Rajasthan Election Results: Stage Set For Counting

Banking on the Ashok Gehlot dispensation's welfare measures in Rajasthan, will the Congress today buck the trend of the state not repeating a government in the past three decades? In the last six assembly elections, the state voted the BJP and the Congress to power alternately.

While most pollsters have predicted an edge for the BJP in Rajasthan, three exit polls in their upper limit forecast a Congress win in the assembly polls held on November 25.

With varying predictions, nothing is being left to chance. The Congress as well as the BJP have started reaching out to Independent candidates, including rebels, and even smaller outfits in case there is a split verdict.
