About Jaipur Rural Constituency
This is a new constituency that has been carved out after delimitation, so there is no precedent in the Lok Sabha.Â Meenas will be a major vote bank in this region.
The Assembly polls tell a strange story. One would have assumed that the BJP would have done badly in the region dominated by the Meenas. Nevertheless, of the eight assembly segments, the BJP won five, the Congress two, and an independent won one.
