Congress had in December last year came to power after 15 years. In state polls that held in December last year, Congress fell short of a majority by 2 seats. Congress ended up with 114 seats in 230 assembly seat state. However, with the support of the BSP and Samajwadi Party, it is currently in power.
Bhartiya Janta Party won 109 seats while BSP, Samajwadi Party, and Independent won 2, 1 and 4 seats.
The development comes a day after almost all exit polls on Sunday predicted Prime Minister Narendra Modi to return in power.
Most of the exit polls predicted a clear Majority to Bharatiya Janata Party-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) with above 300 seats.
Reacting on the Exit Polls, Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister said these Exit Polls will once again prove to be wrong. They are just for the entertainment of the BJP.
