Rajasthan Elections 2019

Rajasthan will go to polls for Lok Sabha in two phases. People of the state will vote to elect 25 MPs in the fourth and fifth phases of the Lok Sabha elections on April 29 (13 seats) and May 6 (12 seats). The counting of the votes will be done on May 23.

The key election issues in Rajasthan are agrarian crisis, rural unemployment, Gujjar issue and other problems. For the past several decades, both BJP and Congress have captured the power. In 1999 Lok Sabha Elections, BJP had won 16 whereas Congress had won nine. In 2004 Lok Sabha, the trend was opposite with BJP winning 21 seats in Rajasthan and Congress winning four. In 2009 Lok Sabha Elections, Congress won 20, while BJP won just one seat. But the fortune turned for BJP, when it was able get around 25 seats in 2014. Unfortunately, Congress won the state assembly elections in 2018. It will be hard for the BJP to garner seats, which it had gained in the 2014 Lok Sabha election. As 4.74 crore registered voters will be casting their votes in Rajasthan, it remains to be seen whether the anti-incumbency wave in assembly election that cost the BJP will have an impact on the upcoming Lok Sabha elections. One should also consider the importance of female voters, since the polling percentage of female voters was higher (74.66) as compared to male voters (73.80) during the last assembly election.
