Mission accomplished, Vasundhara grabs all 25

Jaipur:

TEAM TOI

The Times of India May 17 2014

Rajasthan 2014

BJP in Rajasthan accomplished its “Mission-25”.

This is only the second time that a party has won all the 25 seats in the state with the first one being a Congres clean sweep in 1984.

After winning 163 seats in the assembly polls, CM Vasundhara Raje had coined the “Mission-25” slogan. As BJP had won only four seats in 2009, a gain of 21 seats from the state has contributed substantially to the party’s overall tally. Five union ministers including Sachin Pilot (Ajmer), Chandresh Kumari (Jodhpur), Jitendra Singh (Alwar), Girija Vyas (Chittorgarh) and Namonarain Meena (Dausa) faced embarrassing defeat.

Besides, senior Congres leader, CP Joshi, who shifted to Jaipur-rural from his current seat Bhilwara, lost to Rajyavardhan Rathore, winner of silver medal in Olympics. Cricketer Mohd Azharuddin lost to BJP's Sukhbir Singh Jaunpuria. BJP rebel and in dependent candidate from Barmer, Jaswant Singh, lost to Congres turncoat Sonaram Choudhary .

2019

BJP wins

Saffron desert storm dents Gehlot’s image, May 24, 2019: The Times of India

Constituencies won by the main political parties in Rajasthan in the Lok Sabha elections of 2014 and 2019.
From: May 24, 2019: The Times of India


The people of Rajasthan have lived up to the slogan they coined months before the state polls in December — “Modi tujhse bair nahi, Vasundhara teri khair nahi (nothing against Modi, won’t spare Vasundhara)”. The state that brought in a Congress government barely six months ago, has now given a clean sweep to BJP in the Lok Sabha elections.

BJP’s victory has been stellar as its candidates in 21 seats (barring Tonk-Sawai Madhopur, Karauli and Dausa) have won by a margin of over 2 lakh votes. The highest margin was recorded in Bhilwara (6,12,000), while the lowest was in Dausa (78,444).

By voting out BJP in the assembly polls but giving all 25 Lok Sabha seats to the party and its ally Rashtriya Loktantrik Party (RLP’s Hanuman Beniwal won the Nagaur seat) the people have shown their rejection for former chief minister Vasundhara Raje and reliance in Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The support for BJP reinforces the argument that the party lost the December 2018 state polls because of Raje’s unpopularity.

The verdict has demolished the political stature of another top leader from the state — chief minister Ashok Gehlot. Known as the magician of politics, Gehlot acquired national recognition by reviving Congress in Gujarat and Karnataka in 2017-18 assembly polls. The party’s rout in Lok Sabha polls for the second time in a row (this time despite Congress being in power), has, however, dented Gehlot’s image.

Gehlot’s son Vaibhav has lost to Union minister Gajendra Singh Shekhawat in his home turf Jodhpur. Shekhawat’s victory would further curtail Raje’s rise, who had blocked his elevation as the BJP state president citing caste.

Since 2004, Rajasthan has been voting for the state’s ruling dispensation in the parliamentary elections. The trend has been rejected this time.
