Kota - During a press conference organized by the Kota Rural Congress at the Circuit House, Congress leaders targeted the BJP government, criticizing its handling of law and order, power cuts, rising crimes against women, and inadequate water supply for farmers. The leaders issued a 10-day ultimatum to the state government to address these issues, threatening a massive protest if their demands were not met.

Patana MLA C.L. Premi criticized the unannounced power cuts in both urban and rural areas. He called for immediate improvements in the availability of transformers and electricity connections to prevent difficulties for farmers during the upcoming Kharif season.

Failing Electricity Infrastructure
Hindoli MLA Ashok Chandna discussed the severe electricity problems throughout the summer, causing significant discomfort to residents.

Moizuddin Guddu, President of the Youth Congress, echoed these sentiments, criticizing the government's discontinuation of Congress-initiated schemes.

The Congress leaders warned that if the issues of electricity, water supply, women's safety, law and order, and irrigation were not addressed within 10 days, they would mobilize a large-scale protest across the region.
