With the first phase of voting over in Rajasthan, the political parties have shifted their focus to the remaining 13 seats that will go to the polls in the second phase on April 26. The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), which is looking to make a hat-trick of victories in the desert state by winning all 25 Lok Sabha seats, has also upped the ante on its traditional rival by holding various rallies of its star campaigner, Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Therefore, on Tuesday, PM Modi is yet again visiting Rajasthan, and this time around, he will be focusing his attention on the Tonk-Sawai Madhopur constituency, which abounds in non-BJP vote bank, i.e., Muslim voters, who traditionally are not considered BJP’s voters.

However, over the course of the past two general elections, the Tonk seat has fallen into the BJP’s kitty, and hence it is believed that for the third time too, the BJP will be able to win the seat. While the political narrative may be created against the BJP, PM Modi and the party’s strategists know that through his various ‘balming’ schemes, Modi has brought a major relief to all sections, particularly the Muslim community, and it is to drive home this point that PM Modi will address a massive rally in Uniara, which falls under the Tonk-Sawai Madhopur constituency.

The BJP has fielded Sukhbir Singh Jaunapuria from this seat. Apart from Muslims, this seat also abounds with Gurjar and Meena voters, and the BJP, through PM Modi’s rally, is looking to woo the voters and secure its victory in this seat.

Interestingly, Chief Minister Bhajan Lal Sharma has also been working hard to ensure that Jaunapuria wins the seat. He has held several meetings with party workers from the area while also driving home the point that the people of Sawai Madhopur will get massive benefits from the Eastern Rajasthan Canal Project, which will be a lifeline for the constituency, especially when there is already immense pressure on the existing major water body of the region, Bisalpur Dam.
