Madhya Pradesh: BJP expels 53 leaders from the party for ‘indiscipline’ and ‘anti-party activities’

Days before elections in poll-bound Madhya Pradesh, the BJP has dismissed 53 ‘rebel leaders’ for ‘indiscipline’ and ‘anti-party activities. The party has dismissed defectors like senior leader Sartaj Singh, former minister Ramkrishna Kusmaria and Bhind MLA Narendra Kushwah ahead of the assembly elections.

According to the reports, Former Minister Sartaj Singh was earlier denied a ticket by BJP from the Seoni-Malwa constituency had joined Congress. The two-time MLA had cried in public after his name did not appear in the candidate’s list. The Congress had immediately named him as the Opposition party’s nominee for the Hoshangabad Assembly seat.

Former minister Ramkrishna Kusmaria had announced that he will contest as an independent candidate. He has also been thrown out of the party along with Bhind MLA Narendra Kushwah, Former Gwalior mayor Samiksha Gupta, Lata Mehsaki, Dheeraj Pateria and Raj Kumar Yadav. Samiksha Gupta had announced that she has quit the BJP to contest as an independent candidate in the upcoming elections.

The ruling BJP government led by Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chauhan has been challenging the Congress to secure its hold on one of its most prized states, Madhya Pradesh. Shivraj Singh Chauhan has been the Chief Minister of the state since 2003 and he is fighting the assembly election to record his fourth successive term as Chief Minister.

While Congress party is a divided house in the Madhya Pradesh. One faction belonging to Kamal Nath and others loyal to Jyotiraditya Scindia are battling against each other to prove their control on the state Congress unit. Senior Congress leader Digvijaya Singh has been struggling a silent war by recently admitting that Congress will lose votes if he campaigns or gives any speeches.

The elections to  230-member Madhya Pradesh Legislative Assembly will be held in a single phase on November 28 and the results will be announced on December 11, 2018.
