The exit poll by Republic TV-Matrize has given an edge to the BJP, predicting that the ruling party will win between 118 and 130 seats. The prediction for the Congress is that it will emerge victorious in 97-107 seats and other parties will get 0-2.

Jan Ki Baat has predicted that the December 3 results could go either way. It has projected 102-125 seats for the Congress, 100-123 for the ruling BJP and five for Others.

Today's Chanakya exit poll, however, projected a sweeping victory for the BJP with 151 seats in the 230-member assembly. It gave only 74 seats to the opposition Congress, five to others.

Assembly polls were held in these five states on November 7 (Mizoram and first phase Chhattisgarh), 17 (Madhya Pradesh), 25 (Rajasthan) and 30 (Telangana).

The ruling BJP and the opposition Congress on Thursday claimed they would win the Assembly polls in Madhya Pradesh.

"I have been saying from the beginning and also during the campaign that Prime Minister Narendra Modi affection and leadership, (Union Home Minister) Amit Shah's strategy, (BJP president) JP Nadda's leadership and the hard work of party workers as well as the schemes of the state government will result in a huge victory for the BJP," said chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan.

"We always felt we will win and we are winning. The love and affection shown by our sisters, nieces and nephews (referring to citizens of the state) has been tremendous. At times, more women were present at our rallies than men. There was no 'kaante ki takkar (tough fight). Our ladli behanas have removed all the thorns," Chouhan said.

In a post on social media platform X, MP Congress chief Kamal Nath said, "I have always said the country is run by a vision and not by television. Many exit polls have shown that the Congress is forming the government in the state, while some others are saying something different."

"You (party workers) should not get carried away by all these things and should remain focused on the aim like 'Arjun' on the counting to ensure each and every vote cast in favour of the Congress is counted for the party. This will ensure formation of the Congress government with a landslide victory," Nath further said.

Veteran Congress leader Digvijaya Singh, however, pointed out exit poll predictions are varied and nothing can be said about them.

The BJP has been in power in Madhya Pradesh since 2003, except for a 15-month period between December 2018 and March 2020 when Kamal Nath headed a Congress government.

It fell in March 2020 and the BJP came back to power under Shivraj Singh Chouhan.

In the 2018 assembly polls, the Congress won 114 seats, while the BJP emerged victorious on 109 seats in the 230-member assembly.
