#Assembly Election Results 2023: BJP Supreme In Hindi Heartland, Congress Rises In The South

The results of the recent assembly polls reflect a political landscape divided between the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) stronghold in the Hindi heartland, led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, and the Congress emerging as a favored alternative in the South, challenging regional players. Notably, the BJP exhibits a higher success rate in retaining governments compared to the Congress.

Therefore, after the recent election, it's pretty clear that India is split in two when it comes to politics. Up north, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is doing well and controls 12 state governments. But down south, it's a different story for the BJP.


#Telangana Assembly Elections 2023: Survey Predicts Win For Congress, BRS To Be Main Opposition

A pre-poll survey by Aaraa Poll Strategies Private Limited says the Congress is set to emerge as the single largest party with its least predicted number of seats very close to the magic figure. It predicted defeat of the Chief Minister K.Chandrashekhar Rao in the hands of his rival from Bharatiya Janata Party K.Venkata Ramana Reddy in Kamareddy, though he could win Gajwel.

According to the survey, Congress is set to win in 58 to 67 constituencies, pushing the ruling BRS party to the second position with 41-49 seats. BJP will secure five to seven seats, with massive erosion in the number of votes polled when compared with its previous best.


#Exit Polls Split On Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Give Congress Edge In Chhattisgarh, Telangana

Exit polls on Thursday disagreed on the outcome of the assembly polls in three of the five states while broadly agreeing that the Congress had the edge in Telangana and Chhattisgarh. The divergence was mainly on Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan and to a lesser extent on Mizoram.

If the results on Sunday mirror what the polls are projecting — a big if going by past experience — this round of polls, billed as a semifinal by many, would leave both sides with enough to claim they have the momentum in the run-up to Lok Sabha polls in 2024.
