Congress state unit president Kamal Nath on September 25 mocked Madhya Pradesh CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan for being excluded from the BJP’s election campaign. He added that even the Prime Minister is bothered by the double speed of MP CM Chouhan’s lie machine.
Earlier, when Home Minister Amit Shah was asked about the CM face for Assembly polls, he said the party would decide on the chief minister’s post only after the elections.
Meanwhile, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will today address a ‘Karyakarta Mahakumbh’, a mega congregation of BJP workers in Bhopal in Madhya Pradesh. The event will take place at Jamboree Maidan in Bhopal. Since the past few weeks, the BJP has taken out the yatras, a mass contact programme, from five different places in Madhya Pradesh, where elections are being held this year. The ‘Karyakarta Mahakumbh’ is being organized on the birth anniversary of party ideologue Deendayal Upadhyay. According to a senior BJP member, around 10 lakh workers are expected to participate in the mega-municipality.

In the 2018 Assembly elections, the BJP missed another opportunity to come to power as the Congress won 114 out of 230 seats, restricting the saffron party to 109. The Congress led by Kamal Nath formed a coalition government with the support of Independents, BSP and SP. However, the dispensation collapsed after 15 months when a string of Congress MLAs led by Jyotiraditya Scindia, now Union minister, joined the saffron party, paving the way for Shivraj Singh Chouhan’s return as chief minister.
