Madhya Pradesh Assembly Elections: A High-Stakes Battle Set for November 17

The Election Commission has officially announced that the Madhya Pradesh assembly elections are scheduled to be held on November 17, with the counting of votes set for December 3. The state’s 230-member Legislative Assembly is currently under the leadership of the BJP, which has maintained its hold on power for the past 15 years.

BJP vs. Congress: A Fierce Contest

The Madhya Pradesh assembly polls are shaping up to be a high-stakes battle, pitting the BJP, led by Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan, against the Congress, which has projected Kamal Nath as its chief ministerial candidate. Both parties are vigorously competing for power, with their campaigns targeting various voter groups, including tribals, OBCs (Other Backward Classes), and women. Freebies and guarantees are being promised as part of their electoral strategies.

While Madhya Pradesh has traditionally been a battleground for the Congress and BJP, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) also seeks to establish its presence in the upcoming elections. This three-way contest adds further intrigue to the political landscape of the state.

Electoral Roll and Eligible Voters

In preparation for the elections, the Madhya Pradesh Election Commission recently released the final electoral roll. The state boasts a substantial voter base, with 56,136,229 eligible voters, including 75,304 service voters.

Madhya Pradesh Chief Electoral Officer Anupam Rajan revealed that out of this voter base, 56,060,925 are considered general voters, comprising 28,825,607 males and 27,233,945 females.

Five States, One Election Year

The electoral calendar for India is packed this year, with five states going to the polls. Besides Madhya Pradesh, these states include Telangana, Chhattisgarh, Mizoram, and Rajasthan. The outcomes of these elections will undoubtedly shape the political landscape in these states and influence national politics as well.
