Due to the enmity, Congress’s game got spoiled on these seats

Congress’s defeat on these two seats of Anta and Chhabra-Baran districts was due to internal politics. Gehlot

government minister Pramod Jain Bhaya was contesting from Anta seat. Bhaya lost the election to BJP’s

Kanwarlal meena by 5861 votes. Similarly, the party had fielded former mla Karan Singh in Chhabra. Karan
