CM Ashok Gehlot was in Jaipur for inaugurating the Law College Students' Union office of Rajasthan University on Tuesday.
Addressing the program, the CM said, "Paper leaks happen, in which the government is defamed, but such a game is going on across the country. There are many states where paper leak incidents happen. I feel very sad. We have made a strict law in Rajasthan and sent the accused to jail but this is a big disease and Rajasthan government is taking strict action against paper leak mafias."
The Chief Minister said that we have given 3 to 3.5 lakh jobs in Rajasthan, in which 1.5 lakh people have been given government jobs. One lakh jobs are under process while 1 lakh more jobs have been announced by me.
