Underlining his track record of fulfilling promises, the Rajasthan chief minister stated that the promise by senior Congress leader Rahul Gandhi to waive off loans of farmers was fulfilled in due time.

Ashok Gehlot’s five guarantees are in addition to two guarantees: cooking gas cylinders at ₹500 for 1.05 crore families and an annual honorarium of ₹10,000 to the woman head of a family in installments. The aforesaid two announcements were made by him at Priyanka Gandhi Vadra’s public rally in Jhunjhunu on Wednesday.
