The filing of nominations and the scrutinizing of their papers by the Election Commission has been done for the election poll due on November 25.
The battlelines have got clearer on the 10 seats in Jaipur Rural region, which has always stayed intriguing to the poll watchers.
Out of the 10 assembly seats in the Jaipur neighbourhood, six have seen direct battles between BJP and Congress, while the remaining four will have triangular contests, resulting in wins for independent candidates.
Chomu, Chaksu, Phulera, Viratnagar, Jamwa Ramgarh, and Bagru have always seen battles between BJP and Congress, while Shahpura, Dudu, Bassi, and Kotputli have witnessed triangular contests. However, this time Chomu is set for a quadrangular game.
In 2008 from the Chomu constituency, the Congress secured a win 2008, however, in 2013 and 2018, BJP's Ramlal Sharma won.
This time, there is a neck-to-neck competition between four candidates - Sharma, Chhuttan Lal Yadav of Rashtriya Loktantrik Party, Shikha Meel Barala of Congress, and Kailash Raj Saini of BSP.
Phulera is placed as the sole seat that has been a stronghold for the BJP, with Nirmal Kumawat closing off a win in three consecutive elections since 2008.
The saffron party has likewise fielded him against Congress candidate Vidhyadhar Singh, who lost the poll in 2018 by a narrow margin of 1,132 votes.
On the other hand, seats like Chaksu, Viratnagar, and Shahpura, which were once supposed BJP strongholds, were succeeded by Congress and independent candidates in the previous election.
BJP secured successive wins in these seats in the years 2008 and 2013 but couldn't make a hat-trick as it lost in 2018.
In Chaksu and Viratnagar, Sachin Pilot confidante Ved Prakash Solanki and Indraj Gurjar gained a victory in 2018. Congress has again nominated but Solanki seems to be on a sticky ground in Chaksu against BJP's Ramavtar Bairwa, an ex-councilor.
Gurjar would be standing up against Kuldeep Dhankhar, BJP's former official, in Viratnagar.
Alok Beniwal, the Congress rebel who succeeded Shahpura as an independent in 2018, was aiming for an official nomination this time too but the party has nominated newcomer Manish Yadav against BJP's Upen Yadav.
There are often triangular contests on the Shahpura, Kotputli, and Bassi seats. In 2008, Ramswaroop Kasana of the Loktantrik Samajwadi Party resigned from Kotputli.
This time, BJP has nominated Hansraj Patel, who competed in the last two elections as an independent, against Yadav. Nonetheless, BJP's previous nominee Mukesh Goyal has turned rebel.
In Dudu, there is a blunt game between Congress and BJP candidates. Only four nominees have submitted nomination papers for the assembly poll this time.
Congress has fielded sitting independent MLA Babulal Nagar against BJP's Prem Chand Bairwa, who gained a victory in 2013. Teekam Chand Bairwa of BSP and Hanuman Prasad Bairwa of RLP the other two candidates from Dudu.
