Rajasthan Elections 2018: Public Opinion Ground Report



The Universal Post’s Ground Report before the Rajasthan Assembly Elections on 7th December. Incumbency is a convenient fig leaf to cover non-performance. Election is an acid test of performance. This is a direct fight between BJP and Congress. Rajasthan Elections 2018 will be the game changer for Lok Sabha Elections 2019

Our Team has analyzed factors that decide the outcome of elections in the state:

  • Rajasthan is bipolar in character with BJP and Congress as two major parties slugging it out.
  • BJP is ruling the state now.
  • Rajasthan is alternating between BJP and Congress.
  • In 2014 Rajasthan was swept by BJP, by securing 25 out of 25 in Lok Sabha.
  • Rajasthan have maintained a vote difference of 13%
  • As we know people are giving clear majority to a party. Congress had a ignominious defeat in Rajasthan in last assembly elections.
  • Congress is facing internal conflicts and sabotage. They have two faces Sachin Pilot and Ashok Gehlot.


Will the BJP retain the state?

Public Opinion:

  1. Rajasthan is alternating between Congress and BJP. In 2018 it is the turn of Congress. Congress can take advantage of the anti-incumbency of BJP.
  2. Vasundara Raje has been doing well in development angle. Hence Congress may find it difficult to attack on development.
  3. Law and Order is fairly good in Rajasthan except for isolated incidents.
  4. Vasundara, being a Rajput, has the full backing of the community who form substantial portion of the population.
  5. Hindus form 88% of the population and Muslims 9%. Hindutva, works and polarization on religious basis helps BJP. People are very conscious of their religion.
  6. Since Rajasthan has a long border with Pakistan, any issues pertaining to Pakistan will have a bearing on the state.
  7. Padmavati, film of Bhansali, is resented by the people. By banning the film the state government has scored a point against Congress.
  8. BJP has the initial momentum. It is yet to be seen how the state leadership encases its advantages.

Can Congress win the 2018 Rajasthan Assembly elections, or will it be the BJP again?




RAJASTHANI people are smartest one, in context of giving political power. They never allow any ruling party to have full power and hold. There is history of choosing alternating parties. This is the reason why no party claims Rajasthan as their main state. Ahead of Rajasthan Assembly Elections, this is our Ground Report.

In 2013 Assembly Elections and 2014 Lok Sabha Elections BJP came this time there is good chance of congress. However people are happy with government’s development work.

These are some of the points which causes win of BJP as shared by a people of Rajasthan to our team on Ground.

  1. BJP(NDA) Has Very Unique Marketing Strategy.(PM as well)
  2. All of the Cabinet Ministers are socially active which leads it to Target youth.
  3. Also having very good involvement of trending matter whereas opponent used to run-away from situation (nothing to brag about here)
  4. Already we’ve seen so many big marginal victories in many big states.
  5. After urban areas it now covering all the rural areas now!
  6. As numbers of voters are increasing day by day we can conclude that people are getting aware and started taking interest in polity.

Our Team had a conversation with number of people on Ground. What TUP has learned here is that there are some initiatives which BJP has under its belt to show off. Like Bhamashah Health Insurance, Digitization of services, Sampark Portal, Water conservation schemes, Scholarship of General Category students and few more.

  • Rajasthan is a unique state where power is alternating between Congress and BJP. In 2013 Ashok Ghelot, lost the election even though he had some creditable performance in some sectors. But his complete neglect of infrastructure cost him his election. Also struggles within the party made his cause difficult.
  • Vasundara Raje has been successful in giving highest importance to development of the state. She is able to bring the state on the road of development. In Skill Development Rajasthan stands first on all India level. While in investment Rajasthan is third as per RBI. As per World Bank Rajasthan is sixth in ease of doing business. In Solar Energy development Rajasthan stands first. Also stands first nationally in building toilets under Swatch Bharath Abhyan. All these achievements are only the beginning of a change in development witnessed in the state. The present BJP government is riding high on its development or Vikas.
  • Unlike in 2013, in 2018 assembly election, a new issue having very wide ramifications has cropped up under the film Padmavati. The dream scene, the dance of Padmavati, the sequence of seeing the reflection of princess Padmavati through the mirror when no mirror was invented at that time, became contentious issues which Rajputs under Karni Sena, are against. This has given a handle to the BJP, government. How far this will affect the election or help BJP is a moot question.
  • Unlike Ashok Ghelot and Sachin Pilot who had to face internal sabotage, Vasundara do not have such problems. Secondly BJP is endowed with a Charismatic leader under Modi, whose presence itself makes a lot of difference. Thirdly there is no corruption case against Vasundara or her ministry. Fourthly the government is focused on development and they are visible. Finally BJP has a strong organization unlike Congress. Hence the contest will be close and unpredictable as of now.


This is a Public Opinion which TUP has got on ground covering Rajasthan Elections 2018 closely. Everyday there can be a new story a change but till now this is the situation and facts we gathered. Let’s see who will win Rajasthan Elections 2018 – BJP or Congress.
