Rajasthan, Telangana go to polls today

Jaipur/Hyderabad, Dec 6 (IANS) | Publish Date: 12/6/2018 11:28:00 AM IST

Rajasthan and Telangana will go to the polls on Friday in a high-stakes battle, the results of which along with those in three other states can be a pointer to which way the wind is blowing ahead of next year’s general elections.

The BJP and the Congress are locked in a tough fight in Rajasthan, which has not voted the same party to power for more than one term in the last 20 years, while in Telangana the ruling TRS is facing a resurgent Congress-led People’s Front in its bid for a second term.

The contest is largely bipolar between the BJP and Congress for the 200-member Rajasthan Assembly but is expected to be triangular, especially in some seats, for the 119-member Telangana assembly where the Congress has tied up with unlikely rival TDP, CPI and Telangana Jana Samithi (TJS), a new party floated by M. Kodandaram, who was once Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao’s friend in the Telangana movement.

The campaign in both the states has been bitter with personalized attacks by leaders of various parties. 

In Rajasthan, the BJP is fighting anti-incumbency to retain power. 

While over 4.74 crore people are eligible to vote in Rajasthan, there are over 2.80 crore voters in Telangana.
