Indore (Madhya Pradesh): With the population of Madhya Pradesh rising, one would naturally assume that the number of voters in state’s assembly constituencies would also increase. 

However, there are three assembly constituencies in Madhya Pradesh where the number has been dipped since the last assembly elections in 2018.  The highest numbers of electors have declined in Singrauli by 4,064 voters followed by Jabalpur West by 3,834 voters and Jabalpur Cantonment by 2,400 voters. 

Each assembly constituency of Madhya Pradesh has seen a surge in its elector numbers except these three constituencies. The Huzur constituency in Bhopal district has seen the highest increment by 73,957 in the number of voters followed by Rau and Sanwer constituencies in Indore district by 66,448 voters and 55,704 voters respectively. 

While there are different reasons for the drop in the number of voters in Jabalpur West and Jabalpur Cantt, Singrauli collector Arun Kumar Parmar said that a large number of employees of NTPC, Northern Coalfields Limited and other PSUs were transferred or retired and their names had been removed from the electoral list. “New voters have also been added but their numbers may be less,” he added. 

The assembly seats in Singrauli and Jabalpur Cantt. had been won by BJP for the last three elections. The Jabalpur West constituency had been won by Congress for the last two elections. The BJP has fielded Jabalpur MP and former state president Rakesh Singh to clinch this seat from Congress. He is contesting against the Congress candidate and two times sitting MLA Tarun Bhanot.
