The boundaries of the Pali Lok Sabha constituency were redrawn in 2008 following delimitation of parliamentary constituencies.
In 2014, riding on the BJP wave, the party’s PP Choudhury defeated the Congress candidate Munni Devi Godara by an impressive margin of nearly 4 lakh votes.
This year, the BJP has repeated its candidate while the Congress has fielded the 2009 winner from the constituency Badri Ram Jakhar.
The BJP had won all 25 Lok Sabha seats in Rajasthan in the 2014 elections. However, the Congress won bypolls in two constituencies in 2018, reducing the BJP’s strength to 23.
