BJP releases candidate lists for M.P and Chhattisgarh Elections

Must Read

In a surprising move, The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) unveiled its first set of candidates for the upcoming assembly elections in Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh. This move, coming even before the Election Commission announces the official poll dates, signals a proactive approach by the party to expedite its election preparations.

The list comprises 39 candidates for Madhya Pradesh, with its 230-member state assembly, and 21 candidates for Chhattisgarh, a state featuring 90 assembly seats. This strategic step reflects the BJP’s readiness to tackle the upcoming electoral challenges.

The decision to release the candidate list ahead of schedule was the result of a high-level meeting within the BJP’s election body, held on Wednesday. Reports indicate that Prime Minister Narendra Modi personally emphasized the significance of promptly revealing the initial batch of candidates. This provides candidates with ample time for preparation and effective campaigning. An interesting aspect of the candidate selection process is the BJP’s focus on constituencies where it recognizes its weakness.

The BJP’s candidate list for the Chhattisgarh polls boasts inclusivity by featuring five women candidates. Noteworthy among them are Lok Sabha MP Vijay Baghel, Bhulan Singh Maravi, Laxmi Rajwade, Shakuntala Singh Porthe, Sarla Kosaria, Alka Chandrakar, Gita Ghasi Sahu, and Maniram Kashyap, reflecting the party’s diverse and comprehensive approach.

A notable highlight is the political contest in Patan, where sitting MP Vijay Baghel is set to go head-to-head against his uncle, senior Congress leader Bhupesh Baghel. The assembly seat, presently held by Bhupesh Baghel, adds an intriguing layer to the unfolding political dynamics.

Another noteworthy feature is the nomination of five women candidates among the initial 39 in Madhya Pradesh. The inclusion of Sarla Vijendra Rawat, Priyanka Meena, Lalita Yadav, Anchal Sonkar, Nirmala Bhuriya, Bhanu Bhuriya, Alok Sharma, and Dhruv Narayan Singh underscores the BJP’s commitment to enhancing gender diversity in the political arena.
