Vaibhav Gehlot had fought the Lok Sabha election from Rajasthan’s Jodhpur Lok Sabha constituency on Congress ticket against the BJP’s Gajendra Singh Shekhawat. He had to suffer a humiliating defeat at the hands of Shekhawat during the Lok Sabha elections in 2019. The trouncing meant that Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot faced criticism for his son’s loss from Jodhpur, which was considered his stronghold.
It is believed that Gehlot, after gaining entry into Rajasthan cricket politics, can fight the election for the post of the President of Rajasthan Cricket Association. Dr CP Joshi, currently Speaker of Rajasthan Assembly, can soon vacate the post of Rajasthan Cricket Association President.
