Amid political turmoil in Rajasthan, there is talk of an atmosphere of fear in the BJP ahead of the coming Assembly session. As per the report of India Today, some MLAs have been shifted to Gujarat due to a fear of floor-crossing of MLAs in the Rajasthan BJP. The BJP considers it safe to send some MLAs to Gujarat.
There is a BJP government in Gujarat. A petition seeking six MLAs from the Bahujan Samaj Party to quit the party and join the Congress will be heard in the Rajasthan High Court on August 11. Sources in India say if the membership of these MLAs is canceled, the Congress may try to contact the BJP MLAs.
Earlier on Wednesday, former chief minister Vasundhara Raje was reported to have met senior party leaders in Delhi. However, his silence has been interpreted politically in many ways throughout this chapter.
According to the report, five BJP MLAs have been shifted from Udaipur to Gujarat, including Amrutlal Meena, Babulal Kharadi, Dharmanarayan Joshi, Phoolsinh Meena, and Pratap Gameti. However, senior BJP leader and Leader of Opposition Gulabchand Kataria was not shifted to Gujarat.
The Gujarat government has announced a new industrial policy. This was preceded by an industrial policy announced in 2015, which expired in December 2019, but was extended.
According to a report in the Economic Times, Vijay Rupani said efforts would be made to create jobs, help many sectors, adopt state-of-the-art technology and adopt Industrial 4.0 policy to increase productivity towards a self-reliant Gujarat.
According to the report, the industries will be divided into two categories, one core sector, and the other Sunrise Sector. These industries will be placed in two sectors, in which Gujarat has been a leader and those industries which have the potential for growth and will be included in the Sunrise sector.
The capital subsidy will help 12 percent of the total investment to set up manufacturing units in Gujarat for large industries. Apart from that, help will be given to make MSME industries able to compete globally.
