Union Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia Meets Protesting BJP Supporters Over Ticket Denial

In a noteworthy turn of events, Union Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia engaged with aggrieved BJP supporters who had gathered to protest the denial of a ticket to BJP leader Munnalal Goyal for the upcoming state elections. The meeting took place outside the Jai Vilas Palace in Gwalior, Madhya Pradesh, and came about following the release of the BJP’s fifth list of candidates for the Madhya Pradesh assembly polls.

Protests Erupt Over Ticket Distribution

Protests and demonstrations by disgruntled BJP workers flared up after the party revealed its fifth list of 92 candidates. Among the candidates listed, Maya Singh was chosen to represent Gwalior East, prompting objections from supporters of Munnalal Goyal. The protesters’ primary plea was to have Goyal reinstated as the candidate, asserting that he was the best choice to secure victory in the Gwalior East constituency.

A Plea for Victory and Unity

The supporters emphasized that their objection was not against the party or the existing candidate but rather aimed at ensuring the party’s success in the upcoming election. They believed that nominating someone unable to walk was akin to offering the seat to the Congress party on a platter.

Union Minister’s Response

Union Minister Prahlad Patel expressed disappointment over the protests staged by BJP workers in Jabalpur regarding ticket distribution. He condemned the incidents as unfortunate and regrettable, highlighting the internal tensions caused by candidate selection.

Candidates for the Upcoming Elections

The BJP’s fifth list of candidates featured several prominent names, including Madhya Pradesh ministers Usha Thakur and Mahendra Singh Sisodiya, as well as Mousam Bisen, the daughter of Minister Gaurishankar Bisen. The list also included former ministers Jayant Kumar Malaiya and Antar Singh Arya, who were awarded tickets.

BJP’s Preparations for the Elections

As the BJP continues to announce candidates, they have now declared names for 228 out of the 230 seats. The two remaining candidates for the Guna (Scheduled Caste) and Vidisha seats are yet to be disclosed.

Madhya Pradesh is set to hold its assembly elections on November 17, with the vote counting scheduled for December 3. In the 2018 assembly elections, the Congress won 114 seats with a 40.89% vote share, while the BJP secured 109 seats with a vote share of 41.02%. The Congress initially came to power with Kamal Nath as the Chief Minister. However, Jyotiraditya Scindia and 22 loyalist MLAs shifted to the BJP in 2020, leading to the formation of a BJP-led government with Shivraj Singh Chouhan as Chief Minister.
