Gehlot’s Waiver

India Today - - GLASS HOUSE -

Ra­jasthan Chief Min­is­ter Ashok Gehlot, who has been plead­ing with the pub­lic to vote for him in lieu of his free­bies, has made an ex­cep­tion for his pet pro­ject Jaipur Metro. When he launched the pro­ject in 2010, he hoped it would be a vote- catcher if he could start it well be­fore Assem­bly elec­tions in De­cem­ber 2013. But on Au­gust 25, when Gehlot vis­ited the Metro sites, he saw the graf­fiti on the wall. With the pro­ject much be­hind sched­ule, he now says: “Not ev­ery work should be linked to elec­tions.”
