He polled 9,23,302 votes while his Congress rival received 3,82,373 votes, the Election Commission data showed.

Scindia, currently a BJP member of the Rajya Sabha, had won from Guna as a Congress candidate in 2002, 2004, 2009 and 2014. He lost to the BJP's K P Yadav in 2019, and later joined the BJP in March 2020 after falling out with the state Congress leadership.

Guna was earlier represented by his grandmother late Vijayaraje Scindia and his father late Madhavrao Scindia.
