Cong to Win Rajasthan, MP and Chhattisgarh, Modi Factor to Swing BJP Fortunes in States in 2019: Survey
The Bharatiya Janata Party would lose all three of the upcoming Assembly elections in Chhattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan to the Congress, but the Modi factor would help the party’s fortunes in the Lok Sabha election next year in the three states, a survey conducted by CVOTER and ABP news has predicted.
The survey stated that the Congress would gain a clear majority in all the three states in the elections, by winning 117 out of 230 seats in Madhya Pradesh, 54 out of 90 in Chhattisgarh and 130 out of 200 in Rajasthan. The BJP, on the other hand, would manage only 106, 33 and 57 seats in the three states respectively, the opinion poll predicted.
Winning the three states would be a major boost for the Congress, which has been reduced to power in just four states, ahead of the Lok Sabha elections as polls in these states are being seen as a semi-final ahead of the grand finale next year.
A good showing here would also help the party negotiate for seats for 2019 with any grand alliance partners from a position of strength
