The Election Commission is likely to announce post-Diwali dates for the assembly elections in four states and the national capital on Thursday. Delhi is set to go to polls along with four states – Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and Mizoram – in 2013. These assembly elections are being touted as the semi-finals before the country’s general elections in April-May 2014. The Congress has been out of power in Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh for 10 long years with the BJP ruling there since 2003.

In Delhi, Sheila Dikshit has created a record of being the longest serving woman chief minister in independent India. In the Delhi assembly polls, she is seeking a fourth term. Her opposition now includes not just the BJP but also the Aam Aadmi Party. Rajasthan, where the Congress is in power, has witnessed a keen tussle with BJP over the years. The Congress is also the ruling party in Mizoram.
