Madhya Pradesh

The BJP emerged victorious in Madhya Pradesh, clinching an impressive 163 out of 230 seats. The Congress, in contrast, lagged with a distant second, securing only 66 seats. This resounding victory for the BJP in Madhya Pradesh solidifies its stronghold in the state’s political landscape.


In Rajasthan, the saffron party continued its winning streak by capturing 115 out of the 199 seats contested. The Congress, while putting up a noteworthy fight, managed to secure 69 seats, falling short of the BJP’s dominant performance in the state.


Chhattisgarh witnessed a decisive outcome with the BJP securing 54 out of the total 90 seats, establishing a substantial presence in the state’s legislative assembly. The Congress, while not far behind, secured 35 seats, reflecting a closely contested battle for political supremacy.

These results underscore the BJP’s strong electoral performance across the states, consolidating its position as a formidable political force. The Congress, despite garnering significant votes, faces the challenge of translating this support into victories at the constituency level. The unfolding political landscape suggests a need for both parties to evaluate their strategies and mobilize support effectively for future electoral battles.

These results indicate the need for introspection within the Congress party to understand why these votes did not translate into seats and strategize for a strong comeback in the future.

In conclusion, the results call for introspection within the Congress party to understand why these votes did not translate into seats and to strategize for a strong comeback in the future.
