The bypoll in the Lok Sabha constituency of Ajmer in Rajasthan concluded on Monday recording a turnout of 65.33 per cent, officials said.

Apart from Ajmer, bypolls were also held in Alwar and Mandalgarh.

The results of the polling will be declared on February 1.

According to the Election Commission, 4,194 polling booths have been set up for polling in the three constituencies.

Some 39 lakh voters were eligible to vote in these elections. While Alwar had a total of 18.27 lakh voters, Ajmer had 18.43 lakh voters and Mandalgarh had 2.31 lakh voters.

For the first time, EVMs with the photos of candidates has been provided to avoid confusion among voters regarding different candidates with the same name.

A total of 11 candidates in Alwar, 23 in Ajmer and eight candidates in Mandalgarh were in the fray.

The elections come as a litmus test for the BJP government, which is facing an uphill battle as the Rajput community has openly announced its support for the Congress in all three seats.

Caste equations are also playing a major role in these by-polls. Two Yadav stalwarts are contesting in Alwar and Jat and Brahmin candidates can be seen in Ajmer and Mandalgarh, respectively.

The by-polls are being held as all three BJP seats fell vacant after the death of the lawmakers. While Ajmer MP Sanwar Lal Jat collapsed at a meeting in Jaipur and passed away on August 9, Alwar MP Mahant Chand Nath died on September 17 following a prolonged illness. The BJP’s Mandalgarh MLA Kirti Kumari died of swine flu on August 28.
