Election results today top news: TRS retains Telangana; Cong wins in Raj, MP, Chhattisgarh

Election results today top news: The Congress party won with a clear majority in Rajasthan and Chhattisgarh, while in Madhya Pradesh, it ousted the BJP government. The TRS retained Telangana and the MNF defeated the Congress.

The results are live at Election Commission of India’s website http://www.eciresults.nic.in.

Assembly election results for five states were announced today. The Congress party secured a clear mandate in Chhattisgarh and Rajasthan while also clinching the seat of power in Madhya Pradesh after giving a tough fight to the BJP. The TRS retained Telangana and in Mizoram, the MNF has come to power.

The BJP was trying for a fourth term in Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh and was seeking to retain power in Rajasthan. These three states also played a significant role for the BJP in the 2014 general elections, when it had won 62 out of the 65 Lok Sabha seats in these three states. Congress challenged the BJP’s rule in these three states. However, it was not able to protect its last bastion in the North-East– Mizoram– the only state not under the rule of BJP-led NDA. The eight North-East states together have 25 Lok Sabha seats.
