Meanwhile, in Telangana, the grand old party has comfortably reached the majority mark as per the latest trends of the Election Commission of India.

"According to the initial trends, the BJP is leading in Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh, and the Congress is forming the government in Telangana. There is a close contest in Chhattisgarh. Therefore, I feel it is too early to say who is winning. The picture will be clear by 1 pm. We hope that Congress will win the elections," Bihar Deputy Chief Minister said.

At 11:48 am, the BJP was leading in 157 of the 230 seats in Madhya Pradesh, the Congress in 71 seats, and the Bahujan Samaj Party in one, as per the ECI early trend results.

The election to the 230-member Madhya Pradesh Assembly was a fight between the BJP and the Congress, whose then 15-month government, formed in the year 2018, was toppled from power in 2020 with help from Jyotiraditya Scindia, who defected to the BJP from the Congress.

The counting of votes in the elections to the 230-member state assembly held on November 17 began at 8 am today. Postal ballots were counted between 8 am and 8.30 am, after which the counting of votes through EVMs began in the presence of officials and political parties' authorised agents.

There are 199 seats in the Rajasthan assembly, and the halfway mark is 100. The Congress has been in power in Rajasthan for the last term.

Moreover, the Bharat Adivasi Party (BHRTADVSIP) is leading by two seats, the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) by three seats, and the Independent by seven seats.

Rajasthan went to the polls for 199 of the 200 assembly seats on November 25. In the Karanpur constituency, elections were adjourned due to the passing of Congress candidate Gurmeet Singh Koonar.

Chhattisgarh is witnessing a close fight between the BJP and the ruling Congress party, as the BJP is leading in 43 seats while the Congress is leading in 39 seats in the state. The halfway mark for the 90-member assembly of Chhattisgarh is 46.

The polling in the state was held in two phases. The first phase was held in 20 constituencies on November 7, with 223 candidates in the contest, while the polling in the remaining constituencies with 958 candidates was held in the second phase on November 17.

In Telangana, the grand old party has comfortably reached the majority mark as per the latest trends of the Election Commission of India. The Congress is leading on 61 seats, the BRS on 36, and the BJP on 10, as per the ECI.

Telangana went to vote on November 30. The Telangana election results will be important for the Congress as it heads into the 2024 Lok Sabha elections. A win in Karnataka and Telangana would further cement its presence in the South.
