Jaipur: Senior BJP leader in Rajasthan Ghanshyam Tiwari on Monday responded to the notice served to him by the party’s disciplinary committee. In his reply to committee president Ganeshi Lal, he said that people would never surrender before a ‘corrupt’ government. Tiwari has made his stand clear by official declaring his intentions against the Vasundhara Raje government. “Rajasthan will script a new history,” Tiwari said. The disciplinary committee had served notice to Tiwari for his alleged ‘anti-party’ activities last week. BJP can now take a disciplinary action against the senior leader who has been at loggerheads with Rajasthan chief minister Vasundhara Raje ever since she was projected as CM candidate during the previous assembly elections. In his response, Tiwari mentioned the alleged attack on him by a worker at a BJP training camp. “The notice (by the disciplinary committee) has not been served only on me, but also on every honest and hardworking worker in the state. This worker feels that his voice is being stifled,” said Tiwari. Tiwari said that many organizations including VHP, RSS and Bajrang Dal had addressed their grievances against the current government, but nobody was listening. Tiwari said that he was not attending meetings and events organized by the party because he feared for his life. “There had been attacks on my life. The government has withdrawn security that was being provided to me and my family. I informed the union home minster, Rajasthan assembly Speaker and the governor about this, but nothing happened,” Tiwari said. Tiwari further said that he should have been given a chance to explain himself in person. “Before sending the notice, you should have called me and asked what the problem was. I could have explained,” Tiwari said. Under the banner of his organisation 'Deendayal Vahini', Tiwari has been touring the state and gathering support against the government.
