Rajya Sabha BJP MP Sanjay Kakade claimed that the BJP's losses in Rajasthan and Chhattisgarh were expected, but the trends in Madhya Pradesh have come as a surprise on counting day. "I think it's because we forgot the issue of development that Prime Minister Narendra Modi took up in 2014, and turned our focus to statues, name-changing and the Ram temple," news agency ANI quoted Mr Kakade as saying.

The Congress had managed to garner a near-unassailable lead in Chhattisgarh by Tuesday afternoon, and it seemed well set to form the next government in Rajasthan. In Madhya Pradesh, the two parties were still playing a game of political see-saw.

Assembly elections: Prominent winners and losers

Mr Kakade was referring to the renewed push for the Ram temple by right-wing groups, including the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) and the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP), besides heightened efforts to attract Hindu votes ahead of the assembly elections.

Mr Adityanath had lately gone on a name-changing spree, providing historical places such as Allahabad and the iconic Mughalsarai Railway Station with names better suited to Hindutva sensibilities.

While the opposition party was shown to score a clear majority in Rajasthan, with 110 seats to BJP's 78, the two parties were predicted at neck-and-neck levels in Chhattisgarh.
