The Assembly elections in Madhya Pradesh will be held for 230 seats on November 28th whereas the result will be declared on December 11th.

With only a couple of days left for the polls, the state has been seeing high-octane campaigning by political parties. Several prominent leaders including Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Congress President Rahul Gandhi and numerous others have been holding several rallies in the state. The elections in the state are being viewed as a major political fight between senior Congress leader Arun Yadav and incumbent Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan as they will face off each other in Budhni. 

The Congress party, which is in opposition in the state of Madhya Pradesh since the year 2003, has not declared its chief ministerial candidate to take on BJP's Shivraj Singh Chouhan in the state.
