Modi’s pledge of Congress-mukt Bharat is likely to deter as Congress appears to be ready for a comeback in the Assembly elections. Modi-Amit Shah duo which seemed unbeatable throughout with its clean sweep in elections will now possibly face a defeat.
Congress, on the contrary, might taste a win, according to CVoter Survey. The Survey reveals that Congress might vanquish BJP in Rajasthan, win Telangana and win Madhya Pradesh by a small margin. Chattisgarh might turn into a cliffhanger.
The possibility of Congress to claw its way back lies in its consistency and BJP’s probable crumble because of the anti-incumbency growing anger against its two CMs — Vasundhara Raje and Shivraj Singh Chouhan of which the slogan “Modi tujh se bair nahin, Raje teri khair nahin” is an evidence.
The survey predicted that Congress might return to power in Madhya Pradesh after 15 years on the back of 42.3 percent vote share. BJP is expected to win over 107 seats, down from 166, and a clear majority of 116 seats to the Congress.
It is also projected that Congress-TDP alliance in Telangana might win a clear 64 seats.
The opinion poll did not give a clear majority to any party in Mizoram. It is expected that the Mizo National Front will lead with 17 seats, followed by the Congress with 12 seats.
Chhattisgarh might witness a close contest with 41 seats to the Congress while BJP with 43 seats.
Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala called the opinion polls “heartening and interesting”. He added, “We hope to cross the two-thirds mark in Rajasthan and hope to get close to 140 seats in Madhya Pradesh and over 50-mark in Chhattisgarh. The coalition of Congress will romp home confidently, trouncing the BJP stooge TRS in Telangana. Congress will also retain Mizoram,”
Whereas the BJP spokesperson Bizay Sonkar Shastri, outrightly rejected the opinion polls. He said the BJP was heading for a “big victory” and that the campaign by “our magic man”, Narendra Modi, would give a further boost to the party’s prospects.
