India’s BJP leads in 3 of 4 states in key regional elections

India’s governing right-wing Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is leading in three of four in key regional polls, indicating a big boost to Prime Minister Narendra Modi ahead of the general elections slated to be held within six months, Aljazeera reported.

The heartland states of Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, southern state of Telangana and northeastern Mizoram state voted last month in the provincial elections.

Vote counting began in four of the five states on Sunday morning, while counting in Mizoram is expected on Monday.

At midday (9:30 GMT) on Sunday, the BJP was leading in all three heartland states, which send 62 members to parliament, trends from the counting of votes showed on TV channels. Final results are expected by the end of the day.

The election results of the five states are expected to indicate voter mood ahead of the national elections in May in which Modi is eyeing a third consecutive term.
