Alwar by-poll elections: What party chiefs had to say?
“BJP is indulging in politics of hatred and violence here too. But like Rahul Gandhi said in Gujarat, we will follow the same pattern here and do politics of love and compassion to win all the three bypolls,” Pilot added.
Contrastingly, Rajasthan BJP chief Ashok Parnami said that Congress doesn’t even stand a chance in these elections. “There’s no anti-incumbency. We will win all three seats with bigger margins. Just in April, we swept the Dholpur assembly bypoll, a seat which was not even held by us previously,” he said.
