Rajasthan, MP, Mizoram, Telangana, Chhattisgarh Election 2018 highlights: Bringing an end to its prolonged electoral losses since 2014, the Congress ousted the BJP to win Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh and Madhya Pradesh. In Madhya Pradesh, the nail-biting contest reached its finale this morning after the Congress emerged as the single largest party with 114 seats and has approached the Governor to stake a claim to the government. Both Mayawati-led BSP and Akhilesh Yadav’s Samajwadi Party have offered support to the Congress. Three-time CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan conceded defeat and has tendered his resignation.
In Chhattisgarh, the Congress is back after 15 years with an absolute majority, while in Rajasthan the party fell two seats short of crossing the 101-majority mark. The reverses for the BJP in the Hindi heartland threw wide open the 2019 Lok Sabha elections which until a few months ago appeared to be in its grip.
