Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot on Monday hit back at Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s remark of ‘Rewari culture’, saying that welfare schemes for the people cannot be called free. Referring to the weekly payments made to the poor and elderly in developed countries, he said that it is the responsibility of the government to implement the welfare schemes.

Addressing a gathering at the state flag hoisting ceremony at Sawai Man Singh Stadium on the occasion of 76th Independence Day, Gehlot said, “It is the responsibility of the government to implement public welfare schemes.”

“There has been talk about revdi (freebie) culture but I don’t consider it as such. These are public welfare schemes, pension is being given to one crore people in Rajasthan. Prime Minister Narendra Modi In his recent statements he had warned people against Revdi culture and said that it can be very dangerous for the development of the country.

Modi had used ‘rewari’ to woo voters by some parties promising free gifts and said people, especially the youth, should avoid it. The Center had also suggested the Supreme Court to constitute an 11-member committee to look into the issue.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, in his Independence Day speech in the national capital on Monday, also said that free education and healthcare are not “free ki rewari” and that access to both can end the country’s poverty in a generation. There the BJP has been accusing Kejriwal of using the freebies to come to power and endanger the financial health of the states.

In the backdrop of the case of a Dalit boy being allegedly lynched by a school teacher, Gehlot also talked about discrimination against Dalits and tribal communities. Gehlot said, “Those who talk about religion should also see the discrimination being done against Dalits and Adivasis.”

He said that Pakistan is an example for those who want to build a country in the name of religion. He said, ‘I want to tell those thinking of nation building in the name of religion that Pakistan is an example. Democracy was murdered and Pakistan was divided into parts. You can understand if Pakistan can be divided into two parts on the basis of language.

He said that the basic spirit of the Indian Constitution has kept it united for 75 years in spite of people speaking different languages ​​and having faith in different religions. “Those who talk about religion, I hope they will focus on how inequality and untouchability can be abolished.

The Chief Minister said that the country is moving ahead and hoped that people of all religions and castes live in harmony and peace. He said that the government at the Center and the states should adopt ‘tolerance’, which is the spirit of democracy.

“Opposition should not be treated as an enemy as it is against democratic traditions. Governments are formed and run on the basis of ideology. We hope that this tradition will be carried forward. If anyone makes a mistake, we will rectify it for the welfare of the country. Gehlot said that youth are the powerhouses of the country and they have a big role to play but they need to channelize their energies in the right direction.

“I see it on social media, there is frenzy among the youth. This neither benefits the country nor the youth. Youth is being divided on the basis of caste and religion. They should stay away from it.” The Chief Minister also referred to the Prime Minister’s Independence Day speech in which he said that the Center would work for expansion of health services in the country.

Gehlot said that the state government has implemented a universal health scheme and it is a state where free treatment and medicines are being provided.
