He was given the portfolio as the minister of state for Panchayati Raj and Rural Development.

“I won elections from the BSP but became a minister in the Congress government. I will leave Congress when it will time for it to fold its carpet, asking them to take care of their party,” Gudha was heard saying in Hindi his purported video.

“First I got the ticket from the Behanji and won as a BSP MLA. And then became a minister in the Congress government. Is there something wrong with my game?” he was heard asking his audience.

Earlier, Gudha had stoked another controversy by allegedly saying that the roads of his village should be made as smooth as the cheeks of Bollywood actor Katrina Kaif and not Hema Malini who has now grown old.

Following his remarks, Chief Minister Gehlot said no one should talk in an undignified manner.
