After the by-elections and general elections in Bihar and recent greater elections, BJP and Congress fought in Panchayath Samithi elections in Rajasthan. This is unlike the other elections because Rajasthan is a place where BJP and Congress both are strong and the fight was neck to neck. The BJP has won 1,011 Panchayat Samiti seats while the Congress bagged 1,000 seats out of 4,371 seats a few hours after the counting of votes began in 21 districts of Rajasthan on Tuesday. As many as 287 independent candidates and 48 Rashtriya Loktantrik Party (RLP) candidates have also won the Panchayat Samiti member seats. In the Zila Parishad election, which was held simultaneously, the ruling Congress in the state has won 10 seats, whereas the BJP got three seats of the total 636. “The counting of votes to elect the members of Panchayat Samitis and Zila Parishads is still underway,” a state election commission spokesperson said.
