Jaipur: Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje on Friday said that efforts are being made to establish a petroleum refinery in the state soon.

After dedicating the Kota-Jobner multi-product pipeline and the Jobner installation of Bharat Petroleum to the nation near Jaipur, she addressed her speech about the setup of a refinery.

The state has become one of the biggest on-land oil and gas producing region in the country and now to get the full benefit of its resources, the state is making efforts to set up petroleum refinery soon.

An ultra-modern petroleum product storage and distribution installation located in village Asalpur in Jaipur district, the Jobner installation is built in an area of 95.75 acres at an investment of Rs.145 crore.

The pipeline, built at an investment of Rs.276 crore, is expected to ensure uninterrupted supply of petroleum products at Jaipur and the nearby markets.

Raje also urged Union Petroleum and Natural Gas Minister Dharmendra Pradhan, who was the chief guest, to ensure supply of domestic gas through the pipeline in the cities selected to be developed as smart cities. Pradhan assured supplies would be made to Jaipur, Ajmer, Kota, and Udaipur.

Union Minister of State for Information and Broadcasting Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore and Rajasthan’s Urban Housing and Development Minister Rajpal Singh Shekhawat were also present in the occasion.

Rahul Gandhi Hints Rajasthan CM Issue Sorted

In a sign that the leadership question in Rajasthan has been settled, Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Friday posted his photograph with Ashok Gehlot and Sachin Pilot, both contenders for the Chief Minister’s post, as party sources hinted that Gehlot could be the party’s choice for the top post.

The photograph of the smiling leaders had a caption “United Colours of Rajasthan!”, without giving any hint as to who will be the Chief Minister. An official announcement is expected in the evening.

Gandhi’s tweet capped hectic consultations with Gehlot, who appears set to return as Chief Minister in Rajasthan, and state Congress chief Sachin Pilot, who put up his claim strongly.

Gehlot, a two-time Chief Minister, and Pilot reached Gandhi’s residence within minutes of each other on Friday. A decision is expected to be announced on Friday.

Ahead of the meeting, Gehlot took a veiled dig at Pilot saying that the party unit had already left the decision on Gandhi and it was not the time to express individual choices.

“We have given the duty to the High Command. Let it decide who is to be given what responsibility. If I say my choice is this, it is not time for that. The time is to strengthen the Congress, see how its graph goes up.

“If Congress is strong, everyone will be empowered and we prove to be useful in meeting the objectives of the 2019 elections. This alone should be our thinking,” Gehlot said.

He said a resolution had been passed by newly elected MLAs in Rajasthan authorising the High Command to take a decision.

“Whether it is Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh or Chhattisgarh, once a resolution is passed, the decision of the Congress President should be acceptable to all. This is what our workres, MLAs and people expect,” he said.

He said winning elections in the three Hindi heartland states was a big achievement and that it all started with a strong performance of the Congress in Gujarat under Gandhi’s leadership.

“(Prime Minister Narendra) Modi and (BJP President) Amit Shah have lost their aura. They have not been able to recover due to which we won elections in the three states,” he said.

Gehlot had played an active role in formulating the party’s campaign strategy in Gujarat.

Both Pilot and Gehlot had separate meetings with Gandhi on Thursday.

The meetings came hours after the leadership issue was settled in Madhya Pradesh, with Gandhi tweeting his picture with Kamal Nath and Jyotiraditya Scindia, who were both chief ministerial aspirants.

The picture — akin to the one on Friday — carried the line “The two most powerful warriors are patience and time – Leo Tolstoy.”

Party sources said Rahul Gandhi was keen to give a similar message for Rajasthan as well.

Both in Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh, the Congress missed the majority mark by two seats and is now dependent on external legislative support.

Pilot, who stayed put in Delhi on Thursday, appealed to party workers to maintain peace and that he would welcome any decision taken by the party.

Pilot reportedly has put up a strong claim to the post on the ground that he had galvanised the party after the defeat in 2013, when he was appointed the state party chief. (IANS)
