Pathania lauded Congress win in Rajasthan

Pathania lauded Congress win in Rajasthan

In several ways, many BJP leaders of the state saw the bypolls as an election that was contested not by the party as a whole but the elected representatives.

Congress candidates led from the beginning in vote count in both the Lok Sabha seats and edged past the BJP in Mandalgarh after initially trailing. In both the Lok Sabha seat of Uluberia and the Assembly constituency of Noapara in West Bengal, the BJP pushed the once-formidable Left Front to third position and the Congress virtually out of the electoral frame. All three seats were won by BJP in 2013 and 2014 with over 50% of the votes.

Polls to the three seats were necessitated after the deaths of their incumbent representatives.

Will the results trigger a rethink on simultaneous polls? "This is a rejection of the BJP by the people of Rajasthan", Gandhi wrote on Twitter. Ragu Sharma (INC) 144992, BJP's Ram Swaroop Lamba -120736, Nota- 2187. In Alwar, Karan Singh Yadav of the Congress defeated Jaswant Singh Yadav of the BJP. Nasirabad - BJP ahead of 1904 votes.

While the Congress steered clear of defending free speech, the BJP failed to rein in the Rajput Karni Sena, the fringe group that has led a violent agitation against the movie. While Dhakar polled a total of 70,146 votes, Hada managed only 57,170. It has been clear for some time now that there is a significant anti-incumbency against Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje. "Young people have realised that the politics of polarisation doesn't work". Since 2014, the BJP has lost six by-polls out of eight and has suffered huge losses in elections to panchayats and municipalities. Gehlot is a far more confident man today than a year ago when he was unsure about his prospects in Congress if Sachin Pilot took charge in the state. For years elections in West Bengal have been between the TMC and the Communists, with Congress in third place.

This was an indication of a massive win for Congress in 2019 polls. According to reports, BJP got zero votes in Adarwa, a Jat dominated polling booth in Dudu Assembly segment of Ajmer. Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee's Trinamool Congress is leading in both the seats.

Much was at stake for the BJP this bypoll, mainly because it was being held so close to the forthcoming assembly and the ruling party was keen to spread around the word that everything is at its best in the party. It had strategised raising the tally of seats to 180 in the assembly polls due this year end.
