Demand from Kshatriyas – Change of Candidate Instead of Rupala

After the meeting, it was announced by Bhupendrasingh Chudasama that today we had a meeting with the core committee. Kshatriya warriors were present. Talks were held with the core committee. Rupala asked for forgiveness within 30 minutes. Mafi was sought for Gondal, even the state president apologized. We have presented the matter to the core committee. Everyone has apologized. The only demand from everyone is to change the candidate instead of Rupala. Today, Kshatriya warriors came to discuss Rupala’s apology. We do not accept it; that’s what the core committee said. We will request the party. Whatever discussion took place in the meeting will be presented in the party. No decision was made in today’s meeting. BJP leaders have only one demand before them, to change Rupala’s ticket on Rajkot seat.

Discussion on Women’s Dignity

Tripthiba Raoal announced that we accept democracy, but today’s politics has degraded to a lower level. Today’s leaders have stooped low in politics. Today, we have made all demands and discussed the dignity of our Women. Padmavati, who came down the road at the time of the incident, the incidents like that should not happen, so the coordination committee is working. The request made by Rupala is also supported by BJP. Questions are now raised on mother and sisters. If the Ramrajya comes again, the situation of sisters and daughters will not be in Ramrajya.

No Two Opinions in Society

Padminibaa Vala stated that this fight is about the honor of the Kshatriya society and the respect of sisters and daughters. There are no two opinions in society. Whatever decision will be made, it will be taken in front of sisters and daughters. We have only one demand that the ticket of Purushottam Rupala should be canceled.

Appeal for Forgiveness Made by Chudasama

Karansinh Chavda announced that Bhupendrasingh Chudasama had appealed to us. Bhupendrasingh Chudasama had appealed to us to forgive, this society believes in forgiveness. Forgiveness is sought even in the past. We are appealing to them to forgive, we believe that the opinion of the society should be changed. The candidate Purushottam Rupala should be given forgiveness. The appeal made by Purushottam Rupala should be accepted. Opposition to the Kshatriya society will continue until their candidacy is not revoked.

Opposition Won’t Withdraw Until Candidate’s Withdrawal

The head of the Rajput community’s core committee, Karansinh Chavda, stated that BJP candidates had come to seek support for the upcoming elections. It was mentioned that the community’s support was sought by the government and the BJP. Today, a meeting was held. All Rajput organizations had submitted requests. We heard from the BJP. We made only one request that the withdrawal of the Rajkot Lok Sabha candidate and Minister Purushottam Rupala’s Rajkot candidacy be withdrawn. Until his candidacy is not withdrawn, there will be opposition from the Kshatriya community.

BJP Hike: How Important are Rajputs?

Karansinh emphasized that this was the final meeting. No more meetings were scheduled. There are 75 lakh Rajputs in Gujarat and 22 crore in the country. Let BJP leadership know that for you, Rupala is important, but for Rajput society, Rajputs are important. Tell all sisters not to fill any pages like Jauhar. This battle is the battlefield. Now it’s not just Rajkot, but it will spread across Gujarat. This movement is only in front of Purushottam Rupala. If Rupala’s ticket is not withdrawn, there will be an impact on the 26 seats. Our 400 brothers and sisters will contest from Rajkot. It will start from Rajkot now. Posters, banners, protests, etc., will be part of the strategy.

Rupala Submits Controversial Statement on March 23

Purushottam Rupala submitted a controversial statement regarding the Kshatriya community’s demand at a public event of the Valmiki community held last Tuesday. In the public event on March 23, he said that when the British were in India, they were oppressive, and the kings engaged in exploitation, but my Rajput community did not change their religion or their behavior. Even Ram came because of them after 1000 years. They never bowed their swords. Neither did they bow out of fear nor out of hunger. This is the heritage of the eternal religion, which I am proud of.

Rupala Releases Apology Video Amidst Controversy

Following the controversy, Purushottam Rupala released an apology video, where he mentioned that he had spoken at a public event of the Valmiki community in Rajkot. The video went viral, and the Kshatriya community expressed anger. In the video, prominent figures of the Kshatriya community, including Bhupendrasinh Chudasama, Rajya Sabha MP Kesari Dev Singhji – Vankaner State, Rajkot’s Rajvi Mahendrasinh Jadeja, and others have expressed their views. They have expressed their dissatisfaction with the Kshatriya society and Rajvi family. They said that they had expressed their displeasure. Therefore, I sincerely apologize to the Kshatriya society or the Rajvi family for any anger. Therefore, I request that this matter be fully resolved here.

Rupala Apologizes with Folded Hands, “I Seek Forgiveness”

Purushottam Rupala, who arrived at the Kshatriya community meeting in Shemaliya village last Friday, once again apologized, saying, “I apologize again before I start my conversation.” I feel the same way I express. I also feel the resentment that has spread in the Kshatriya society due to a statement made by me for one request. Therefore, I express my feelings before I express myself. I had a conversation with Jayrajsinhbhai, who sometimes welcomes me with drums and trumpets when I go to the election assembly. No one except the Kshatriyas can do this. It is not possible otherwise. It’s a big honor for me that this sentence came out of my mouth. There is no record of such a request in my entire life.
