JAIPUR: In a dramatic turn of events, BJP takes a decisive lead in Rajasthan, poised to form the government. Current trends indicate BJP’s dominance with over 114 seats, leaving the incumbent Congress trailing at 70.

 

Ashok Gehlot and Sachin Pilot lead in Sardarpura and Tonk seats, while former CM Vasundhara Raje commands Jhalrapatan. The evolving political landscape signals a potential power shift, emphasizing BJP’s stronghold in the state. This closely contested battle unfolds as most exit polls had predicted a BJP advantage, yet Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot remained optimistic about his party’s eventual victory.

 

The BJP is also asserting its dominance in Madhya Pradesh, and in Chhattisgarh, the gap between the BJP and Congress remains narrow. Meanwhile, Telangana witnesses the Congress consolidating its lead against K Chandrashekar Rao’s BRS.

 

In Rajasthan, BSP and RLD are leading in 2 and 1 seat each, as per the Election Commission. With 1862 candidates in the fray for 199 seats, the political landscape is poised for a significant shift.

 

According to PTI, speaking on the unfolding scenario, BJP candidate Prahlad Gunjal from Kota north expressed confidence in his party’s prospects of forming the government. He deferred the decision on the Chief Minister, stating it would be determined by the party high command, emphasizing the presence of stalwart leaders like Vasundhara Raje.

 

Rajasthan BJP chief CP Joshi attributed the BJP’s momentum to what he termed as Ashok Gehlot’s misgovernance and injustice. He asserted that the public would bless the BJP with a complete majority, signaling a preference for good governance and justice.

 

As the counting unfolds, Rajasthan becomes the focal point of a high-stakes political drama, where every seat counts and the future of governance hangs in the balance. Stay tuned for real-time updates as the electoral landscape continues to evolve.
