Ashok Gehlot slams Rajasthan govt for closing country's first scout school, calls it 'politics of vengeance'

Jaipur: Congress leader Ashok Gehlot on Saturday alleged that the BJP government in Rajasthan is indulging in politics of vengance by cancelling the national jamboree of the Bharat Scouts and Guides in the state.

Rajasthan was given responsibility to hold the national jamboree and the then Congress government led by Gehlot had allocated Rs 10 crore for it.

Gehlot said in a statement that the current BJP government in the state has shut down the country's first scout school which was announced by him in 2013 when he was the chief minister.

"Now, the students are being given TC which has disappointed them and their parents. The BJP government has murdered the initiative right after its birth," Gehlot alleged.
