Results of the Rajasthan Assembly elections, where national parties contested, will be announced soon. Congress has fielded 26 leaders. Last time, all major leaders won from their constituencies. Zahida Khan won from Kaman with 58% votes, 80,089 more votes than BJP’s Jawahar Singh. Shale Mohammed won from Pokhran, defeating BJP’s Pratappuri by only 872 votes.
In which areas can victory be repeated in these elections?
Congress has a stronghold in Rajasthan’s assembly seats, with impressive previous election performances from their candidates. However, the non-change of candidates on certain seats can make predicting the outcome of the election challenging. They are once again competing with the candidates who contested last time on the seats of Dausa, Bansur, Sikrai, Bharatpur, Nimbahera, Deeg-Kumher, Pokhran, Kota North, Lalsot, and Khajuwala.
On which seats will the ministers compete with the candidates fielded in the old elections?
Murari Lal Meena contested from Dausa this time too. In Bansur, Shakuntala Rawat competed again, this time against BJP’s Devi Singh Shekhawat, who fought as an independent candidate last time. Mamta Bhupesh had last defeated BJP’s Vikram Bansiwal in Sikrai. Subhash Garg had defeated BJP’s Vijay Bansal from the Bharatpur Legislative Assembly. Minister Uday Lal Anjana from Nimbahera is contesting this time also from BJP candidate Srichand Kripalani. MLA and Minister Vishvendra Singh is contesting against Shailesh Singh from the Deeg-Kumher seat. This time also in front of Shale Mohammad in Pokhran is BJP’s Pratappuri, who was defeated by the Congress leader by a very narrow margin. Vijay Pratap won with only 872 votes by a margin of 0.5%. That is why this time the contest for this seat will also be a close contest. Shanti Dhariwal had defeated BJP’s Prahlad Gunjal from Kota North. Since both the candidates are strong in this seat, it is a bit difficult to say who will benefit between Congress and BJP. Congress’s Prasadi Lal Meena and BJP’s Ram Bilas are again contesting from Lalsot. In Khajuwala, Meghwals have been fielded together. Govind Ram Meghwal and BJP’s Vishwanath Meghwal are contesting from this constituency.
