Congress Rebels Who Won As Independents Hold The Trump Card In Rajasthan

Rajasthan elections: Rahul-Gandhi led party is likely to need support and a post-poll alliance.


Jaipur: 

Several rebel Congress candidates who won as Independents in the Rajasthan Assembly polls may help the party to form the next government in the desert state.

Though the Rahul Gandhi-led party is surging ahead, it may still need support and a post-poll alliance if it fails to win the mandatory 100 seats, to form the government.

As of now, Congress has won 86 seats and is leading on 13 seats, taking its probable tally to 99 out of the 199 seats which went to polls.
