gaining control of resource rich areas like MP, Raj, CG is a big boost to war chest. railways, OFBs, roads, forests, mines, tourism, logistics (nagpur is a prime hub) ... lots of people can be squeezed for money now.

for a few years now they were reliant on sipping blood from bengaluru only.

if you look at this prediction posted on reddit a while back and compare results it went mostly as expected - the middle class and itvity areas of blr all went with bjp. peaceful and low income (cash based voting) went with INC. INC did have a few good candidates. https://i.redd.it/ylwieishyvu01.png
