Rajasthan chief minister Ashok Gehlot addressing a public meeting after the launch of solar power plants in Phalodi recently, used the platform to lash out at Modi, according to a Times of India report.

Earlier in the day, Gehlot while interacting with the media in Udaipur said Modi was known to make such speeches and always portrayed Gujarat as the best state. “However, from the feedback we have received, all in Gujarat is not how Modi portrays it to be,” Gehlot said.

Addressing the public meeting at Rewara, Gehlot said the Gujarat chief minister, who was visiting the state a couple of days ago, had said a lot of things. “The neighbouring state has just started producing 150 MW of solar power but because the production began before Rajasthan, they are taking credit. Rajasthan will soon overtake them and would be way ahead,” Gehlot said.

He added, “Not all investors are happy in Gujarat. There are quite a few conflicts with the investors, however, Modi did not even make a mention of that.” The occasion was inaugural of the three private solar plants of 5 MW each in Jodhpur district. Gehlot further said, “Currently the production of solar energy in the state is 80 MW but it will soon increase by manifold. The state is on its way to become a major solar power hub in the country.”

“This is just a beginning and we have acquired 10,000 hectares land across Jodhpur, Jaisalmer, Barmer and Bikaner districts for setting up solar energy parks.

Union minister for new and renewable energy Faooq Abdullah, who was present at the PBD, said Rajasthan in future will provide power to the entire nation. “Chief minister Ashok Gehlot’s name would be written in golden letters for his contribution towards the sector. He has successfully tapped the immense opportunity of solar power production in the state, for which the Centre assures its complete support,” he said.
