 Rajasthan CM Ashok Gehlot claimed he would not have become the chief minister of Rajasthan if the voting was on the basis caste, as he is the lone MLA from his community.

The multi-term chief minister was speaking at the first convocation ceremony of Dr Bhimrao Ambedkar Law University at Birla Auditorium here.

"I became the chief minister for a third time. I could not have become the chief minister on the basis of the caste...I am the only MLA from my caste.

"If people of '36 qaum' did not love me and the people of the state did not trust me, I would not have been in a position to stand in front of you and say this," Gehlot said.

The chief minister also said if the common has an understanding of the Constitution’s preamble, fundamental duties and the basic elements of Constitution, many problems of the country including class discrimination will end automatically.

He also said if the basic spirit of the Constitution is followed, issues like politics in the name of religion will end.
