Will Quit As Minister If BJP…: Rajasthan MP Kirodi Lal Meena

With the BJP leading 14 out of 25 seats, including Dausa in Rajasthan, state cabinet minister Kirodi Lal Meena suggested on Tuesday that he would keep his promise from the day before to resign if the party lost any of the seven seats under his charge.

He shared a verse from the Ramcharitmanas on the social networking site X, saying,  “Raghukul Reeti Sada Chali Aai, Pran Jaai Par Bachan Na Jaai”.

He stated on Monday that the Prime Minister had given him a list of seven seats in eastern Rajasthan, on which he worked hard. “Before the PM came to Dausa, I had said that if the (Dausa) seat is not won, I will leave the post of minister. Later, the PM spoke to me separately and gave me a list of 7 seats. I worked hard on 11 seats, more on 7. If the party loses even one seat out of those 7, I will leave the post of minister.”

Meena, the minister of agriculture, rural development, disaster management and relief, campaigned in the districts of Tonk-Sawaimadhopur, Kota-Bundi, Dausa, Bharatpur, Dholpur, Karauli and Alwar in eastern Rajasthan.

Bikaner, Jaipur Rural, Jaipur, Alwar, Ajmer, Pali, Jodhpur, Jalore, Udaipur, Chittorgarh, Rajsamand, Bhilwara, Kota and Jhalawar-Baran are all where the BJP leads.
