Claim: Ashok Gehlot has allotted Rs. 100 crores in the budget for the development of a Dargah.

Fact: Rajasthan government in the 2021-22 budget allocated Rs.100 crores for developing a religious circuit by connecting places of worship of Sikhs, Jains, Hindus, and Muslims in order to develop ‘Sarva Dharma Sama Bhava’. Hence the claim made in the post is MISLEADING.

In the 2021-22 budget, the Rajasthan government has allocated Rs. 100 crores for development of religious tourist circuit connecting places of worship of Sikhs, Jains, Hindus, and Muslims in order to develop ‘Sarva Dharma Sama Bhava’.

The budget document further mentions the different religious places which fall under the ambit of this initiative of the religious tourism circuit. Among the list of places, ‘Tanha peer dargah’ which falls in the Mandore-Jodhpur track is also a part. Also, the Rs. 100 crores allocated to this initiative will be spent for developing connectivity and other areas concerning the places of worship of the four religions. From this, it is evident Rajasthan government’s allocation of Rs. 100 crores for developing a religious circuit by connecting religious places of four different religions is misconstrued as the government allocating Rs. 100 crores just to develop a dargah.

To sum it up, the Rajasthan government has allocated Rs. 100 crores to develop a religious circuit of four different religions, but not just a dargah.
