ECI announces poll dates for five states

Giving a wakeup call to all political parties which have stakes in Madhya Pradesh, Mizoram, Chhattisgarh, Rajasthan and Telangana, the Election Commission of India has announced the dates of the assembly elections for these states.

In Madhya Pradesh and Mizoram, the elections will take place in November 28. In Rajasthan and Telangana, the elections will occur in December 7. But, in Chhattisgarh alone, the election will be conducted in two stages: in November 12 and in November 20.

Coincidently, the Rajasthan unit of the BJP has chosen this day to organise a huge function to mark the conclusion of their state-wide tour aimed to strengthen the party prior to the commencement of election campaign “Gaurav Yatra” and the beginning of their election campaign in the state. Several prominent leaders such as Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP President Amit Shah will participate in the event.

Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh and Madhya Pradesh are very crucial for the BJP as the Saffron Party is the ruling party in these states. Meanwhile, as far as the Grand Old Party is concerned, Mizoram is their first priority, as it is their last bastion left unconquered by the rightists in that part of India.

Anyway, in Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh and Madhya Pradesh, the real battle will be between the Grand Old Party and Saffron Party.

Notably, no surprises are expected from Telangana. The TRS, the party which rules the South Indian state at present, will surely retain their dominance in the state, if no miracles happen.
