The Congress has once again reposed its faith in Mirdha against Hanuman Beniwal who has considerable clout in the Jat community. In 2018, Beniwal organized five Kisan Maha Rallies in Nagaur, Barmer, Bikaner, Sikar and Jaipur. It was reported that over 8 lakh supporters were part of his Kisaan Hunkar Maharally in Jaipur. He also founded Rashtriya Loktantrik Party which won three assembly seats in 2018.
Beniwal’s association with the saffron party is a decade old. The saffron party first fielded him in 2008 and he defeated his nearest contender by 24,000 votes. However, the BJP suspended him in 2013. Beniwal then decided to contest as an independent and defeated the BJP candidate by over 23,000 votes. In the last state election, Beniwal again won from Khinvsar assembly seat.
Nagaur parliamentary seat has eight assembly segments: Ladnun, Deedwana, Jayal, Nagaur, Khinvsar, Makrana, Parbatsar and Nawan. In 2018, six of these seats went to the Congress, while the BJP won only two — Nagaur and Makrana. Nagaur has traditionally been with the Congress as it has won this seat 12 times ever since it came into being in 1957. The BJP won from here only three times — 1997, 2004, 2014.
