BJP winners in Telangana Election 2023: The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) registered impressive victories in Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Chhattisgarh in the just concluded Assembly Elections 2023. The Congress was successful in snatching away Telangana from the K Chandrasekhar Rao-led Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS) and the Zoram People's Movement (ZPM) decimated the ruling Mizo National Front (MNF) of Chief Minister Zoramthanga in Mizoram. The Assembly Elections in these five states were held between November 7 and November 30. ZPM's Lalduohma is going to be the next Mizoram CM while Telangana Congress chief Anumula Revanth Reddy is all set to replace KCR on December 7. The BJP, however, is still considering potential Chief Ministers of the three Hindi heartland states. Meanwhile, in Telangana, amid the massive victory of the Congress party and the humiliating drubbing of the BRS, everyone is underestimating the BJP factor. The party not only won 8 seats this time in the state but also clocked an impressive vote share of almost 14 per cent. Pawan Kalyan's Jana Sena Party (JSP), the BJP ally, couldn't win a single seat and lost deposit in all 8 seats (Kukatpalle, Tandur, Kodad, Nagarkurnool, Khammam, Wyra, Kothagudem and Aswaraopeta) it contested in understanding with the saffron party. The JSP registered its best performance in Kukatpalle where Mummareddy Prema Kumar received 39,830 votes (15.88 per cent). Election Coverage
