Zahida Khan and Zubair Khan of the ruling Congress party are leading in their respective constituencies even as their parent party has faced humiliating defeat in Rajasthan.

While sitting Congress MLA from Kaman Zahida Khan is leading by over 8,000 votes, Zubai Khan who is contesting from Ramgarh is leading by 2000 votes.

In Fatehpur, Bhanwaru Khan of Congress is trailing behind independent candidate by 6000 votes, and in Makrana, Zakir Hussain of Congress is trailing by 9000 votes.

Congress candidate Zakiya who is contesting from Tonk is also trailing at the 3rd position.

Fazal Husain of BSP contesting from Tijara is also trailing behind the independent candidate by over 6000 votes.

The BJP has sweeped the Rajasthan polls by dislodging the Congress.

BJP candidates were declared elected in 14 of Rajasthan's 199 constituencies, and were leading in another 131 at 12.40 in the afternoon.

The ruling Congress won one seat, and was leading in only 31 other constituencies.

The BSP was leading on three seats, and the National People's Party on seven.

Gurjant Singh, the BJP candidate, was declared elected from Sadulsahar. He defeated Congress candidate Jagish Chander by a margin of over 4,800 votes.

Prominent BJP leaders who were leading include chief ministerial candidate Vasundhara Raje and Leader of Opposition Gulab Chand Kataria.

Vasundhara Raje, who is also the BJP state president, said: "I was confident that we will win. It is a vote against the Congress party's poor governance in the state and I thank Narendra Modi (BJP prime minister candidate) and Rajnath Singh (the party president) for touring the state extensively and holding rallies."

The Congress, which had won 102 seats in the last elections, was recording one of its worst defeats in the state.

Sources in the BJP told IANS that the BJP has already started to make preparations for the oath-taking ceremony of Vasundhara Raje as the chief minister of the state.

"She is likely to take oath in the next two or three days at Janpath, in front of the state assembly in Jaipur," a source in the BJP said.
