In Madhya Pradesh this time also there will be neither loss nor profit situation for both Congress and BJP, that is, BJP will win two and Congress will win one.
Of the three seats to be held on June 10 in Odisha, the ruling BJD is likely to retain all three seats depending on the numbers. It is also most likely to win the required by-election due to the resignation of its sitting member Subhash Chandra Singh, to be held on June 13.
The ruling TRS in Telangana is likely to retain all the two seats and win the bypolls.
In Chhattisgarh, the tenure of a member of BJP and Congress is coming to an end and the ruling Congress is hoping to win both the seats.
