As Madhya Pradesh gears up for the upcoming assembly elections, political parties are leaving no stone unturned to win over the voters. Recently, the BJP announced its list of 79 candidates, while the Congress is yet to reveal its list. The fate of the government in the state lies in the hands of the voters, and various claims and promises are being made in the run-up to the elections. In the midst of this, Times Now Navbharat has released an opinion poll.

According to the latest survey report, if the assembly elections were held today in Madhya Pradesh, the BJP could secure 102 to 110 seats, while the Congress is expected to win 118 to 128 seats. Other parties are projected to win 2 seats. In terms of vote share, the BJP is estimated to receive 42.8% of the votes, while the Congress is expected to garner 43.8%. Other parties are likely to receive 13.4% of the votes.

It’s worth mentioning that the BJP has already announced its candidates for 78 out of the 230 seats in the Madhya Pradesh Legislative Assembly. The party has fielded 9 Members of Parliament in the assembly elections, including Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar, Faggan Singh Kulaste, Prahlad Singh Patel, Ganesh Singh, Rakesh Singh, Riti Pathak, and Member of Parliament Uday Pratap Singh. Kailash Vijayvargiya, the BJP General Secretary, is also contesting in the elections from Indore-1.

Recalling the results of the 2018 Madhya Pradesh Assembly elections, the BJP suffered a loss of 56 seats, securing a total of 109 seats. The Congress, on the other hand, won 114 seats, becoming the largest party after nearly 15 years and forming the government for almost one and a half years. However, subsequent political developments saw the BJP return to power, with Jyotiraditya Scindia’s significant role in the party’s resurgence.
