Gehlot attacked BJP?

CM Ashok Gehlot once again attacked the central government and BJP regarding misuse of central agencies and election funding. Gehlot said- Apart from BJP, no party is getting funding. Even if an industrialist comes to meet us, people from the Income Tax (IT) Department and ED reach his house in the evening. We are working in this environment. This time I would appeal to the public to give us a chance. BJP has no dearth of resources. Electoral bonds have been issued. 95 percent of their money comes to them only.
