Rajasthan Exit Poll 2023: The PollStrat exit poll projected an advantage for the BJP with estimates of 100-110 seats, followed by the Congress with 90-100 seats, and others securing 5-15 seats.

Conversely, the CNX exit poll predicted 94-104 seats for the Congress, 80-90 seats for the BJP, and 14-18 seats for others.

And as per Axis MyIndia, the BJP is anticipated to secure 80-100 seats, the Congress 86-106 seats, and others may claim 9-18 seats.

Rajasthan witnessed a slightly elevated voter turnout of 75.45 percent this year, surpassing the figures from the 2018 assembly polls.

The BJP is banking on the state’s historical trend of opting for an alternate government every five years, while the Congress is optimistic about retaining control, led by Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot.

The BJP aims to capitalize on anti-incumbency sentiments and internal conflicts within the Congress, whereas Gehlot is campaigning for re-election based on welfare initiatives such as the Chiranjeevi Scheme and reduced LPG cylinder prices. Notably, the BJP has nominated several MPs without disclosing its chief ministerial contenders.

Smaller parties like Asaduddin Owaisi’s AIMIM and the Aam Aadmi Party are also contesting the elections.

A total of 1,875 candidates, including 183 women, are vying for the 199 assembly seats. The BJP has anchored its campaign on Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s credibility, anticipating victory, while the Congress is aiming to break away from the established trend.

Sachin Pilot remains steadfast in his pursuit of the Chief Minister’s position, while Gehlot has expressed interest in continuing as the CM if the party secures a win.
