BJP’s Anticipated Candidate List for Madhya Pradesh Assembly Election

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is gearing up to release its fifth list of candidates for the upcoming Madhya Pradesh Assembly election, and party sources suggest that this list could be quite “explosive.” Home Minister Narottam Mishra hinted at the excitement surrounding this list, stating, “List dhamakedar hee hogi. Aage dhamake hee dhamake hone wale hain, Diwali ka tyohar aane wala hai” (The list will be explosive… expect fireworks… Diwali is ahead).

In the previous fourth list, the ruling party had already put an end to the suspense regarding Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan’s electoral fate, along with 24 of his ministers and 57 sitting lawmakers, who were all named as candidates. However, the BJP still has 94 more decisions to make out of the total 230 Assembly seats. Many of these decisions are expected to be made at the upcoming meeting of the Central Election Committee, scheduled for Sunday.

Sources within the state BJP unit suggest that around 25 to 30 Members of the Legislative Assembly (MLAs) might be dropped from the candidate list due to negative feedback. The party is likely to announce the list during the Navratri season, beginning this Sunday, in hopes that it will keep protests from leaders who do not receive tickets to a minimum, as they will be preoccupied with festival celebrations.

Among those whose political future remains uncertain are nine ministers, including Mahendra Singh Sisodiya, OPS Bhadoria, Brijendra Singh Yadav, and Suresh Dhakad, who are loyal to Union Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia and joined him in leaving the Congress in 2020. There is ongoing speculation that Jyotiraditya Scindia himself may be named as a candidate.

In Madhya Pradesh, the BJP has adopted a strategy of fielding prominent candidates with strong local connections, including Union Ministers and Members of Parliament. The potential candidature of Jyotiraditya Scindia came into focus after his aunt, Yashodhara Raje Scindia, opted out of the election due to health reasons. Scindia may contest from his aunt’s Shivpuri seat or any of the two other seats in Guna.

Meanwhile, both the Congress and the BJP have been exchanging barbs over their candidate lists. As the election in Madhya Pradesh approaches, political tensions are escalating, and the electorate awaits the unveiling of the full candidate lists from both major parties. Madhya Pradesh is set to vote in a single phase on November 17, with the results to be declared on December 3.
