Rajasthan – BJP lost all the three seats to Congress in the byelections in Rajasthan on Thursday. This is an alarming situation for the Vasundhara Raje government, which faces assembly elections in 10 months.
However, Congress lost one assembly seat in West Bengal to the ruling Trinamool Congress, which also emphatically retained the Uluberia Lok Sabha seat.
In Rajasthan, Congress recorded comfortable victories in both Ajmer and Alwar Lok Sabha seats. It had lost the two seats to BJP by huge margins during the 2014 Modi wave.
Congress also won back the Mandalgarh assembly seat which it had lost in 2013 when Raje rode to power with a three-fourths majority in the state.
