The result of the recent elections in five states has ended the winning streak enjoyed by the BJP during most of the past five years.
The BJP has lost its position of power in Madhya Pradesh and Chattisgarh, where it had been the ruling party for the past 15 years. It has also been voted out in Rajasthan, after 5 years. It has been replaced by the Congress Party in these three states. The Congress Party has been voted out in Mizoram, replaced by the Mizo National Front. It is only in Telengana that the ruling party, Telengana Rashtriya Samiti, managed to retain its position of power.
