Ashwini Vaishnav became cabinet minister in 2021
Vaishnav is considered close to PM Narendra Modi
The total share of Brahmins in the population of Rajasthan is about 7 to 7.5 percent.
Jaipur. Assembly elections are to be held in Rajasthan this year. For the assembly elections 2023, both the major political parties Congress and BJP are fighting for the projection of the next Chief Minister. Recently, in the Brahmin Mahapanchayat held in the capital Jaipur, a Union Minister has been projected as the next Chief Minister of Rajasthan. This is the name of Railway Minister Ashwini Vaishnav. Although it is a matter of fact that he comes from Jodhpur and another Union Minister Gajendra Singh Shekhawat of Jodhpur is also a veteran leader of BJP. This ‘projection’ of Union Minister Ashwini Vaishnav in Brahmin Mahapanchayat has its own political meaning and now new political equations are being formed.
Ashwini Vaishnav had attended the Brahmin Mahapanchayat as the chief guest. Vaishnav was included in the cabinet by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in 2021. His political career is also not that long but his short but effective speech given in Mahapanchayat exposed his political efficiency. He addressed this public meeting in the familiar style of PM Modi. During this, he also urged the people to address him not as ‘Sir’ or ‘Ashwiniji’ but as Ashwini Bhai. In the Brahmin Mahapanchayat, he also issued a postage stamp on Lord Parshuram.
The share of Brahmins in the population of Rajasthan is 7 to 7.5 percent.
It is noteworthy that the share of Brahmins in the population of Rajasthan is 7 to 7.5 percent. Most of the Chief Ministers of Rajasthan have also been coming from this community. However, it is a different matter that the last time the Chief Minister was made here 33 years ago from the Brahmin community. In Rajasthan, Muslims and Jats have more population than Brahmins. But so far only one Muslim has been able to reach the post of Chief Minister. At the same time, the Jat community is still waiting for the Jat Chief Minister. Out of the first four Chief Ministers of Rajasthan, three were Brahmins.

Vaishnav became Rajya Sabha MP from Odisha in 2019
Before being elected as Rajya Sabha MP from Odisha in July 2019, Ashwini Vaishnav has taken up many big responsibilities as a bureaucrat (IAS officer). He has also been the private secretary of former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee in 2004. However, it is not easy to project Ashwini Vaishnav as the next Chief Minister.
