Congress released its second list of 32 candidates for the December 7 assembly elections in Rajasthan on Saturday, fielding former BJP leader Jaswant Singh's son Manvendra against Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje from Jhalrapatan constituency.

The second list was released by the Congress general secretary and in-charge of Rajasthan Mukul Wasnik. The opposition party had declared 152 candidates in the first list on Thursday night.

Manvendra Singh, a former BJP MLA from Sheo, had quit the saffron party in September to join the Congress.

Senior Congress leaders, including Ashok Gehlot, Sachin Pilot, and CP Joshi, are contesting the state elections.
