A slew of welfare schemes introduced by the Ashok Gehlot government in the run-up to the November 25 assembly polls fell flat before the aggressive BJP campaign, led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Earlier during the day and hours before the results were largely in, Ashok Gehlot conceded defeat on social media.

"We humbly accept the mandate given by the people of Rajasthan. This is an unexpected result for everyone. This defeat shows that we were not completely successful in taking our plans, laws and innovations to the public," the outgoing CM said on X.

He later submitted his resignation to Governor Kalraj Mishra. The Rajasthan Assembly has 200 seats, but the contest on one was postponed due to the death of a candidate.

Smaller parties picked up a handful of seats in what was essentially a two-party contest.
