Sehwag runs out political party trying to fix him in politics

RLP was formed in October this year by Hanuman Beniwal, a former BJP MLA.

Cricketer Virendra Sehwag today exposed the lies of a political party of Rajasthan called Rashtriya Loktantrik Party (RLP) on Twitter. In an advertisement published in a local newspaper, the newly found political party had claimed that cricketer Virendra Sehwag will be addressing a Vishal Kisan Sammelan to be organised by the Party in support of their candidate Mansukh Gurjar who is contesting from Aseend-Hurda Assembly Constituency.

Dismissing the advertisement as a lie, Sehwag posted on Twitter:

The RLP was formed┬áby former BJP leader and independent legislator from Khinvsar Assembly seat Hanuman Beniwal to fight the ‘corruption’ of the ruling party. He had launched his party in October this year.

The Wikipedia page of RLP gives some interesting information about Beniwal and his party. It says that the party was “made known to public” on Oct 29,2018, and that Beniwal is known to have such “command” in his constituency Khinvsar that his mobile number is “verbally” known to all children. It does not stop at that, the page further reads that Beniwal has “holded” 5 rallies at Nagaur, Barmer, Bikaner, Sikar and Jaipur and around 5-6 lakh people turned up in each rally.

RLP’s election symbol is ‘Bottle’. Sehwag’s Tweet did not register well with some supporters of Beniwal. They criticised him for calling out the lie and praised their leader.

Beniwal claims that RLP in alliance with “like-minded” parties will emerge as an alternative to the BJP and the Congress. He has formed an alliance with the Bharat Vahini Party of Ghanshyam Tiwari who is also a former BJP leader. Beniwal has claimed that his party will lead the third front in Rajasthan.
