In Rajasthan Assembly Elections, Congress took an early lead against the state-ruling BJP struggles to keep up as votes were counted for December 7 elections in the state. Rajasthan looks all-set to preserve its old tradition of voting out against the ruling party.
Celebrations of victory broke out early in Congress as it has established a lead in the desert state, as predicted by several exit polls.
Voting in Rajasthan took place in 199-seats out of the 200-seats in assembly constituencies- as a candidate died in one seat.
Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje, the first lady to take the top position in Rajasthan, is looking forward for another term after two-times against all odds. CM Raje is seeking re-election from Jhalrapatan Assembly seats, where Congress has fielded BJP leader Jaswant Singh’s son Manvendra Singh.
Among top candidates of Congress are ex-Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot in Sardarpura and Rajasthan Congress President Sachin Pilot from Tonk.
