Over the last two years, the Congress has been facing a series of high-profile exits of their party leaders like Jyotiraditya Scindia, Jitin Prasada and RPN Singh. Notably, they all switched to the BJP.

On Wednesday, Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot attended the presentation given by poll strategist Prashant Kishor along with his Chhattisgarh counterpart Bhupesh Baghel.
