The Rajasthan High Court has asked for expenditure details from the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in the ‘Rajasthan Gaurav Yatra’. The court has sought details from the party in a detailed affidavit regarding the cost sheet till August 20. The bench of Chief Justice Pradeep Nandrajog and Justice GR Moolchandani passed this order while hearing Vibhuti Bhushan’s PIL.

The petitioner stated that BJP is saying that the Rajasthan CM’s Gaurav Yatra is a party event but are not disclosing the expenses.

It is a misuse of government funds, the petitioner said.
