Vasundhara Raje to contest from home-turf Jhalrapatan

“I have a 30-year-old connection with the people of Jhalawar. The people here have showered love and affection. I have done whatever I could do for Jhalawar and Baran districts,” she said.
Raje has been elected thrice from the Jhalrapatan seat — in 2003, 2008 and 2013.

Welcome to the LIVE blog for the 2018 Rajasthan Assembly Elections. This blog will track the poll campaign in the state.
Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje-led Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government is seeking to retain power. Reports and opinion polls suggest there exists very high anti-incumbency sentiment against the Raje government.
The state has swung between BJP and the Indian National Congress in the last two decades.
Congress, led by former chief minister Ashok Gehlot and former union minister Sachin Pilot is aiming to wrest power from the BJP in the state. Congress is banking on the anti-incumbency factor and caste equations in the elections.
