The BJP was ruling Jodhpur Municipal Corporation but the government bifurcated the municipal corporation into Jodhpur north and Jodhpur South this time.
The CM, however, did not visit Jodhpur even once during elections and also skipped voting. His son Vaibhav Gehlot looked after the whole poll process that led to the party’s victory in one corporation.
On the other hand, Shekhawat’s efforts also turned successful in one municipal corporation. Gehlot’s political mastery was visible in the bifurcation of municipal corporation and delimitation of wards which paved the way for the party’s victory in one municipal corporation.
