After an objectionable material against BJP’s Rajasthan chief ministerial candidate Vasundhara Raje found in earlier this month, same material now comes in form of a dirty CD. Raje’s dirty VCD’s has been also posted to mediapersons in Rajasthan now. BJP has lodged a complaint with the Cyber Crime Cell of Jaipur Police.

Earlier this month Jaipur Police had arrested a binder and a few persons for possessing copies of objectionable material against her. It abandoned the investigations when leads pointed to a Congress leader in Sikar. The same material has resurfaced in a VCD. This could have been prevented had the police investigated the earlier case properly.

The VCD carries doctored images and highly defamatory and objectionable personal attacks on Raje. The complaint lodged by one Kan Singh Rathore, an executive member of BJP’s legal cell, is under both the IT Act and the indecent representation of women law.

The Congress has often targeted Raje in this fashion during the past 10 years. Though most of its campaign in 2008 was to damage Raje’s image, they had kept away from it this time but seem to have fallen back on the Raje theme as the campaign draws to a close.

In contrast, the BJP’s media campaign has not targeted Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot at all. Its campaign is aimed to get votes by highlighting Raje and of late, Narendra Modi, Gujarat chief minister and the party’s PM nominee. So much so that the BJP campaign is near silent even on crucial issues of inflation and corruption.

Only Raje and Modi target both these issues such as corruption and inflation in their election speeches.

Many in BJP are upset over such a soft campaign and feel that BJP has missed a chance to demolish Gehlot’s image by highlighting corruption charges against him and his family members in a systematic campaign. Even the Gehlot government’s flop schemes or fake proposals haven’t been torn apart by the BJP’s campaign cell.

BJP has gone by referring to issues in general in contrast to more meticulous campaign by Congress which is based on specifics. However, the dirty CD appears to be the game of Congress and seems to be posted from Delhi. The visible shift to target Raje, the BJP says, is a sign of frustration in the Congress, which is anticipating defeat.

Gehlot too has in the past very frequently indulged in attacks against Raje to which she has responded by accusing him of demeaning women.

“I can’t reduce myself to their level,” she often says.

Even Shanti Dhariwal, a senior minister in the Gehlot cabinet, has quoted from Raje’s divorce papers in the state assembly. “We do not need to go dirty against Gehlot as Modi and Raje are fetching us the votes,” says a BJP leader defending the soft campaign.  “But it shows how low a losing leader in the Congress can stoop to.”
