It is ding-dong battle in MP

Bhopal: Contrary to exit poll predictions that gave the Congress a clear edge in Assembly elections, the Congress and the ruling BJP were involved in a nail-biting contest for power on Tuesday.

As officials counted millions of votes polled in the November 28 election, trends from centres where the votes were counted put the Congress ahead of the BJP at times and the BJP ahead of the Congress at other times, keeping everyone guessing.

Both Congress and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leaders claimed they were poised to win a majority in the 230-seat Madhya Pradesh Assembly. The BJP has ruled Madhya Pradesh, like Chhattisgarh, for 15 long years.

The first trends from postal ballots put the BJP candidates in the lead before reversing the trend and putting the Congress ahead of others.

Then began a see-saw battle, making it a nail-biting fight.

Thousands of BJP and Congress activists were gathered in all counting centres, cheering every time their candidate took the lead.
