in favour of the Congress in the entire state and an undercurrent against Modi due to the environment of "fear, hatred and violence" created by the Centre.

Meanwhile, BJP's Deputy Leader of Opposition in Rajasthan Assembly Rajendra Rathore hit out at Gehlot's recent remarks on surgical strikes.

"It seems the Chief Minister is talking like a spokesperson of Pakistan," he told reporters in Chittorgarh.
