Will BJP win in Madhya Pradesh yet again?

In many ways, this is the toughest election that Shivraj Singh Chouhan has faced in Madhya Pradesh, a state where he has won the last three consecutive elections. The past couple of years have seen agricultural disruptions and multiple caste related agitations in the state. In the meantime, the members of the Congress party seem to have set aside their internal differences and have come together to oppose the incumbent party. But even so, Chouhan’s goodwill in the state seems to still run strong. In this episode, we ask if the BJP will win in Madhya Pradesh yet again, and try to understand how the result of this election will affect what happens in the 2019 general elections.
