The assembly elections for the five states of Chhattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh, Mizoram, Rajasthan and Telangana were spread over 26 days in four phases, with about 8,889 candidates contesting for 679 seats.

So what will the results of these state polls mean for the BJP and the Congress?

Will the Ajit Jogi-Mayawati combine eat into the Congress’ vote share in Chhattisgarh? And will anti-incumbency work against the BJP in the heartland states of Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan?

Again, will the BJP’s vision of a Congress-mukt North east come to pass if Mizoram decides to vote out chief minister Lal Thanhawla? And will the Telangana results indicate the fate of the grand alliance against the BJP in the 2019 general elections?

In this video, our Opinion Editor Viju Cherian takes a look at all this and more.
