New Delhi, Following the departure of Vijaybhai Rupani from the post of Chief Minister in a ‘seemingly sudden’ decision six months ago in Gujarat, the BJP decided to go for elections by adopting a no-repeat theory and the party is going to Karnataka, Haryana, Madhya Pradesh and Tripura next year. Even in the states including, there are indications that the BJP caucus is going to change the Chief Minister with no-repeat theory.
At present, the BJP’s agenda is first and foremost in Karnataka, where ministers have been embroiled in controversy and after the resignation of a senior minister, especially Aam Aadmi Party chief Arvind Kejriwal, who suddenly entered the state’s politics and promised a clean government, the BJP has to worry immediately. Bommai was made the Chief Minister but belongs to the original Janata Dal and only to the Lingawat community and B.S. Being close to Yeddyurappa, he was appointed CM. Even if it is made, it cannot be won by contesting the elections under his leadership, now the search for his alternative has started.
BS Santosh can be sent to Karnataka from Delhi. In the same way, there could be a change of leadership and government in other states, especially in Madhya Pradesh and Haryana.
In Madhya Pradesh, Shivraj Singh Chauhan has become the Chief Minister for the fourth term and the party had lost power to the BJP in 2014 and after Scindia’s defection, Shivraj has regained power and the BJP’s position in this state is tough.
Jyotiraditya Scindia could not make a big difference and the BJP is shocked that Uma Bharti has become active again and started attacking the Shivraj government.
In Haryana too, the BJP lost power in the last elections and formed a coalition government with Chautala’s provincial party. Is embroiled in controversy including local jobs and hence the Gujarat pattern can be applied in this state too.HS
