The desert state will decide if it wants to give another chance to incumbent chief minister Vasundhara Raje or will a new face wear the crown.

"We will surely win 140 seats", the CM-in-waiting has commented.

The Madhya Pradesh High Court has disposed of a plea of a Congress leader who had expressed his concern over the alleged lack of sufficient security in some districts in respect of polled/unused electronic voting machines (EVMs) and Voter-verifiable paper audit trail (VVPAT) in the Assembly election in the State.

Some exit polls predicted the rise in the number of BJP seats in Telangana State Assembly.

The elections also hold significance for the Congress, which is out to challenge the BJP's rule in the states even while protecting its last bastion in the North-East.

Originally expected to shut down in August 2019, the service will now shut down in April 2019 instead. The company also said it would inform affected users, including "any enterprise customers".

The exit polls have predicted a fractured mandate, with the ruling Congress being reduced to 8-12 MLAs in the 40-member assembly, whereas, the Mizo National Front winning 12-16 seats - well short of the majority mark. A party has to win 116 seats if it has to form a government in the State.

Rajasthan is an interesting state when it comes to predicting poll trends.

The Opposition meeting is likely to be attended by Congress chief Rahul Gandhi, UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi, Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) chief Sharad Pawar, Trinamool Congress (TMC) supremo Mamata Banerjee, National Conference (NC) chief Farooq Abdullah, Communist Party of India (Marxist) general secretary Sitaram Yechury and Communist Party of India (CPI) general secretary S Sudhakar Reddy.

The Congress, on the other hand, is looking to topple the BJP government with top party leaders like Kamal Nath and Jyotiraditya Scindia in the fray for the chief ministerial candidate.

Nationally, it could the Congress expand United Progressive Alliance and bring more parties in its fold against the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance. He has invited the leaders of all the non-BJP parties.
