Everyone knows in what form and at what level he has had relations with the BJP.
He said that even before the police action against the accused, BJP leaders called in the police station that he was their worker, so he should not be harassed. Without naming anyone, Gehlot said that BJP leaders should give their reply on these allegations and clarify the situation.
