RAS Exam Controversy

There were accusations made against Govind Singh Dotasra after his three relatives, all received the same marks in the Rajasthan Administrative Service (RAS) exam. The RAS exam is conducted by the Rajasthan Public Service Commission and is aimed at recruiting candidates for state and subordinate services in Rajasthan. Specifically, Govind’s daughter-in-law, her brother, and her sister all scored 80 out of 100 during the interview round, while some top performers in the RAS written exam only received marginal scores.

the examination for selection to RAS is conducted in a transparent manner and only capable candidates succeed in it.” [3]Times Of India


Controversy on recalling male teachers aged below 50 years from all government girls’ schools

In order to prevent harassment of girls in schools, Govind Singh Dotasra decided to recall male teachers who are below the age of 50 from all government girls’ schools. This move was criticized by experts as “regressive” and “immature”. Dotasra had stated that the priority will now be given to female teachers in all-girls schools, and male teachers above the age of 50 will only be deployed if necessary. One of the critics of this decision was Rashmi Jain, the head of the Department of Sociology at Rajasthan University. In an interview she said,

Is the minister saying that harassment cases happen only in girls schools? I feel this is an attempt to create a new cardre of schools which will be run only by females.” [4]Times Now

Controversy surrounding sexist comments

In 2021, Dotasra sparked controversy by saying schools with more female staff see more quarrels. The incident took place at an event meant to celebrate International Girl Child Day in Jaipur. Addressing the event, he said the Rajasthan government always ensured the security and comfort of women and gave them preferred postings in jobs. He added,

Govt introduced policy for women. They’re given priority. But female staff have conflicts among themselves. Where there’s female staff, either the Principal or teachers take ‘Saridon’. If you correct these small things [mistakes], you will always find yourselves ahead of men.”

Controversy over remark on Maharana Pratap

Govind Singh Dotasra landed in controversy over his remark on Mewar warrior Maharana Pratap. Addressing party workers at a district-level training camp in Nagaur he said,

In school syllabus, BJP portrayed the war between Maharana Pratap and Akbar as a religious war between Hindus and Muslims. It was a power struggle. They see everything through the Hindu-Muslim prism.” [5]
