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

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

Hours after the Prime Minister’s address, Ashok Gehlot called his comments “unfortunate”. He said that PM Modi’s speech was given keeping in mind the upcoming 2024 Lok Sabha elections.
“It was in the form of BJP’s election agenda. I am sure that such remarks of yours will not be acceptable to the people of the state and the countrymen.

Gehlot also accused the prime minister of “trying to reduce the importance of the railways” by scrapping a separate railway budget.
