The BJP and the Congress are in a neck-to-neck fight in Madhya Pradesh as trends in all 230 Assembly seats show the opposition party having a slight edge over the ruling faction. The BJP led by Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan is hoping for a fourth consecutive term in Madhya Pradesh but the contest is going right down to the wire, with the Congress posing a stiff fight.
While, Congress is in possession of 111 seats, out of a total numbler of 320 seats, and need five more seats for a magic figure, BJP is getting 110 seats.
Congress mobilises senior leaders Kamal Nath and Digvijay Singh to arrange the numbers to touch the majority mark for staking claim to form the new government. In this neck-to-neck fight, SP has already extended their support to Congress and BSP is likely to back the Opposition as well.
Samajwadi Party and Gondvana Gantantra Party are getting one each, who are also likely to support Congress. Two more BSP candidates are also hopeful to support Congress. But five independents are likely to play role in formation of new government.
