  • To have the Total value of MLA votes we need to multiply the Value of an MLA vote with total no of MLAs (4120).

    yes

  • Rather than dividing the Total value of MLA votes [549495 x 4120] by Total number of MPs(776), Hindu has divided the Value of a MLA votes by Total number of MPs ( 549495/776).

    total votes polled were 1090300 acc. to TOI...so Total value of MLA votes remains 549495 ..there is typo from Hindu in heading "Value of an MLA's vote" and shows Total value of all MLA's votes
