Polls in three states – Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh – saw bipolar competition between the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the Congress.
The BJP has ruled Madhya Pradesh, the largest of the voting states, for 18 of the past 20 years.

The Congress suffered a defeat in the 2018 polls and ended up with about 20 percentage points of votes in favor of the BRS. He ran the 2023 campaign under state unit chief Revanth Reddy, who targeted BRS for corruption and anti-incumbency. Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao focuses on his welfare schemes and schemes.
Karnataka Deputy Chief Minister DK Shivakumar flew to Hyderabad on Saturday, apparently in solidarity with the Congress. He alleged that BRS was trying to contact its lawmakers.
