Madhya Pradesh: Senior BJP leader Babulal Gaur considering contesting upcoming elections on Congress ticket

In the recently concluded state assembly elections, BJP had given a ticket to Gaur's daughter in law, Krishna Gaur, to contest from Govindpura seat.

Senior BJP leader and former Madhya Pradesh chief minister Babulal Gaur threw a surprise when he said that he is open to contesting the upcoming Lok Sabha elections from a Congress ticket. His statement comes in the midst of allegations that Congress is indulging in horsetrading in the state. Senior Congress leader and another former Madhya Pradesh chief minister Digvijaya Singh reportedly met Gaur and offered him a ticket. He also predicted “major political changes” in the coming days.

Gaur, if he takes up the offer, may contest from Bhopal. Digvijaya Singh had paid him a visit on 18th January. Gaur had created a flutter in December, too, when he met Congress President Rahul Gandhi during the swearing-in ceremony of Kamal Nath. Digvijaya Singh had reportedly arranged the meeting between the two. Rahul Gandhi had also offered Gaur to join Congress.

In the recently concluded state assembly elections, BJP had given a ticket to Gaur’s daughter in law, Krishna Gaur, to contest from Govindpura seat. Krishna had defeated Congress’ Girish Sharma by 46,359 votes.
