Ahead of Rajasthan assembly elections, Congress has fielded former Rajasthan Congress president BD Kalla from the Bikaner (West) assembly constituency against BJP’s Gopal Joshi. Earlier, Congress had dropped Kalla in the first list on the ground that he lost from the constituency twice in a row. However, party has fielded district Congress president Yashpal Gehlot from Bikaner (West) in its first list announced on November 15. But in its third list announced on Sunday, the party shifted Gehlot to Bikaner (East) and fielded Kalla from Bikaner (West).
During a marriage ceremony on Monday evening, Kalla faced the anguish of Mali community and slogans were raised against the Congress candidate.
