Chauhan said that he himself accounted for the terrible electoral defeat of the BJP. He also made it clear that he would not make a claim for forming Government. It has got to be almost clear that in Madhya Pradesh there is little chance for a political drama. Chauhan also congratulated Congress leader Kamalnath for their victory.
while the Congress won 114 out of 230 seats, two seats were required to the margin of a simple majority. Right now, Bjp which won 2 seats and SP (1 seat ) and four independent MLAs have extended their support to the Congress. So the Congress would reach 121 seats. Bjp won 109 seats in the election.
