Will Rajasthan Vote for BJP or Will Cong Make a Comeback?
The election for the 200-member Rajasthan Assembly, scheduled to be held on Friday, 7 December, is largely being seen as a bipolar contest between the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the Congress.
The campaigning for the state ended on Wednesday, 5 December, with Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Congress President Rahul Gandhi making one last concerted attempt to win the contest for their parties.
During the 2013 elections, the BJP had won 163 seats, while the Congress bagged 21.
