BJP Ahead In 3 States, Congress In 1, The BJP national icon Narendra Modi is working on the ground and it looks like the road to 2024 for BJP seems to be on the right track.
The Congress has surged ahead in Telangana where votes are being counted today for the 119 assembly seats. According to early trends of Telangana assembly elections results, the Congress is leading on 70 seats, while the ruling Bharat Rashtra Samiti (BRS) is ahead on 37.
If the trend continues, this will be the first time that India's youngest state sees another party at the helm. The BRS has been at the helm since the state's birth in 2014.
The BJP has crossed the halfway mark in Rajasthan with 115 seats, while the Congress trails with 75 seats, early leads show.
The BJP is set to claim a massive win in the Madhya Pradesh Assembly election.
This is despite exit polls predicting a tight race and some even giving the Congress an outside chance at ousting the BJP from a state it has dominated since 2003. At 1.00 pm the BJP was ahead in 160 seats - more than double the Congress' 71. These numbers represent a gain of 48 seats for the BJP and a loss of 44 for the Congress, relative to the 2018 results.
The Congress was firmly in the lead in Chhattisgarh, and showed early trends. But by 11 am, the BJP sneaked up - overtaking its rival. At 1:00 am, three hours into the counting, the BJP was leading in 51 seats, while the Congress was at 37. The turnaround in BJP numbers came in the last hour.
"The people believed in Modiji's guarantee, that's what the trends show. We could see the undercurrent, didn't know it would be this huge. Bhupesh Baghel has been rejected by Chhattisgarh. Bhupesh Baghel's corruption, liquor scam, Mahadev app scam contributed to this results," Raman Singh, BJP veteran and former Chief Minister, told reporters.
