With an attempt to regain Ajmer division and strike a chord with the people, Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje concluded her pre-poll tour by paying homage at the shrine of Meera Bai, a mystic poet of Rajasthan and other temples. 

Raje, in her address at one of the meetings in Nagaur, said, "No state can prosper without the blessings of the gods and saints." After losing Ajmer bastion in the Lok Sabha bypolls, she left no stone unturned to gain the confidence of the people. Raje covered 424 km and 29 Assembly seats, in which she addressed nine public gatherings.
The division is crucial as it is majorly dominated by Jat and Gujjar communities, which are at present not getting along with the BJP in Rajasthan. 
To strike a chord with people on the lines of religion, Vasundhara Raje also inaugurated and laid foundation of 19 panoramas. These panoramas are spread across the state and include, panoramas of Nimbakacharya at Salemabad in Ajmer, Veer Tejaji and guru Jhambhoji ji panoramas in Nagaur; Saint Peepaji's in Jhalwar and Krishna Bhakt Ali Baksh panorama in Alwar.
The state government is currently busy making 48 panoramas across the state at a cost of Rs 150 crore, out of which, the work on 44 have already been completed.
