Assam has the highest number of Lok Sabha seats (14) in the North East.

In the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, the Bharatiya Janata Party won 9 seats; the Congress secured only 3 seats.

Bihar has 40 Lok Sabha constituencies.

In the 2019 elections, the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance captured 39 out of 40 seats.

The BJP itself claimed 17 seats, while its allies, the Janata Dal-United and the Lok Janshakti Party, secured 16 and 6 seats respectively.

In the 2014 and 2019 Lok Sabha elections, the BJP proved to have a strong hand in Chhattisgarh.

Maharashtra with 48 Lok Sabha seats is the second largest contributor to the Lower House of Parliament, after Uttar Pradesh.

In the 2019 elections, the BJP won 23 seats while the undivided Shiv Sena got 18.

The Nationalist Congress Party retained four of its seats.

The Congress won only one seat in the state.

In 2014, the BJP-Shiv Sena alliance won 41 seats.

The BJP swept the 2019 Lok Sabha elections in Madhya Pradesh by winning 28 out of 29 seats. The Congress's sole success came in Chhindwara.

In the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, the BJP won 24 of Rajasthan's 25 seats.

In the 2019 elections, the DMK won 24 out of Tamil Nadu's 39 seats.

This time, it may be even easier for the DMK because of the vote division between the AIADMK and BJP as they are not contesting together.

In the 2014 and 2019 general elections, the BJP won all of Uttarakhand's 5 Lok Sabha constituencies.

The BJP dominated the 2014 and 2019 general elections in Uttar Pradesh, which sends 80 members to the Lok Sabha.

In the 2019 elections, the BJP won 62 seats. Two seats were won by its NDA partner, the Apna Dal (S), giving the alliance a substantial 50% share of the state's votes.

This success was a continuation of its impressive performance in the 2014 elections, where the BJP alone won an impressive 71 seats in UP.

In the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, the Trinamool Congress won 22 of Bengal's 42 seats. The BJP made significant progress from previous elections by winning 18 seats.

The Congress, on the other hand, suffered a setback, winning only two seats.
