Jaipur, Nov 03: The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has announced its fourth list of candidates for the upcoming Rajasthan assembly elections, revealing its continued efforts to field strong contenders in the state. This list includes two candidates who will be vying for seats in the state assembly.
- Ram Niwas Meena: He has been nominated to represent the Todabhim (ST) constituency. Meena’s selection highlights the BJP’s commitment to representing diverse communities in the state, given that this constituency is reserved for Scheduled Tribes.
- Swaroop Singh Khara: Khara will be contesting from the Sheo constituency, another move demonstrating the party’s strategy to secure a strong presence in the state.
In a previous list, the BJP had nominated 58 candidates, including former MLA Ajit Singh Mehta. Mehta is set to compete against Congress leader and sitting MLA Sachin Pilot in the Tonk constituency. The rivalry between the two parties in Tonk has a history, with Pilot defeating BJP’s Yunus Khan, a former minister in the Vasundhara Raje cabinet, during the 2018 state assembly elections.
The BJP’s selection of Shankar Lal Sharma to contest the Dausa constituency is another significant move. The constituency is currently held by Congress’s Murali Lal Meena. In the 2018 elections, Sharma lost to Meena by 48,056 votes. By fielding Sharma again, the BJP aims to regain the seat in a keenly contested battle.
The upcoming assembly elections in Rajasthan are highly anticipated, and both the BJP and the Congress are leaving no stone unturned in their candidate selections to secure victory. The election results will be crucial in determining the political landscape of the state, and it will be interesting to see how the electorate responds to the candidates put forward by both major parties.
The BJP is working on a comprehensive strategy for the elections, making calculated choices in its candidate selection, while the Congress is also actively announcing its candidates to compete for the 200 assembly seats. With the polls scheduled for November 25, the political atmosphere in Rajasthan is sure to intensify in the coming weeks.
