Several parts of Rajasthan are likely to witness isolated rainfall with thunderstorm and gusty winds on Friday, April 26, according to the Indian Meteorological Department's latest weather bulletin. Voters in 13 Lok Sabha constituencies in the state will cast their votes in the second phase of general elections tomorrow. 

Despite rainfall prediction by IMD for Rajasthan, the weather forecasting agency has not issued any alert for the state. Hence sudden rainfall is likely to be a challenge for the voters coming to cast their vote.

“Isolated rainfall accompanied with thunderstorm, lightning & gusty winds (30-40 kmph) very likely over Punjab and Haryana-Chandigarh-Delhi on 26 & 27th; over Rajasthan on 26th; over West Uttar Pradesh on 26th; over East Uttar Pradesh on 27th April, 2024," said IMD in its press release.

The fate of two Union ministers and the BJP state president will be decided in this phase. Political pundits will be keenly watching the polling in Tonk-Sawai Madhopur, Ajmer, Pali, Jodhpur, Barmer, Jalore, Udaipur, Banswara, Chittorgarh, Rajsamand, Bhilwara, Kota, Jhalawar-Baran constituencies on April 26.

Will Lok Sabha elections phase 2 be affected?
