Udaipur With more than 4.84 crore voters, Rajasthan is a significant state for political parties from the electoral perspective.At present, BJP represents all 25 parliamentary constituencies within the state, a streak the saffron party would like to maintain in the upcoming 2019 LokSabha polls. The state is set to vote in the fourth and fifth phases of the seven-phase general election on 29 April (13 constituencies) and 6 May (12 constituencies).There are 200 Assembly constituencies in the state. In the 2018 Assembly elections in Rajasthan, the anti-incumbency wave helped the Congress dethrone the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) with 100 seats.
The saffron party won 73 seats, Bahujan Samaj Party six seats Independents won 13 seats while the remaining eight seats were won by Rashtriya Loktantrik Party (RLP), RashtriyaLok Dal (RLD), CPM and Bharatiya Tribal Party (BTP).
While the main contenders in the state are BJP and Congress, smaller parties such as the BTP and BSP are likely to only play spoilsport and create a dent in certain pockets of the state. Caste also plays a crucial role in determining election results in the state. It remains to be seen if the anti-incumbency wave of the Assembly election will have an impact on the LokSabha elections in the state.
