Bhopal, Sept 19: Senior Congress leader Aslam Sher Khan on Thursday said that there would a close contest between his party and the ruling BJP in Madhya Pradesh Assembly elections slated later this year.
There is a "neck-and-neck race between the Congress and the BJP" right now for the upcoming Assembly elections, Aslam said.
"The state government has failed on all fronts and the BJP is living in a dream world if it thinks that it can win the elections," said the leader, who is a former hockey Olympian.
There is a neck-and-neck race between the Congress and the BJP, Aslam said.
The Congress stands to gain from the appointment of Union minister Jyotiraditya Scindia as the chairman of the party's state poll campaign committee, he said.
Some more committees have also been formed under the chairmanship of various leaders, Aslam said, adding that these will also help the Congress during the polls.
