Jaipur, Nov 29: The campaigning for Rajasthan assembly elections due on December 1 will conclude on Friday evening.

Leaders from both the ruling Congress and the BJP will carry out extensive campaigning in the state on the final day of the campaigning. While Congress leaders like Vijay Bahuguna, Ghulam Nabi Azad and Sachin Pilot will address meetings in various places, BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi will address rallies in Sumerpur, Pokhran and Jodhpur.

On Thursday, both Modi and Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi addressed rallies in the poll-bound state. Congress chief Sonia Gandhi has also addressed rallies in the state.

While Modi has attacked the Congress government in the state saying that the state's development has come to a standstill under Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot and urged people to vote in favour of BJP's chief ministerial candidate Vasundhara Raje, the Congress has counter-attacked by saying that the BJP only divides people on the basis of caste, religion and region.

Two-hundred seats of the Rajasthan assembly will go to the polls on December 1. In the 2008 elections, the Congress had won 96 seats while the BJP won 78 seats. The BSP won six seats while the CPI(M) won three seats.

The results of Rajasthan polls will be declared along with those of Chhattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh and Delhi on December 8.
