Even though Modi mentioned Shivraj Singh Chouhan at a rally in Gwalior today amidst Congress taking pot-shots at the CM for being ignored by his party in the forthcoming elections, the BJP has so far not announced his candidature

“I am not hungry for any post.”

“You won’t find a Bhaiyya like me, you will remember me when I go away.”

These two statements by Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan in the last 48 hours in public rallies have become the cynosure of all attention in the poll-bound state. Chouhan’s candidature has so far not been announced by his party, which has also decided not to go with any Chief Ministerial face in the forthcoming assembly elections.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi named Chouhan in his public meeting in Gwalior on Monday, along with Union ministers Narendra Singh Tomar and Jyotiraditya Scindia. Congress had earlier taken a dig at Chouhan asking why the PM had not named him during his last visit to the state.

At a public meeting in Khargone two days ago, Chouhan said he was not hungry for any post. “I have no greed for any post. I only run this government so that I am of use to the women and children of the state. I am working to help everyone,” the CM said. In Sehore on Sunday, the CM said he does not run a government but a family. “All of you are my family. You won’t find a brother like me. You will miss me when I go away,” the Chief Minister told people in Sehore.

Meanwhile, the Congress has started taking potshots at the CM, asking whether these are his words of farewell after being ignored by his party in the elections.

To be fair, the CM in his speeches has also made a case on what all he will do if the public chooses him again. Chouhan has said he will give more to the people in his next term.

At a rally on Monday, Chouhan said he does not run a government but a family, and he is a brother to the women in the state. “Arrangements have been made to provide gas cylinders to the sisters for Rs 450. District collectors have been instructed to make gas connections in the names of sisters. Big electricity bills are being reduced to zero. Ladli Behna Yojana has brought changes in the lives of sisters and their respect in family and society has increased. I start every programme by washing the feet of sisters and daughters and giving them respect so that people understand that we should respect sisters and daughters in our day-to-day conduct,” the CM said on Monday.

Lok Sabha Polls Will Be Dynastic Politics & Corruption Versus Development Fight: Nadda

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president JP Nadda has said the upcoming Lok Sabha elections will be a battle between dynastic politics and corruption on one side and development on the other.

Addressing party workers from Mumbai’s western suburbs during his visit to the metropolis on Wednesday, Nadda said under Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s leadership, India is well on its way to become the third largest economy in the world from fifth now.

Attacking anti-BJP opposition parties, he alleged that they were either dynastic or steeped in corruption.

“You have to reach out to voters and seek their support for a fresh mandate (for BJP at the Centre). First-time voters in the last ten years have seen only development and not corruption like previous governments,” Nadda asserted, referring to the decade-long rule of the Modi administration that started in 2014.

He said the Lok Sabha elections, likely to be held in April-May, will be a fight between dynastic politics and corruption on one side and development on the other.

Dynastic politics and corruption will lead to destruction, Nadda said and highlighted the BJP’s development agenda.

Earlier in the day, Nadda met BJP office-bearers from all the 36 assembly constituencies in Mumbai besides party MPs and MLAs from the metropolis.

In his address, Nadda asked BJP leaders from Mumbai to ensure the party ideology reaches the last person in society and urged them to give a befitting reply to opposition attacks on the saffron outfit and its government.

He advised BJP leaders to extensively use social media and seek support of prominent personalities on issues of public interest.

Nadda also chaired the Election Management Committee’s meetings for all the six Lok Sabha constituencies in Mumbai as part of preparations for the national polls.

In the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, the BJP and its then-ally, the undivided Shiv Sena, won three seats each in Mumbai. In the Maharashtra assembly polls held in October that year, the BJP won 16 of the 36 seats in the city, while 14 were bagged by the Sena.

The state, where the BJP is in power in alliance with the Shiv Sena led by Chief Minister Eknath Shinde and the Ajit Pawar-headed NCP, has a 288-member legislative assembly.

BJP to Release Documentary on Alleged Atrocities Against Women in West Bengal’s Sandeshkhali

This comes amid a raging war of words between the BJP and the TMC over alleged incidents of rape and harassment of women in Sandeshkhali in West Bengal’s North 24 Parganas district ahead of the Lok Sabha elections

The BJP is set to release a documentary on Sandeshkhali on Thursday with the party intensifying its attack on West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee-led TMC government over the alleged incidents of atrocities and sexual assault on women there.

The “exclusive” documentary titled ‘The Sandeshkhali Socker – The Big Reveal’ will be released Thursday morning at 9 am, the BJP said in post on X, asking Banerjee in Bangla, “Didi ke bolo aaro koto ‘Sandeshkhali’ (Tell didi how many more Sandeshkhali like incidents)”.

This comes amid a raging war of words between the BJP and the TMC over alleged incidents of rape and harassment of women in Sandeshkhali in West Bengal’s North 24 Parganas district ahead of the Lok Sabha elections.

The riverine Sandeshkhali area — situated on the borders of the Sunderbans, about 100 kilometres from Kolkata — has been witnessing protests after the local women accused absconding Trinamool Congress (TMC) leader Sheikh Shahjahan and his supporters of land grab and sexual assault under coercion.

Interestingly, ‘Didi Ke Bolo’ is a campaign launched by the TMC after the 2019 Lok Sabha polls to provide a platform for the people of West Bengal to directly raise their concerns or lodge complaints with Chief Minister Banerjee.

The TMC’s move was reportedly aimed at countering the BJP in the state.
