Ahead of the visit, BJP office-bearers and workers led by state president C P Joshi picked up brooms and cleaned the bus stand to give the message of cleanliness.

Joshi said the Swachh Bharat Mission launched by Modi on October 2, 2014 has become a people’s movement, adding that it has now become the nature of people to pick up brooms to clean streets and create a healthy environment around them.

In April, Prime Minister Narendra Modi flagged off Rajasthan’s first Vande Bharat Express. PM Modi had said that the Vande Bharat Express will immensely benefit Rajasthan’s tourism industry.

During the launch via video-conferencing, the prime minister also took a jibe at Rajasthan chief minister Ashok Gehlot and his former deputy Sachin Pilot. “I thank Gehlot Ji, who took out time for developmental work and attended the railway programme, despite the political tensions he is going through,” Modi had said.

PM Modi’s remark came a day after Congress leader and state minister Sachin Pilot sat on a one-day hunger strike against the Gehlot government to press for “inaction against corruption”.

Hours after the prime minister’s address, Ashok Gehlot called his comments “unfortunate”. He said PM Modi’s speech was given keeping in mind the upcoming 2024 Lok Sabha elections.

“It was in the form of the BJP’s election agenda. I believe that such comments of yours will not be acceptable to the people of the state and the countrymen,” said Gehlot.

Gehlot also accused the prime minister of “trying to reduce the importance of the Railways” by abolishing the separate railway budget.
