Security beefed up ahead of Manmohan Singh's rally in Jaipur

Jaipur, Nov 21 : The security personnel have made tight security arrangements for Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh's rally in Jaipur today.

According to reports, Dr. Singh will address a rally in Jaipur's Ramlila Ground at around 4 pm.

Earlier, addressing a rally in Bikaner, Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi accused the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) of dividing the people of this country on the basis on region, religion and caste to win the upcoming elections.

"Congress says that we have to get everyone together for India to progress. Opposition says we have to divide India. Divide Hindus and Muslims, divide rich and poor, this is their thought process," he said.

He further ridiculed the BJP's tall claims of development, and said that leaders of the saffron outfit are experts in marketing.

"The BJP claims that they made a lot of roads during NDA's rule. But when I checked the statistics, I found that UPA built three times more roads than NDA. We have done more infrastructure work than the BJP. But they are very good with their talks. They give good speeches. BJP leaders are experts in marketing," he said.

"The opposition wants roads and airports should be developed, we also think so. We say that infrastructure should always be built but people who build them should also be helped,' he added.

He also lauded Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot for providing jobs to poor and given free medicines and medical test facilities to all.

"We have given medicines at a highly subsidized rate to the poor," he added.
Rajasthan, which is currently governed by Congress Government, votes for a new assembly on December 1. The counting of votes will take place on December 8.
