Polling for 199 out of Rajasthan’s 200 seats will be held from 7 am to 6 pm today. The election in Sriganganagar’s Karanpur seat has been suspended because of the death of Congress candidate and incumbent MLA Gurmeet Singh Koonar.
The elections are being contested by 1,862 candidates and the total number of voters is 5.25 crore. Of these, 1.71 crore voters are between the ages of 18 and 30, and 22.61 lakh are new voters from the 18-19 age group.
Seven MPs, including Rajyavardhan Rathore, Diya Kumari, and Kirodi Lal Meena, have been fielded by the BJP for the Assembly elections. Some of the MPs – all of whom were named in the first list – are contesting seats which could have otherwise gone to Vasundhara Raje loyalists.
