First Phase of Lok Sabha Elections Witnesses Enthusiastic Voter Turnout in Rajasthan

In the first phase of the Lok Sabha elections, voters in Rajasthan exhibited remarkable enthusiasm as they flocked to polling stations across the state. This phase encompassed 12 Lok Sabha seats, with preliminary estimates indicating a voter turnout of nearly 58 percent. 

The festival of democracy saw voters from diverse backgrounds exercising their franchise, including the elderly like 106-year-old Dhanbai Patni Gurjar, who made headlines for her determination to cast her vote. Alongside her, prominent political figures such as Chief Minister Bhajan Lal Sharma, Union Minister Arjun Meghwal, and Congress General Secretary Sachin Pilot actively participated in the electoral process.

Security arrangements were robust, with Rajasthan witnessing a peaceful polling process thanks to the deployment of approximately 75,000 Rajasthan police officers and personnel, along with Central Armed Police Forces and Special Armed Forces.

The day also saw significant political activity, with Central Home Minister Amit Shah addressing rallies and conducting roadshows in support of BJP candidates across various constituencies. Former Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot and Deputy Chief Minister Sachin Pilot also engaged in vigorous campaigning for their respective party candidates.

As the voting concluded for the first phase, attention now turns to the 13 Lok Sabha seats slated for the second phase. It remains to be seen whether the political landscape will witness a shift in dynamics as the electoral journey progresses.
