The reports of a few surveys have come out. A few surveys are still going on. The BJP has conducted two surveys. The central leadership has conducted one and Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan has done another.
The party is conducting one more survey. Similarly, president of the Madhya Pradesh Congress Committee (MPCC) Kamal Nath has already conducted a survey. Nath has also conducted a survey on the performance of his legislators.
He is still conducting a survey through which he will assess the position of the Congress in 230 assembly constituencies.
The BJP as well as the Congress is plugging away at the electorate’s mindset one year before the polls. They are also assessing the performance of the legislators in their respective constituencies.
According to sources, out of 127 BJP legislators, the position of 40 is not good in their respective areas. Most of these legislators belong to Vindhya, Gwalior, Chambal and Bundelkhand regions.
Similarly, out of 96 legislators, 27 are not in a good position, and most of them belong to the Malwa-Nimar region.
From the surveys of both of parties, it is clear that the next assembly election in Madhya Pradesh is going to be tougher than the 2018 polls.
