Rajasthan is one of the key states in the Hindi-belt both the national parties — BJP and Congress — are set to give a tough competition to each other. Rajasthan has a total of 4,84,79,229 voters.

BJP's alliance in Rajasthan 

The BJP is contesting polls in alliance with Rashtriya Loktantrik Party (RLP) in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections. Led by Jat leader Hanuman Beniwal, RLP won Khinvsar, Merta and Bhopalgarh seats in 2018 Rajasthan Assembly elections.

Hanuman Beniwal is a former BJP leader who was ousted from the party after his differences with former chief minister Vasundhara Raje. However, after the 2018 assembly election results, which led the BJP to lose the state to Congress, it has aligned with the RLP. Looking at the presence of RLP's presence in some regions, BJP may encash benefit in districts like Ajmer, Pali, Barmer, and Jodhpur. 

Congress' alliance in Rajasthan

Congress is going to contest all 25 seats in the forthcoming election. However, in assembly election 2018, it has allied with Rashtriya Lok Dal led by Ajit Singh, Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) and Sharad Yadav’s Loktantrik Janata Dal. 

Role of Rajasthan Assembly election 2018 results

In 2018, Congress dethrone BJP from power after it won 100 seats in 200 constituency assembly. The BJP which was in power secured 73 seats and couldn't retain the state. Going by the 2018 results, if anti-incumbency wave continues against the BJP, then it will affect BJP's tally which won all 25 Lok Sabha seats in 2014 elections. It was for the first time since 1989 that Congress failed to win even a single seat in 2014 Lok Sabha polls. 

However, it is very hard to predict whether there will be a repeat of 2018 assembly polls or the Modi factor would once again work. In 2014, BJP's total vote share was 54.9

Lok Sabha election 2019 is being held in 7-phases. The first, second and third voting have already taken place. The remaining phases will go to polls on April 29 (4th phase), May 06 (5th phase), May 12 (6th phase) and May 19 (7ht phase).
