BJP Takes Lead In Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan & Chhattisgarh; Congress In Telangana

Mumbai: According to the most recent trends from the Election Commission, the BJP is expected to have a strong showing in the Hindi heartland states, including a two-thirds majority in Madhya Pradesh and easy wins in Rajasthan and Chhattisgarh.

On Sunday, at eight in the morning, the votes in the four states that held elections last month were counted.

The ruling Bharat Rashtra Samithi, which has ruled India’s youngest state for the previous ten years, is about to suffer a blow as the Congress is set to win Telangana for the first time.

In Madhya Pradesh, the BJP is ahead on 163 out of 230 seats, in Chhattisgarh, 53 out of 90 seats, and in Rajasthan, 114 out of 199 seats. Congress currently holds a 36-seat majority in the state, continuing to hold its perceived advantage in Chhattisgarh. It is leading on 65 seats in Madhya Pradesh and 70 seats in Rajasthan. Rajasthan appears to have adopted the more than thirty-year-old practice of alternating governments, and Ashok Gehlot’s Congress administration looks to be in the process of dissolving.

After ruling the state for eighteen of the previous twenty years, the BJP is likely to return to power, which is a sign of the party’s organizational strength as well as the popularity of its policies and leadership. The party is setting new records in Madhya Pradesh.

In Chhattisgarh, where the ruling Congress was expected to perform well, the BJP has made a strong comeback. The BJP appears to have had success with a robust, persistent, and aggressive campaign, along with Congress’s matching election pledges.

With its leader A Revanth Reddy being viewed as a harsh critic of Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao, the Congress party in Telangana benefited from the anti-incumbency movement against the ruling Bharat Rashtra Samithi.

In the southern state, the BJP has increased its vote share and is on track to increase its total. Although the Congress is likely to win in Telangana, months ahead of the Lok Sabha elections, the party is concerned about its performance in the Hindi heartland states. The Congress party only holds official power in Himachal Pradesh and is a part of the Bihar government, out of the whole Hindi heartland. On Monday, there will be counting in Mizoram, which held elections a month ago.
