On Wednesday, Gandhi will address a ‘Sankalp Rally’ in Rajasthan’s Bikaner city. Pilot said the party president will rest in Mahua and will take part in two different events in Jaipur on Wednesday.

Polling in Rajasthan will be held on December 7. Counting of votes will be taken up on December 11.

Two opinion polls have predicted that the Congress is likely to unseat the BJP from power in Rajasthan – a continuation of the state’s tradition of over two decades of voting out the ruling party.

Surveys carried out by ABP News-CVoter and C fore have given the Congress almost 50 per cent of the vote share and 142 and 124-138 seats respectively in the 200-member Rajasthan Assembly, with its state president Sachin Pilot leading Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje as the most preferred candidate for the top post.
