Assembly Polls 2018: Elections results for 5 states to be announced

Congress names Kamal Nath as chief minister-designate of Madhya Pradesh Congress leads in three BJP-ruled states, TRS in Telangana

Six months down the line when a new central government takes over in Delhi, we could reminisce to say - "hey, that day was pretty damn important!"

Mizoram is the only remaining state in the North-East, which is not under the rule of BJP-led NDA. 3 states Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Rajasthan among 5 are ruled by the BJP and Congress wants to make a comeback in these states.

BJP leader and incumbent chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan has said that Kamal Nath doing all this even before the results are out is ridiculous.

The state went for voting on November 28, and the results will be announced on December 11. PM Modi was able to draw large crowds in his campaign rallies and focused to attack the Congress on dynasty politics and corruption.

Election results time: The counting will begin at 8 am.

A win in Rajasthan despite all odds and history could reinforce the 'Modi magic, ' beyond any doubt. The BJP has been in power in the state since 2003 and is seeking a fourth straight term.

The exit polls painted a mixed picture, with an aggregate of 9 post-election surveys predicting a photo-frame finish in Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh, with the BJP holding a grim edge.

The key issue in the state is development as well as farmers distress.

Six major exit polls showed the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party and the Congress party are neck-and-neck in the states of Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh.

In Madhya Pradesh, the majority mark is 116 for the 230-seat Assembly. It also placed before the bench the report submitted by Chief Electoral Officer to the Election Commission of India refuting media reports on short-term failure of CCTV cameras due to power cut in Bhopal and delay in depositing three unused EVMs/VVPATs machine in Khandwa.

Communal politics of a particular political party.

Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) chief Sharad Pawar, Trinamool Congress (TMC) supremo Mamata Banerjee, National Conference (NC) chief Farooq Abdullah, Communist Party of India (Marxist) general secretary Sitaram Yechury and Communist Party of India (CPI) general secretary S Sudhakar Reddy are expected to attend the meeting. He has invited the leaders of all the non-BJP parties. In down south, the two Dravidian parties - AIADMK and DMK, the latter in particular, could consider entering into a formal alliance with the Congress.

In Odhisha, the Biju Janata Dal's Naveen Patanaik could look at the Congress to counter the saffron challenge.
