Bhopal (Madhya Pradesh): Congress party was reduced to 66 seats after recently held Assembly election in the state. It lost 37 seats because small political outfits upset its applecart.

One such political outfit Bhartiya Adivasi Party won one seat, though.

Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP), Samajwadi Party (SP), Gondwana Ganatantra Party (GGP), independent candidates played the spoilsport for Congress.

The most surprising defeat for Congress was in Lahar Assembly constituency from where its Leader of Opposition Dr Govind Singh lost to BJP candidate Ambrish Sharma Guddu by margin of 12,397 votes.

Here, independent candidates Rajendra Singh Solanki and Prakash Gond received 31,005 votes, 10,480 votes respectively.

In Dimni, Congress candidate Ravindra Singh Tomar was defeated by BJP candidate Narendra Singh Tomar by margin of 55,131 votes. BSP candidate Balveer Singh Dandotiya polled 54,676 votes.
