Assembly election results Mayawati says BSP will support Congress in Madhya Pradesh Rajasthan

The results in the northern states of Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh and Madhya Pradesh could force the federal government run by Modi's Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) to raise spending in the countryside, where more than two-thirds of India's 1.3 billion people live.

Mr Gandhi's journey, who in current round of Assembly elections addressed over 82 rallies in five states, has not been easy.

Correspondents say losses in these polls are a factor of anti-incumbency in the states and are not a major cause for worry for the BJP. This is a shift of power to a "more conservative and vernacular elite" which seems to have escaped the Congress. In Rajasthan, it led by 0.5 percentage point.

"A resurgent Congress combined with opposition..." In what may be considered to be a nail-biting vote counting, the results still remain too close to call, during the time of writing this article. It would be interesting to see if the BJP may defy tradition and CM Vasundhara Raje will break the cycle and win a second term, or the Congress will regain lost ground in the 200-member assembly. Of this, 75 seats were previously held by the BJP. The two parties, all throughout the day have been exchanging the top spot in the battleground state.

Top BJP leaders including Prime Minister Narendra Modi and national party president Amit Shah have yet to comment on the poor showing of their party.

In Tuesday's results, though the Congress lost Mizoram and failed to perform in Telangana, its wins in India's heartland overshadowed the setbacks and are likely to help the Congress re-energise its party workers.

Seats for scheduled castes (13 percent of the population) and scheduled tribes together account for 43 percent of the state assembly's 90 seats.

Of 199 seats in the Rajasthan assembly, the Congress had won 99 seats. "There won't be any big issue of chief minister", he said. "The people of Chhattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan were so fed up with the wrong policies of the BJP government".

When asked about the chief ministerial candidate, Nath brushed it aside.
