The Rajasthan BJP appears to be a divided house of late, with a group of people fancying their chances to lead the state as CM in place of two time chief minister Vasundhara Raje if the party comes to power in the state, even as her supporters maintain that she remains a powerful figure in the state.
The ‘anti-Raje’ group has been trying to keep her out from the saffron party’s mainstream affairs. She has also been sidelined by the present executive of the party’s state unit headed by president Satish Poonia.
Vasundhara Raje has not been politically active of late, but she commands the confidence and respect of at least 45 of the 71 party’s MLAs which include a number of her former Cabinet colleagues and senior party leaders like Kailash Meghwal, Kali Charan Saraf, Pratap Singh Singhvi and Yunus Khan.
