Jaipur, Nov 3 (UNI) The ruling BJP in Rajasthan, unperturbed by a possible anti-incumbency factor, is making a ''resolute'' bid to retain power for a second successive term, party state president and sitting MP Om Prakash Mathur said.

Talking to UNI here, Mr Mathur said the party, which was facing various organisational problems prior to his appointment as the state president in January this year, had been recharged now and was geared up to do well in the coming state assembly elections.

He said Vasundhara Raje Government had carried out a lot of developmental work with many welfare programmes during its five-year term and the party workers were ready to encash the same in the elections.

''Anti incumbency factor is obvious to some extent against the ruling party but we are not worried of that, as we know how to face it and do the needful,'' Mr Mathur said.

''I do have good experience in dealing with anti incumbency phenomenon and achieve damage control,'' he said adding that they have achieved success amid the same situation in Madhya Pradesh and Gujarat last year.

The BJP was going to repeat the Gujarat success in Rajasthan, said Mr Mathur, who was the party general secretary and Gujarat unit incharge at the time of Assembly polls there.

He said delimitation of the Lok Sabha and Assembly constituencies had also made their task easy. Since delimitation has changed the nature, constitution, category and geography of 61 of the 120 seats held by the BJP, itself minimised the impact of anti incumbency factor, he added.
