NEW DELHI: Counting of votes in Rajasthan has been started, along with the result for polls in four other states – Madhya Pradesh, Telangana, Mizoram, and Chhattisgarh. Voting for Rajasthan’s 199 seats were held on December 7, which saw a voter turnout of 74.21 per cent, down from the 75.23 per cent turnout in 2013. Polling in Rajasthan’s Ramgarh seat was postponed due to the death of BSP candidate Laxman Singh. Polling in that seat will take place later, the election commission said. The ruling BJP is aiming to retain power in the state that it won in 2013, when it displaced the Congress government led by Ashok Gehlot. Rajasthan tends to alternate between the BJP and the Congress, a trend that has added to the hopes of the Congress party.
