Senior Congress leader Ashok Gehlot, who will be taking oath as chief minister of Rajasthan on Monday, said outgoing chief minister Vasundhara Raje was “careless” in fulfilling people’s expectations despite a huge mandate in the last elections. Holding Raje responsible for the financial condition of the state, Gehlot said she could have done more work if she wanted. “What is the financial condition of the state is known by all. The BJP got a huge mandate in the last elections and people had expectations from Raje, but she was careless and passed five years in carelessness,” Gehlot told reporters at Albert hall in Jaipur where he reviewed the preparations for the oath-taking ceremony to be held on Monday.
