Many prominent leaders, including Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot, Assam Governor Gulab Chand Kataria, former CM Vasundhara Raje, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) state president CP Joshi, former Deputy CM Sachin Pilot, Deputy Leader of Opposition Dr Satish Poonia exercised their franchise in the early hours.

Gehlot along with his family, wife Sunita Gehlot, son Vaibhav Gehlot, daughter-in-law Himanshu Gehlot, exercised their franchise in his Sardarpura assembly constituency.

After casting his vote, Gehlot said that from the atmosphere prevailing in the state, it seems that his government will come back to power.

He said that all the voters including women and youth are enthusiastic about voting and there is an undercurrent. On a question, he said that Congress's claims are solid while BJP's claims are hollow.

The CM said, "Our guarantees will work whereas Prime Minister Modi's guarantees have failed. Therefore, there is no discussion about their guarantees."
