Ashok Gehlot visited Jodhpur more than six times and even launched a door-to-door campaign in support of his son. Considering the Congress victory in last year’s assembly elections, Jodhpur was considered a safe seat for Vaibhav, but a Modi wave spoiled all political equations.

Of the eight assembly seats under the Jodhpur parliamentary constituency, the Congress has now six legislators. In none of the assembly seats, Vaibhav got an edge.

Shekhawat even took a lead of 18827 votes from Sardarpura, CM’S home assembly constituency.
