The Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) has decided to fight on all 200 assembly seats in Rajasthan. The Mayawati led group had won 3 seats in the 2013-assembly elections and 6 seats in 2008-elections.
BSP Rajasthan vice-president Dungarram Gedar, told media that “Our preparations are in full swing and we will contest on all 200 seats in the forthcoming elections”. “And the tickets will be finalize soon and BSP chief Mayawati will hold rallies in the state,” he added.
“We are expecting to increase our tally in the 2018-elections because people are unhappy with both the BJP and the Congress. There is a resentment against the ruling BJP and people are not seeing any hope in the Congress,” another BSP leader Bhagwan Singh told media.
The Bahujan Samaj Party evolved around 3.37 percent vote share in 2013 elections and 7.60 percent in the 2008 polls respectively.
