Interacting with reporters at a programme here, Fadnavis, who addressed several rallies in MP, also said 40 seats will see close fights and this too would be a deciding factor.

Of the 5,60,58,521 voters in MP, 2,87,82,261 are males and 2,71,99,586 are females.

Answering a query, the Deputy CM said the state government was working on a legislation on the lines of the Telangana Public Security Act, which gives authorities provisions for effective prevention of certain unlawful activities of individuals and associations.

The state government is working on the Maratha quota issue and it will fulfil the commitment given to the community by Chief Minister Eknath Shinde, he said in reply to another query.
