It is clear that Rajesh Pilot, who died while touring his Lok Sabha constituency, Dausa in northeast Rajasthan, remains extremely popular with the masses. The posters of Rama Pilot bear his photograph, along with that of Congress president Sonia Gandhi. Her late husband is clearly Rama Pilot's USP in her battle against Vasundhara Raje. Her speeches are full of references to Rajesh Pilot, all of which have the crowds nodding in acknowledgement.

Both Rama Pilot and Vasundhara Raje are colleagues in the Lok Sabha: Pilot from Dausa, which she won after her husband's death, while Vasundhara Raje is from Jhalawar, under which area comes the Jhalrapatan constituency.
