Chouhan, Tomar win as BJP sprints towards huge victory in MP

Bhopal, Dec 3 (UNI) Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan and Union Agriculture and Farmers Welfare Minister Narendra Singh Tomar emerged victorious in their respective constituencies even as the saffron camp won 61 of 230 Assembly segments and was leading in 105 at 6 pm in Madhya Pradesh where counting is progressing amid three-tier security on Sunday.
Chouhan’s astronomical victory margin exceeded a lakh votes.
The principal-opposition Congress – which was fancying its chances just days back – has 15 constituencies in its kitty, is ahead in 48 but simultaneously losing even ‘traditional’ bastions. A notable exception is Sailana that has been taken by Mr Kamleshwar Dodiyar (Bharat Adivasi Party).
