Rajasthan by-election: In an impressive performance eight months ahead of assembly elections in the state, Congress has won all two Lok Sabha seats and an assembly constituency in Rajasthan, defeating BJP candidates in each of them.

In Ajmer, Congress’ Raghu Sharma defeated BJP candidate Ram Swaroop Lamba. In Mangalgarh, Congress candidate Vivek Dhakad won by defeating BJP candidate, by nearly 13,000 votes.

After the 11th round of counting, 41-year-old Dhakad surged ahead of BJP candidate Shakti Singh Hada, who was leading in initial trends, and emerged as the winner.
