In Rajasthan, while the BJP is willing to buck anti-incumbency and remain in power, an increasingly aggressive opposition is hoping to turn the tide and dethrone the saffron rule in the state.

The recent exit polls, held on December 7 after the polling in the state, have predicted a clear majority for the Congress in the state. As per Zee Maha Exit poll, the BJP is expected to win 80 seats while the Congress seems likely to bag 109 seats. Others would bag 9 seats.

Also, the recent pre-poll surveys have given the opposition a clear edge over the BJP in the poll-bound state, primarily due to the anti-incumbency factor. Also, the state has been voting both the parties to power alternatively since 1993.

Rajasthan went to polls along with four other states – Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Mizoram and Telangana. The results of all five states – which will be announced today – are expected to have a bearing on the 2019 Lok Sabha elections.
