Bhopal: The by-election to be held in 24 seats in Madhya Pradesh is making it difficult for the BJP central leadership and CM Shivraj Singh Chauhan. The team of Maharaj Jyotiraditya Scindia of Gwalior is also considering this as a question of his honor. Out of the 22 MLAs who left the Congress, some MLAs from the non-Scindia faction are waiting for Raj Bhavan's call to become ministers, while CM Shivraj Singh Chauhan, Union Minister Narendra Singh Tomar, BJP Vice President Kailash Vijayvargiya's MLAs are also awaiting for same moment. It is being told that now Shivraj's cabinet will be expanded after June 7.
The ministers of the previous government are hopeful, so are some new faces and among all, the BJP seems to be aiming for success in at least 22 seats in the 24 by-elections. If the Rajya Sabha elections are held on June 19, Jyotiraditya Scindia will get a second victory. Earlier on April 29, Scindia won the first victory by appointing two of his five former MLAs as ministers in the Shivraj government.
For the third and fourth targets, he is also putting full emphasis. Jyotiraditya had planned a Bhopal tour on June 1 for this purpose. His close friends say that everything is going well according to Scindia. His special may become former MLA minister of Congress. Three-four more rebel MLAs can be sworn in as ministers. In this way only 21-22 people are likely to become ministers out of BJP MLAs, leaders or former ministers.
