It is going to be a tough fight between the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the Congress party in Madhya Pradesh, predicts the India Today-Axis My India exit poll.

According to the India Today-Axis My India exit poll, the BJP is set to win 102 seats in the 120-seat state legislative assembly — registering a loss of 55 seats, in comparison to the last assembly poll.

Madhya Pradesh, which has traditionally been a stronghold of the BJP, became almost invincible under the incumbent chief minister, Shivraj Singh Chauhan. But this assembly election has etched out a saga of recovery for Congress, according to the exit poll.

Congress is set to win 104-120 seats, a recovery of as many as 54 seats.

Congress is expected to register 3 per cent more number of votes from the rural areas in the state.

In the Chambal region, the vote share of Congress is likely to be 47 per cent as opposed to BJP’s 33, while in the Bundelkhand region, it is set to be 40 per cent. BJP is expected to secure 14 seats in the Bundelkhand region, marking 38 per cent of the vote share.

Congress is set to have a vote share of as much as 41 per cent in the Mahakoshal region, as opposed to BJP’s 38.

According to the India Today-Axis My India exit poll, the BJP’s share is maximum in the Bhopal region, an urban one, amounting to 46 per cent, as opposed to Congress’s 39.

The results of the Madhya Pradesh assembly election will be announced on December 11.

In Madhya Pradesh, the BJP has been in power for well over a decade — 15 years to be exact. And the Congress party is surely looking for a turnaround.

Will this be it for them?
