Not only has the margin of overall victory been historic in these elections, the -to- margin of votes too has been phenomenally large. At the same time, several stalwarts scraped just enough votes to save face!
The kind of victory margins, which were hitherto seen and heard of only in the Parliamentary elections, were witnessed in the Assembly elections on Sunday. And it wasn’t just the sharp rise in overall voting percentage that made the difference. Statistics speak of people’s clarity of thought, of knowing that they want change, and the kind of change they wish to see.
If these s prove their worth, they will have ensured that the fortunes of the nation, along with their political careers, change for good.
Topping this list is: BJP’s senior leader Ghanshyam Tiwari, who defeated Congress’ Sanjay Bapna, by a mind boggling margin of 62,832! BJP leader and CM-designate also won her seat by a margin of over 60,000 votes, defeating Congress’ Meenakshi Chandrawat. Next in line is her party leader Pratap Singh who also defeated NPP’s Mansingh Dhanoria by more than 60,000 votes from Chhabra.
Meanwhile, there are some political giants who won barely by the skin of their teeth. And topping this list is NPP leader Kirori Lal Meena who scraped through in Lalsot with 491 votes. Second in line is NPP’s Naveen Pilania who beat Satish Poonia by a narrow margin of 329 votes.
