Ahead of the Assembly polls, which will be held in 2019, Republic TV, in association with CVoter, has come with the National Approval Ratings to bring forward the mood of the nation in the present time. The Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) is presently in power in the centre, as well as 21 states, either alone or through a coalition of NDA.
One of the biggest states when it comes to assembly, Madhya Pradesh was a walk in the park for BJP in 2014. Though, the situation may well be a little different in 2019.
In the previous general elections, BJP won an astonishing 27 seats out of 29, with an incredible vote share of 54.1%. Congress were limited to two seats, winning 34.9% vote share. Others had 11% vote share.
A repeat of 2014 won't happen, but the prediction suggests that BJP will still manage to 23 seats, four less than previous time. Even their vote share is expected to fall down by 4.7%.
Congress is going to be a direct beneficiary of this. Their seat share will go up to 6, and vote share up to 42%. Others' vote share will go down to 8.6%.
Poll bound Madhya Pradesh is bringing worries for the BJP. The 27 out of 29 seats went to the BJP in the state in 2014 is now showing only 23 of 29 seats.
While the Congress party seems to a direct beneficiary of the BJPs projected loss of seats with a tally of 6 seats against 4 seats of 2014.
Considering the fact that the INC voteshare is said to gain by more than 7% at a time when, it's grabbing 4 sesats away from the BJP in Madhya Pradesh, doesn’t it indicate a big red flag being waived against Shivraj for both Vyapam, Mandsaur and rallying in computer baba’s into governance n what was pledged to be a development oriented regime.
(The results of the 2019 Lok Sabha elections may or may not reflect the results or scenarios of the state assembly elections, nevertheless, to establish where we stand at present, Republic TV and CVoter has presented the National Approval Ratings.)
