State wise if one sees, the state of Madhya Pradesh is a crucial one given that Assembly Election in the state concluded in November 2018. The state elections saw the Bharatiya Janata Party losing the Hindi-heartland to the Indian National Congress after 15 years following anti-incumbency mainly because of agrarian distress.

Prominent leaders who managed to win the 2014 elections included former PM Atal Bihari Vajpayee’s nephew Anoop Mishra from Morena, MP BJP President Narendra Singh Tomar from Gwalior, Sushma Swaraj from Vidisha who won for the second term by a huge margin of 4,10,698 votes.
