The Congress leader, referring to the assembly elections and by-elections held in the country since the 2019 Lok Sabha polls, pointed out that BJP’s winning percentage had drastically reduced.

“381 State Assembly segments have had Assembly elections (330) or Assembly by-elections (51) held since 2019 Lok Sabha elections, where there were BJP candidates. In the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, BJP candidates won 319 out of these 381 assembly segments.
