BJP Caught in Controversy Over Misuse of Farmer’s Photo in Rajasthan Election 2023 Campaign

In the run-up to the 2023 Rajasthan election, the BJP has launched the “Rajasthan Will Not Tolerate” campaign. However, this campaign has come under scrutiny as a few days ago, a poster targeting the Congress and featuring farmers was released. Now, the BJP itself finds itself in hot water over this poster. The poster, which read, “More than 19,000 farmers’ lands auctioned, Rajasthan will not tolerate,” included a photograph of a farmer. But the twist in the tale is that the farmer in question claims his photo was used without his consent.

The farmer in question is Madhuram Jayapal, a 70-year-old resident of Rikhio in Jaisalmer. According to him, he had no idea that his photo was being used on the BJP’s banner. He came to know about it when a villager from his hometown informed him that his photo was being used on posters in Jaipur. Madhuram alleges that his 200 bighas of land were neither auctioned nor had he incurred any debts. He asserts his ownership over the land. Consequently, he has raised concerns about defamation by the BJP and is contemplating legal action.

Raghudan Jhiva, the Congress spokesperson, has seized the opportunity to target the BJP over this matter. He alleges that the BJP has resorted to false claims and manipulated visuals in an attempt to defame the Congress party.

Madhuram’s story first came to light on September 23 when he visited Jaipur. During his visit, he saw his photo on banners and immediately shared this discovery in a WhatsApp group. This revelation led to the photo being circulated widely, raising questions about the BJP’s use of the image. Madhuram’s son also voiced concerns, requesting the BJP to remove his father’s photo.

Madhuram Jayapal is the father of three sons: Bhuraram, Govindaram, and Jugataram. While the elder two live separately with their families, Jugataram stays with his father. Jugataram has appealed to the BJP, expressing concern for his father’s well-being and requesting the immediate removal of his photo from the campaign materials.

This controversy has put the BJP in a difficult position as they now face allegations of using misleading visuals in their election campaign. As the Rajasthan elections draw closer, this incident has garnered significant attention, with political opponents capitalizing on the situation. The BJP will need to address these allegations and clarify the use of the farmer’s photo to maintain their credibility in the upcoming elections.
