Kirori Lal Meena resigned on June 5.

There is an uproar from Delhi to Jaipur regarding the resignation of minister Kirori Lal Meena in the Rajasthan government. Even after 35 days, the Bhajanlal government has not accepted Meena’s resignation. That too when Meena is neither going to the Secretariat nor to the Assembly for the last one month. Not only this, Meena has also refused to withdraw her resignation. In such a situation, the question is why Bhajanlal’s government is not accepting Meena’s resignation?

Why and when did Kirorilal Meena resign?

While talking to reporters, Kirori Lal Meena said that I resigned on June 5, the day after the results of the Lok Sabha elections. After 20 days, I met Chief Minister Bhajanlal Sharma, but he refused to accept the resignation.

According to Kirori Lal, I sent my resignation through e-mail on June 25 as the resignation was not accepted by the Chief Minister. As to why Kirori resigned, two reasons are being given in political circles, one official and the other unofficial.

1. According to Kirori Lal, he took the responsibility of winning 7 seats including Dausa and Tonk in the Lok Sabha elections, but BJP could win only 3 seats here. BJP lost badly in Dausa, a stronghold of Kirori. Taking responsibility for this, Meena has resigned. He made this announcement before the election.

2. There is another angle to Kirori’s resignation. Accordingly, after winning the assembly elections, his supporters hoped that he would get the post of CM or Deputy CM, but Kirori was only given the status of a cabinet minister. Departments like agriculture were also given, which are not included among the top departments in Rajasthan.

Why is BJP not accepting Kirori’s resignation?

In 2007, when Kirori Lal Meena resigned, it took less than 7 days to accept it, but this time, even after 35 days, the BJP government has not accepted her resignation. In such a situation, the question arises that what is the reason why BJP is not able to accept Meena’s resignation?

1. By-elections proposed on 5 seats, of which 2 are dominated.

After the Lok Sabha elections, 5 assembly seats have fallen vacant, where by-elections will be held after a few months. The constituencies for which by-elections are proposed include Dausa, Jhunjhunu, Chaurasi, Khinwsar and Deoli-Uniyara. 2 of these seats are dominated by Meena, Dausa and Deoli-Uniyara.

Both these seats are influenced by Kirori Lal Meena. After the crushing defeat in the Lok Sabha elections, the BJP is trying to make a comeback through the by-elections. In such a situation, the BJP government does not want to give a walkover to the Congress by accepting Meena’s resignation before the by-elections.

This is the reason why the fame of Kirori Lal Meena continues from Delhi to Jaipur.

2. Kirori voice, the government’s troubles may increase

Kirori Lal Meena is considered an outspoken politician in Rajasthan. Recently, during his stay in the government, he created a stir in the government by writing two letters related to the department. It is being said that if his resignation is accepted, Bhajanlal may further discredit the government in the coming days.

During Meena Gehlot’s government, they surrounded the Chief Minister’s residence throughout the night. Meena was seen fighting on the streets the most in the entire government.

Meena is also very strong politically. In 2013, when he contested as a new party, his party won 4 seats in Rajasthan. 11 candidates from Meena stood second.

Meena’s party got more than 13 lakh votes in the 2013 elections. In about 100 seats, party candidates got votes ranging from 5 thousand to 65 thousand.

3. Government has no face, opposition is very strong

This is the first time that there is no strong face in the BJP government in Rajasthan. Last time when Vasundhara Raje’s government was formed, veteran leaders like Gulabchand Kataria, Rajendra Rathore were the problem solvers of the government in the assembly, but this time there is no firebrand experienced face except Kirori.

On the other hand, Congress has veteran leaders like Ashok Gehlot, Sachin Pilot, Harish Chaudhary, Govind Dotasara, Shanti Dhariwal in the House. In such a situation, if Kirori is out of the government, the government’s difficulties may increase on many issues in the future.
