NEW DELHI: Shivraj Singh Chouhan, the former Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh and a five-time Member of Parliament (MP), is poised for his sixth term in Parliament after winning the Vidisha constituency by an impressive margin of 817,479 votes. 

According to the latest update from the Election Commission of India (ECI) on their official website, Chouhan, a four-term Chief Minister, has amassed over 1 million votes, significantly ahead of the Indian National Congress’ (INC) Pratap Bhandu Sharma, who has garnered 900,000 votes.

Chouhan was a key figure in the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)’s campaign as Chief Minister during the 2023 Madhya Pradesh Vidhan Sabha Elections. However, despite the BJP forming the government in the central Indian state, the 65-year-old was not selected for another term as Chief Minister; instead, the party chose Mohan Yadav for the position.

But Shivraj Singh Chouhan wins in Vidisha with over 8 lakhs margin this time with the formation of the BJP government, Shivraj Singh Chouhan is again expected to hold a prominent position at Modi’s helm. Madhya Pradesh stands out as the party’s stronghold, maintaining a lead in all 29 Lok Sabha seats in the state and confirming victory in 2 seats already.

 The BJP’s Shankar Lalwani won the Indore Lok Sabha seat by a record majority of 1,175,092 votes. More than 200,000 voters chose ‘None of The Above’ (NOTA), in the absence of a Congress candidate in Indore. 

Vidisha constituency witnessed polling on Phase 3 of the 2024 Lok Sabha Elections held on May 7 in the constituency.

As the Lok Sabha Election results turn out, forget ‘400 paar’ BJP could not even surpass the 300-seat mark with only winning 240 seats alone and 293 with NDA sinking its dream. On the other hand, surprisingly, India Alliance has won 232 seats this time and Congress alone has gathered 98 seats.
