The nation has finally seen the results of the highly anticipated election, which show that the BJP has won three out of four states.
In Madhya Pradesh, the BJP held onto its majority. Rajasthan and Chhattisgarh have also been taken from the Congress by the BJP. Even in Telangana, where the Congress has won, the BJP's ascent has been more impressive than it was in the previous election.
The five state election campains were launched with the slogan, Semil Finals for the Lok Sabha Election. With the results announced, there are now more states ruled by the BJP. BJP rule existed in ten states, Madhya Pradesh included. Now that the BJP has taken control of Chhattisgarh and Rajasthan, the party rules 12 states total. These findings demonstrate that the BJP is still popular in the northern Indian states.
Congress-ruled states have shrunk. At present it is in power in only 3 states including Karnataka, Himachal Pradesh and Telangana is which it has currently seized power.
Although the number increased to 12 in the BJP-ruled states, the BJP could not gain a foothold in the southern states of Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Telangana, Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh.
But what do the results of the 5 state elections mean for the Congress? Will the influence of the INDIA Alliance decrease? How will Congress face the 2024 Lok Sabha elections? That is the question posed to the Congress, which leads the India Alliance.
INDIA needs to keep the alliance intact so that the incumbent BJP government is defeated in the Lok Sabha elections. Without a doubt, one of the Congress's primary preparations for the Lok Sabha election will be resolving internal party strife.
BJP has advanced to the final after winning the semifinal. In the end, the Congress-led INDIA Alliance will face off against the BJP, even if it concedes defeat now. Like in the cricket World Cup, victory can change or remain the same. The two teams are from India afterall. Congratulations and may the stage be set for the grand finale!
