Hoshangabad (Madhya Pradesh): Madhya Pradesh is all set to hold the second round of voting for the Lok Sabha Election 2024 on April 26. Voting will begin across six seats, including Tikamgarh, Damoh, Khajuraho, Satna, Rewa, and Hoshangabad, at 7 a.m. on Friday.

Key Contenders

BJP's Darshan Singh Choudhary will contest against Congress' Sanjay Sharma for the Hoshangabad Lok Sabha seat. The BJP fielded its three-time MP, Uday Pratap Singh, in assembly elections and gave Lok Sabha tickets to Choudhary.

Though Congress' Sharma holds good popularity in the BJP's traditional seat, Hoshangabad, the saffron party's charm will provide strong support to Choudhary.
