Jaipur, Oct 29: A recent survey, carried out by Samay-Hub Pulse, claimed that Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) led by Vasundhara Raje will emerge as the winner in upcoming assembly election in Rajasthan.

Raje, who has been receiving support from BJP's PM candidate Narendra Modi, is expected to bag 103 seats out of 200-member assembly house in the state, said the survey. On the contrary, the present ruling Congress party-led by Ashok Gehlot is likely to get 79 seats. Congress had won 96 seats in the 2008 assembly elections.

Congress will face huge loss, BJP will win Rajasthan assembly election 2013

Gehlot, for whom Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi has been campaigning in the state, will face huge loss in the Rajasthan Assembly elections 2013. The party is likely to suffer loss of 25 seats.

Meanwhile, Raje has topped the list of favourite Chief Minister too. 43 percent voters have favoured Raje as their next chief minister while just 31 per cent voters want incumbent Gehlot for the top job. Interestingly, Young Congress leader Sachin Pilot got 15 per cent votes.

The survey concentrated on several issues which have been haunting Rajasthan under Gehlot's government. Some of these burning issues are -- development, corruption, power and water supply, employment and many others.

While around 49 per cent voters expressed their dissatisfaction with Gehlot government, just 39 per cent looked satisfied over development issues.

On the issue of unemployment, 54 per cent looked happy while 29 per cent voters were not satisfied. On the issue of corruption, 54 per cent voters feel that Gehlot government has taken corrective steps while 34 per cent voters were against it.

On power and water supply issue, 45 and 58 percent voters looked satisfied.

The state will hold its assembly election on Dec 1 and the results will be declared on Dec 8. Rajasthan poll is considered as a crucial election for both Congress and BJP. The two national parties are hoping to strengthen their power ahead of Lok Sabha elections.
