Bhopal (Madhya Pradesh): The winning margins declined in the assembly constituencies of Speaker Narendra Singh Tomar and eight ministers of the Madhya Pradesh state government. Although the BJP secured victories in all 29 Lok Sabha constituencies in the state, the vote share for BJP candidates in these ministers constituencies was notably lower compared to the assembly elections.

During the 2023 assembly elections, these ministers achieved substantial winning margins. However, in the recent Lok Sabha elections, they failed to replicate this success within their own constituencies, marking a significant decrease in their winning margins. Vidhan Sabha speaker Narendra Singh Tomar, the MLA from Dimani assembly seat under Morena LS constituency, won his seat by 24,461 votes in the assembly elections, but the BJP's Shivmangal Singh Tomar achieved a reduced margin of 16,024 votes in the LS elections.
