BJP- Congress all set to wage real poll battle.
With the very much nearing dates of Assembly Elections in Madhya Pradesh 2018, the patent game of political word war and rivalry of the throne has begun. With the very much blame game and taking a dig at each other, the opposition as well as the ruling party is all geared up and ready with their party manifesto.
Shivaraj the best administrator
- The change in the head of the state may give rise in the speculations of creating a gap in the leadership of Madhya Pradesh.
- The very much possibility of introduction of a corrupt politician would emerge.
- The public views vouch to find out an equally honest political leader as Shivraj Singh if not him.
Madhya Pradesh stands as the Bharatiya Janata Party dominated state where people have a blind faith in the party.
Stand of BJP
The party President Amit Shah has announced that his party will fight the Assembly Election in Madhya Pradesh 2018 solely on the basis of strength of the organization and not by pre projection of their Chief Ministerial candidate. This also gave a scope of peculation to congress that the current CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan is no longer the CM face for the upcoming Assembly elections.
As soon as the ability of the Congress chief Kamal Nath was in question by the BJP, in Madhya Pradesh, the Congress Chief of party campaign Committee JyotiradityaScindia has rest assured that the ruling party will get a taste of Nath’s abilities in coming polls, while he also announced that the Congress would issue a separate manifesto for the youth.
Congress Strategy in the state
Newly appointed Congress President in Madhya Pradesh Kamal Nath is of the opinion that the party is much better organized to defeat BJP in the assembly polls 2018, to be held at the end of the year. Congress sees this contest against the BJPs organizational strength and their money power.Nath, MP from Chhindwara has been elected to LokSabh 9 times has kept the options open of contesting the Assembly Polls. The set priorities in MP are that they will strengthen the party at the village level, as elections have become much localized. With a claim of being back very well organized, Nath mentions the possibility of inclusion of former Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh Digvijaya Singh, as the former leader has large organizational knowledge of the state. Congress has also ruled out the reports of internal party fractions.
BJP Strategy in the State
After the loss of three successive bypolls, BJP now is cautious and Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan is making concerted efforts to expand the style of social engineering to reach out to the vast section of the society. Nearly five months to go for the elections, Chouhan is targeting labourers and farmers. Registration of labourers and the unorganized sectors, by giving them benefits of government policies would be done. Moreover, Chouhan has also said that government has crafted plans to provide a house to every registered labourer in the state’s urban areas. In rural areas land and cash to build up the same would be given. Besides special attention to farmers and labourers, the ruling government is also providing Rs. 1000 each to more than 2.5 lakh special backward scheduled tribe families.
With the time ripe, the face of the Chief Ministerial candidates for Congress is JyotiradityaScindia and senior leader Kamal Nath and BJP has not yet declared its CM face. The theory goes, like all it depends on situation and differs from state to state whether a party is supposed to declare its candidate or not. Both the concerned parties are confident and hence it’s the majority vote share that would help get a CM.
