Lotus blooms in desert land; 'Modi Modi' chants everywhere in Rajasthan

NEW DELHI: The elections in five crucial states were touted as the 'semi-final' to the impending Lok Sabha elections of 2024. As the clock nears 1 pm on Sunday, the results are already settled with no big drama or upsets in the cards. BJP has morphed into a raging bull winning all three crucial states that cover the Hindi heartland with Congress getting the saving grace only in Telangana. A Landslide victory in Madhya Pradesh, a royal return in Rajasthan, and the icing on the cake that is Chhattisgarh ensured a full BJP monopoly on Sunday.

BJP earlier feared anti-incumbency to hit Madhya Pradesh but were taken for surprise as the numbers have now gone berserk and are showing complete saffron superiority. BJP’s confidence has gone triple fold with the 'coup' in Chhattisgarh that saw the congress bastion falling apart and even chief minister Bhupesh Baghel trailing from his Patan constituency.

Amidst the internal squabbles, Congress and Gehlot were popular in Rajasthan. The government tried numerous ways including shedloads of freebies to attract the masses. However, it should be deemed that the freebies weren't enough to suppress the strong anti-incumbent wave that was circling Rajasthan. BJP is returning in royal style in the desert land with Vasundhara Raja at the helm.

With victory almost a certainty in three states, celebrations have started in the BJP office in New Delhi. 'Modi Modi' slogans are being blared across the office in Deen Dayal Upadhyay Marg, New Delhi. Meanwhile, with the Congress victory in Telangana, newcomer Revanth Reddy is the talk of the town and is purported to be the next Chief Minister of the state.

In Telangana too, BJP have reasons to celebrate since they have upped their game to reach 8 seats from just one they received back in 2018.
