This year in Lok Sabha elections, the BJP has reiterated the victory of 2014 in Rajasthan. In the elections of 2014, the BJP had won all the 25 Lok Sabha seats in the state. The ruling Congress in the state could not even open its account. Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot himself does not get his son Vaibhav Gehlot elected from the Lok Sabha elections despite his best efforts. This is the third opportunity in the state when Congress could not win a single seat.
