Congress is in the mood to adopt the old strategy in the by-elections
After the death of Pandit Bhanwarlal Sharma, now the Congress wants to win the by-election battle by giving ticket to his own family. Even in the by-elections held in the past, the Congress retained its seat by giving tickets to the relatives of the deceased MLAs. Here also Congress seems to be in a mood to adopt the same formula. Congress is once again in the mood to retain its seat by riding on the sympathy wave.

The wave of sympathy in the by-elections has been quite impressive
Looking at the history of the by-elections held in Rajasthan during this assembly period, the wave of sympathy between both the major parties has been quite impressive. However, the BJP did not give tickets to the kin of the deceased MLA during the by-election to the Dhariawad assembly seat. The party also had to bear the brunt of it and the official candidate of BJP came third.
