The Rajasthan government is trying to attract cheap publicity by organising inflation relief camps in the last year of its rule before the implementation of the Model Code of Conduct, Leader of Opposition Rajendra Rathore said on Sunday.

The Congress, in its assembly election manifesto in 2018, had promised to take necessary and effective measures to control inflation but took the step after running the government for four-and-a-half years, he said.

Assembly elections in Rajasthan are scheduled to be held later this year.

Addressing a press conference, Rathore said, "The state government is trying to get cheap publicity by organising inflation relief camps in the last year of its rule and before the (implementation of the) Model Code of Conduct."

Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot will inaugurate the inflation relief camps, to be organised from April 24 to June 30, to provide relief from rising prices, officials said on Sunday.

Without naming anyone, Rathore also said that the government should have first worked to bring relief from infighting before talking relieving people. 

Corruption is prevalent under the government's patronage, he added. 

Citing the Transparency International Survey - 2021 report, Rathore alleged that 67 per cent of the people who dealt with the state government had to pay bribes.
