In Closely-Matched Rajasthan Contest, Why Pendulum May Swing Towards Congress in Phase 4
Even before the Assembly elections, billed as the semi-final, were held in Rajasthan in December last year, Congress was seen as having the edge for Lok Sabha election after being blanked out five years ago.
Now that three phases of the election are over, the BJP seems to be banking entirely on Modi charisma as it wrestles to take back the initiative and acquire as many seats as possible. The contest, even-matched, will be decided by fine margins.
Heading into the fourth phase, in which polling would be held on 13 of the state’s 25 states, the momentum seems to have shifted towards the grand old party.
Of the 13 seats where voting will take place, four - Jodhpur, Barmer, Jalore and Udaipur – are where key battles will take place.
