Rajasthan Elections

Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje faces what is probably the toughest political battle as Rajasthan goes to polls in a single phase on December 7, 2018. The fate of the Bharatiya Janata Party and the Congress will rest in the hands of a total of 4,74,79,402 (2,47,60,755 men and 2,27,18,647 women) voters who will be eligible to exercise their franchise rights to elect a new leader in 200 assembly constituencies. In 2013, the saffron party had won 163 seats while Congress secured 21 seats only. Mayawati’s BSP was successful in securing 3 seats. The main tussle will be between opposition Congress and ruling BJP. Meanwhile, the Arvind Kejriwal-led Aam Aadmi Party has also thrown its hat in the ring and will be contesting from all seats. The result will be declared on December 11, 2018.
