Bhopal is considered to be the ‘toughest seat’ in MP inside the Congress camp. The seat has been held by BJP since 1989. Late President Shankar Dayal Sharma was the last Congress winner here in 1984. In 2014, BJP’s Alok Sanjar won this seat by 7,14,178 margin.

The seat is witnessing a triangular contest between sitting MP Dushyant Chautala of JJP, Brijendra Singh of BJP and Congress’ Bhavya Bishnoi. While Chautala is using development done in past five years as poll plank, the other two are counting on their legacy.
