With just hours remaining until the much-anticipated announcement of Assembly election results in Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Telangana, and Chhattisgarh, the nation holds its breath, considering these elections as the semi-finals for the upcoming Lok Sabha in 2024.

The BJP is in power in Madhya Pradesh, the Congress is ruling Rajasthan and Chhattisgarh. In Telangana, the K Chandrashekhar Rao-led Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS) has been in power since 10 years and in Mizoram, the MNF is ruling.

So far, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is moving towards a win in 3 states — Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and Rajasthan, while the Indian National Congress (INC) seems set to take power from BRS in Telangana.

The Poll of polls earlier predicted a decisive win for the BJP in Madhya Pradesh and a clear majority for the Congress in Telangana. It also predicted the BJP maintaining a lead in Rajasthan, and the Congress in Chhattisgarh. Although the overall trends stayed the same, Chhattisgarh's results brought a surprise.

Madhya Pradesh:

Rajasthan:

Exit Polls Prediction: In Rajasthan, the Poll of Polls predicted a continuation of the 30-year-old trend, foreseeing a comfortable win for the BJP with 104 seats, while the Congress-led alliance was expected to secure 85 seats. Total seats are 200. However, the counting of votes will be for 199 seats, due to the death of the Congress candidate Gurmeet Singh Koonar in Sriganganagar's Karanpur seat.
