The Congress, accused of resorting to soft Hindutva to counter the BJP in the Rajasthan assembly elections, fielded more than a dozen Muslim candidates in the state. And the gamble paid off, at least to some extent. Seven of 15 Muslim candidates fielded by the party won, while the BJP's sole minority pick -- Yoonus Khan -- was defeated by Congress heavyweight Sachin Pilot by a margin of 54,179 votes in Tonk. Mr Khan had been brought in at the last moment at former Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje's insistence.
