Madhya Pradesh By election Results: The counting is underway in assembly bypolls to 28 seats in Madhya Pradesh. With the fate of Shivraj Singh government hanging in balance, the results will be an indication of the effect of the Jyotiraditya Scindia factor in the changed political scenario in the state. The counting began at 8 am in 19 districts where the by-elections were held on November 9. The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) needs to win at least eight of the 28 seats to secure a simple majority in the 230-member assembly with an effective strength of 229.
The Bharatiya Janata Party is banking heavily on Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s popularity and his social engineering in the Bihar Assembly elections. As per the BJP’s plan, PM Modi will address a dozen rallies in the state where polling will be held in three-phase in October-November.
