Rajasthan Assembly Election Live Updates 2023: The BJP is making a big push to unseat the Congress in an attempt to break the state’s anti-incumbency trend, with polls for the 199 assembly seats in Rajasthan opening on Saturday morning. Kailash Chaudhary, the Union Minister of State, was one of the first people to exercise his right to vote in Balotra. There are 200 assembly seats in Rajasthan, however only 199 will be used for voting as the election in the Sriganganagar district’s Karanpur seat was postponed due to the passing of Congress candidate Gurmeet Singh Koonar. There are 199 assembly seats with 5,25,38,105 voters.In the 200-member legislature, Rajasthani voters have never chosen the same party to form a majority in back-to-back elections.
That might be a depressing statistic for the Ashok Gehlot-led administration, which is now in power. Gehlot is the chief minister of the Indian National Congress. But it was exacerbated by another scandal. A paper leak in a government teacher recruitment exam has become a source of embarrassment for the ruling administration in a state beset by a high unemployment rate (4.4% for the 12-month period ending June 2023). The opposition Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has attempted to use the situation to its advantage by portraying the paper leak case—which is purportedly connected to politics—as the Gehlot administration’s most notable example of corruption.
