Assembly Election Results 2018: Government formation in Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Telangana, Chhattisgarh, Mizoram

After a long drawn out counting battle on Tuesday, the Congress made inroads into Madhya Pradesh, the heartland of India, winning 114 out of 230 seats. The party will stake claim to form the government with BSP support later in the day. Congress also secured big wins in Rajasthan and Chhattisgarh and is set to form the governments in the two states. The party, however, lost its last Northeast bastion in Mizoram after winning just five seats. The Mizo National Front (MNF) captured the power in the Northeast state, winning in 26 of the 40 assembly constituencies. K Chandrashekhar Rao-led TRS swept the Telangana polls, decimating the Prajakutami – the grand alliance of Congress, Telugu Desam Party (TDP), Communist Party of India (CPI) and Telangana Jana Samithi (TJS) – on its way.
