Rajasthan Lok Sabha result

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) approached towards a clean sweep in Rajasthan and the increasing vote margins on many crucial seats prove the slogan "Modi tujhse bair nahin", which once echoed in 2018 in Jhunjhunu.

Six months after the Assembly elections, voters have proved their slogan right by making the BJP win with record margins.

Former BJP President Ashok Parnami said the party would have won the Assembly elections too had the Congress not made fake promises to farmers and unemployed youths about farm loan waivers and unemployment allowance.

"The Congress lied to farmers that their loans will be waived. Also they trapped unemployed youths by promising them unemployment allowance of Rs 3,500, which is yet to be released. Hence, these two sections had voted for the Congress," he told the media.

Parnami was removed from the post after the BJP lost the by-elections in Alwar, Ajmer and Mandalgarh in February 2018.
