Rajasthan Assembly Election: These Parties Can Become New Headache For Congress-BJP, Owaisi Also Active After Kejriwal & Beniwal, RLP Eyes Jat Vote Bank

Jaipur: Assembly elections are to be held in desert state of Rajasthan at the end of the year. By the way, there has been a struggle for power between the Congress and the BJP in Rajasthan. But this time the flags and banners of other parties are also waving in the state. 

It is believed that this time four parties will be seen standing along with BJP and Congress. Both the parties may have to face trouble, because these are the parties which also have their own vote bank in certain areas. But Rashtriya Loktantrik Party (RLP), All India Majlis-e-Ittehad-ul-Muslimeen (AIMIM), Aam Aadmi Party AAP and Bharatiya Tribal Party BTP may cut into the votes of main parties Congress and BJP.

AAP eyes Rajasthan after Delhi-Punjab

Aam Aadmi Party is looking active this time regarding the assembly elections of Hindi speaking states. Party convener and Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal has become active since the Gujarat assembly elections. Along with Rajasthan, AAP also eyes Chhattisgarh and Madhya Pradesh.

In Rajasthan, AAP has started making inroads in middle class, educated and poor class. AAP is enumerating the schemes of his governments of Delhi and Punjab. AAP has given free electricity in the state. Claims and promises are being made for effective implementation of schemes related to schools and hospitals. Aam Aadmi Party is working hard especially on the assembly constituencies adjacent to Punjab, Haryana, Delhi and Gujarat. 

Recently, on March 13, AAP convenor and Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal and Punjab CM Bhagwant Mann had shown the party’s strength in Jaipur. A Tiranga Yatra was also taken out from Sanganeri Gate to Ajmeri Gate in Jaipur.

RLP eyes Jat vote bank

The strength of Rashtriya Loktantrik Party (RLP) is Jat vote bank. This party also has a hold on Jat dominated seats. The convener of this party is Hanuman Beniwal who is also the Lok Sabha MP from Nagaur. He has also been an MLA for three consecutive terms. Hanuman Beniwal's RLP can become the biggest challenge for BJP and Congress. Beniwal has also claimed that RLP will come first or second in the assembly elections this time. 

In fact, the RLP which came into existence four years ago has now emerged as a challenge for the BJP and the Congress. The core strength of RLP is considered to be the Jat vote bank. RLP currently has over 100 panchayat samiti members, including three MLAs and one MP. In the 9 by-elections held in the last four years, RLP has secured an average of 30 to 35 thousand votes. In such a situation, RLP can become a challenge for BJP and Congress in the assembly and subsequent Lok Sabha elections.

Owaisi a new challenge 

Asaduddin Owaisi, the convener of All India Majlis-E-Ittehadul Muslimeen, is currently the Lok Sabha MP from Hyderabad. Recently, Owaisi had advised former Rajasthan deputy CM and Congress youth leader Sachin Pilot to leave Tonk seat and contest from a Gujjar-dominated seat. Not only this, Owaisi has also undertaken a political tour of Tonk, Bharatpur and Jodhpur to make an election strategy. In Tonk itself, he attacked Sachin Pilot and CM Ashok Gehlot in Jodhpur. It is believed that the strength of AIMIM is the Muslim vote bank. 

There are about 35 assembly seats in Rajasthan where the Muslim community has a significant influence. Asaduddin Owaisi had reached Jodhpur recently. Where he went to the locality of CM Ashok Gehlot and did public relations. And targeted the Gehlot government of Rajasthan. Also said that they have not come here to defeat anyone but to win.

Pilot's reply to Owaisi

During the election meeting in Rajasthan, Asaduddin Owaisi had advised Pilot to change the seat. Sachin Pilot took this statement seriously and replied by saying that four years have passed. Owaisi did not think about Tonk, now that the elections are round the corner, both he and Prime Minister Narendra Modi have started thinking about Sawai Madhopur, Dausa and Tonk.
