Jaipur, April 26 (IANS) Rajasthan Chief Minister Bhajan Lal Sharma said on Thursday that people are ready to give a befitting reply to the Congress on issues like “corruption, paper leaks and its policy of appeasement”.

Chief Minister Sharma made the remarks reacting to the phone-tapping accusations made by Lokesh Sharma, the ex-OSD of former Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot, on Wednesday.

“The public knows everything about how they played politics. I want to tell you that the public will give a reply to their policies of corruption and appeasement. Even in paper leak cases, youths will give a strong reply to Congress,” the Chief Minister said, adding that “people trust our PM (Narendra) Modi, who is working to realise the dream of Viksit Bharat 2047.”

Addressing a press conference on Wednesday, Lokesh Sharma, the then OSD to Gehlot, held the ex-Chief Minister responsible for the “phone-tapping incident” which created a huge uproar during the political crisis in Rajasthan in 2020.

Lokesh Sharma alleged that Gehlot himself handed him a pen drive which carried three audio clips along with a piece of paper.

Lokesh Sharma said: “The clippings and papers given to me by Ashok Gehlot were shared with the media on his direction… I came to know about the content in the pen drive after the news was flashed.”

Accusing the senior Congress leader of using him as a ‘tool’ to keep his political career intact, he said, “Till now, I was saying that I received these audio clips and the paper via social media, but the reality is it was then Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot who gave them to me.”
