The Congress is losing in three states and in a sort of consolation winning in one, according to the early trends of the assembly election results in four states today.
The BJP has crossed the halfway mark in Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Chhattisgarh. The Congress, however, has crossed the halfway mark in Telangana.
One of the reasons for the Congress’s poor performance is said to be the loss of support from tribal voters. Even in Madhya Pradesh the Congress appears to be facing an erosion of tribal voters.
