Danger looms over the new districts formed during Gehlot’s rule, Bhajanlal government may cancel them

Jaipur : Chief Minister Bhajanlal Sharma has approved the formation of a committee of former Indian Administrative Service officer Lalit K. Panwar to review 19 new districts. In such a situation, it is believed that the Bhajanlal government can cancel a dozen districts. Because there are some new districts, which do not fit the scale in terms of demarcation and population. Now the clouds of crisis are looming over such new districts. The newly formed Panwar Committee will submit a report to the Cabinet Sub-Committee constituted under the leadership of Deputy Chief Minister Premchand Bairwa for review of 19 districts and three divisions. The previous government had formed a total of 19 districts including the division of Jaipur and Jodhpur districts last year, which increased the total number of districts in the state to 50. Apart from this, the process of formation of three more new districts was started, on which the current state government replied in the Assembly that due to the dissolution of Ramlubhaya Committee, no further action will be taken on the 3 districts under process.
