A total of 1,300 candidates are contesting in this phase of elections. Voting is taking place in a total of 124 constituencies. This includes 10 states and 2 union territories.

The election in the Anantnag-Rajouri constituency in Jammu and Kashmir has been postponed to May 25.

Voting is happening today in 26 seats of Gujarat, 14 seats of Karnataka, 11 seats of Maharashtra, 10 seats of Uttar Pradesh, 8 seats of Madhya Pradesh, and 4 seats of Assam.

If we talk about 2019, out of these 124 seats, BJP won in 77 seats, Congress won in 4 seats, and others got 19 seats.

Now, let’s talk about some seats that everyone is keeping an eye on.

In MP’s Guna seat, Jyotiraditya Scindia, who served as a Member of Parliament from Congress from 2002 to 2014, is now contesting from BJP’s ticket. In 2019, Scindia had to face defeat from this seat.

From MP’s Vidisha seat, former Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan is contesting.

From MP’s Rajgarh, another former Chief Minister, Digvijay Singh, is contesting from the Congress ticket. He says this will be his last election.

In Maharashtra, a big face-off will be seen in Baramati, where for the first time, voters will choose between Pawar’s daughter-in-law and daughter, Supriya Sule vs. Sunetra Pawar.

The Sangli seat will be very interesting as well, where the grandson of former Chief Minister Vasant Dada Patil, Vishal Patil, is contesting as an independent candidate. Vishal Patil was expected to be Congress’ candidate. However, when this seat was given to Uddhav’s Shiv Sena as part of the alliance, he decided to contest independently.

Anchor: From Mainpuri, SP chief Akhilesh Yadav’s wife, Dimple Yadav, is contesting.

From Gujarat’s Gandhinagar seat, Home Minister Amit Shah is contesting. It should be noted that some candidates from this seat were allegedly pressured to withdraw their candidature.
