Congress trounces BJP in Rajasthan bypolls

Gehlot sees clean sweep for Cong in Rajasthan by-polls

Early updates demonstrate that the Congress is driving in Ajmer and Alwar and the BJP is ahead in Mandalgarh. For years elections in West Bengal have been between the TMC and the Communists, with Congress in third place.

After fighting eight bypolls seats in the past fours, Congress tally has reached 25 while BJP was reduced to 160 from 163 in the assembly. It's a prestige battle for Mr Pilot, who was the Ajmer member of Parliament before he lost the seat to the BJP as a Modi wave swept the state.

With the Congress today taking a decisive lead in bypolls to two Lok Sabha seats in Rajasthan and winning an assembly segment, senior leader Ashok Chavan has termed the development as the beginning of the party "revival".

Rajput Karni Sena chief Lokendra Singh Kalvi on Wednesday claimed that the ruling BJP government had lost in all three bypolls seats in Rajasthan as it had not banned Sanjay Leela Bhansali's "Padmaavat" in the state.

Rajasthan Pradesh Congress Committee (PCC) chief Sachin Pilot demanded Vasundhara Raje's resignation on moral ground after the defeat and said that the result was a mandate against her govt's policies.

Bye-elections in one assembly and two Lok Sabha seats were held in Rajasthan on Monday. Trinamool candidate Sunil Singh won Noapara Assembly constituency by a margin of 63,000 votes and TMC's Sajda Ahmed won Uluberia Lok Sabha Constituency by 4,74,510 votes. Public supported our Sangharsh & voted against BJP. In Mandalgarh, the party has fielded Vivek Dhakad. Hats off to the hard work put in by all Congress workers, leaders, volunteers and well wishers. Karan Singh (INC) - 226592 and Jaswant Yadav (BJP) -178304, Nota - 6173.

This act of seeking Pilot's aashirwaad sums up what the Congress has achieved through its 3-0 win in the elections to Alwar, Ajmer and Mandalgarh on Wednesday. Yadav had garnered 1,63,489 votes. Congress- 68585, BJP - 55583. It is worth pointing out that in Mandalgarh, the Congress pulled off a victory even after one of its former leaders, Gopal Malviya, contested as an independent.

The swing against the BJP is particularly huge in Alwar. Around the time dates for these by-polls were announced, the question on everybody's mind was who would lead the Congress against Vasundhara Raje. BJP candidate Sandip Banerjee got 38,711 votes while CPI-M's Gargi Chatterjee was at number three with 35,497 votes.
