Ajmer (Rajasthan) [India] Jan. 27 (ANI): Rajasthan Congress chief Sachin Pilot on Saturday said the Congress will win all three seats in Rajasthan bypolls.

The voting will be conducted for Ajmer, Alwar Lok Sabha and Mandalgadh Assembly constituencies in Rajasthan on January 29.

Talking to ANI, Pilot, who is also Rajasthan Congress president, said, "The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is just into caste politics. The ruling party is spending money, distributing liquor, but despite that Congress will win all three seats."

He also said that whatever development is being seen in the state was done by the Congress during its rule.

"I do not want to discuss on development. The development in the state was done by the Congress, and people still remember work done by the Congress," Pilot added.

Meanwhile, Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje on Saturday held a roadshow in Ajmer.

Raje was accompanied by BJP candidate from Ajmer, Ramswarup Lamba, who is the son of deceased MP and former union minister Sanwar Lal Jat.

The Ajmer seat fell vacant after the demise of Sanwar Lal in August last year.

Both Congress and BJP are campaigning neck to neck in the city to sweep the upcoming election.

The Congress party has fielded Raghu Sharma against Lamba. The counting of votes will take place on 1 February.

With state scheduled for Assembly elections later this year, the results of these by-elections will be keenly watched. (ANI)
