Gehlot’s gaffe: Rajasthan CM reads out old Budget excerpts, sparks bedlam | India News

JAIPUR: CM Rajasthan Ashok Ghelot accidentally read excerpts from last year’s State Budget during a meeting for a few minutes on Friday before the unprecedented mess was brought to his attention, turning what was supposed to be an introduction to the show. His offering of “Bachat, Rahat, Badhat” became an occasion for the BJP to question whether he was fit to rule the state.
Chaos caused by Gehlot’s indiscretions, which former CM Vasundhara Raje announced an eight-minute delay, which resulted in two pauses in the House of Commons, 30 and 15 minutes each, and an overall delay of an hour and a half in the Budget process. Amid allegations that the State Budget for 2023-24 was “leaked”, CM apologized for what he said was “human error” and continued his speech, this time as from the correct document.
Gehlot didn’t realize he was reading old Budget proposals until the head of Parliament whipped Mahesh Joshi, who had apparently been tipped off by one of CM’s OSDs, interrupted him. Until then, no one else in the House seems to know that the CM’s talk of increasing working days under the rural job guarantee scheme as part of pandemic relief is a highlight of Budget 2022- 23.
This revelation immediately brought the opposing benches to life, replacing the hitherto silent skepticism about Gehlot’s Final Budget.
