Chief minister Raje was also present.Saini filed his nomination with Kalicharan Saraf, Vasudev Devnani, Gajendra Singh, Ashok Parnami and Kamini Jindal, among others. Saini went to meet the chief minister at her official residence in the morning before filing the nomination.Keeping up his style, Kirodilal Meena reached the assembly with a huge rally of supporters. There was cheering and sloganeering as a few hundred went up to the assembly and several thousand waited outside. After filing his nomination, Kirodi went out on foot towards his supporters.Vasundhara Raje also reached the Jyoti Nagar T-point where Kirodi’s supporters were gathered and addressed them. Raje said, “My brother Kirodi and I will work shoulder to shoulder to take on the Congress. We will ensure a win for Narendra Modi government at the Cente and our government in Rajasthan.” She thanked Meena’s supporters saying, “You have united me with my brother.” Speaking on the occasion, Meena said, “I have joined the party without any preconditions. I will work to the best of my capabilities to fulfill all responsibilities given to me. I have worked for a third front, but realised that there is no scope for it in Rajasthan.””I am a swayamsevak of the Sangh from 1952 and have worked in different capacities for the party. I feel I have not been selected because of my caste. I have been selected as a cadre worker,” said Saini.Yadav said, “During my first tenure I worked to the best of my ability not just in the RS, but also for the organisation in various states. It has been a learning experience and I hope to continue my work for the party with commitment.”The three candidates handed over their nomination papers to election officer Akhil Arora. The forms will be scrutinized and on being found correct results will be declared.
