Rajasthan, MP, Mizoram, Telangana, Chhattisgarh Election 2018 highlights: Ending its prolonged electoral reversals, a reinvigorated Congress produced a resilient comeback as it is on course to oust the BJP to form its governments in Rajasthan and Chhattisgarh. Madhya Pradesh is witnessing a tantalisingly close fight between the ruling BJP and the opposition Congress. The TRS, on the other hand, secured a thumping majority in Telangana while MNF has defeated Congress in the latter’s last bastions in Northeast.
As of 10.30 pm, Congress has won 35 seats and leading in 33 others, while BJP has won 7 and leading in 9 others in the 90-member Chhattisgarh assembly. In Rajasthan, the Congress emerged as single largest party by securing 99 seats. However, it fell two seats short of crossing 101-majority mark. It now needs support and post-poll alliance to form the government. BJP, on the other hand, could win only 73, down from 163 in 2013. In MP, the Congress has won 69 seats and leading in 44 seats, while BJP has won 66 seats and leading in 44 seats. In the event of not crossing the majority mark, the Congress may need to stitch a post-poll alliance with BSP and Samajwadi Party.
