Rajasthan campaign trail: Amit Shah to hold roadshow in Bikaner on 21 Nov

The ruling party has released two lists so far of 162 candidates for the polls to be held on 7 December for 200 assembly constituencies

Bikaner: BJP president Amit Shah will hold a roadshow here on 21 November in support of candidates fielded by the party in the upcoming Rajasthan Assembly polls, a party functionary said Friday.

BJP district president Dr Satyaprakash Acharya said route of the roadshow will be decided in consultation with the candidates and party workers.

The ruling party has released two lists so far of 162 candidates for the polls to be held on 7 December for 200 assembly constituencies. Names of more candidates are expected to be announced soon.

The BJP had released its first list of 131 candidates on 11 November, while the second list of 31 candidates was announced on 14 November.

The results of the Rajasthan Assembly election in 2013, along with several other electoral battles, had at the time provided a clear indication that the UPA government at the Centre was on its way out. Not only had the Bharatiya Janata Party ousted the Congress, but had done so with a historic majority in the north-western State.

In 2018, when the State votes again for a new Assembly the results will be seen as a popularity test for the NDA government in New Delhi.

Since 1998, Rajasthan has alternated between the Congress and the BJP holding the reins of power, due to which the former would fancy its chances.

However, this time, the Modi factor and the BJP’s overwhelming presence in most of the country may disrupt the trend of the revolving door. Even in 2013, Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje had attributed her party’s unprecedented win to Narendra Modi-at a time when he was yet to become the prime minister. This time around, the role of Modi will be even more important.
