New Delhi: Similar to the Bihar Assembly polls, the counting of votes for the by-elections in Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, Gujarat, Karnataka and other states has begun. The BJP has taken the lead in the early stages of by-elections in Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh and Gujarat. BJP leader Jyotirraditya Shinde’s existence has been eroded mainly by the by-elections in Madhya Pradesh. However, as the BJP is leading in 20 out of 28 seats, Jyotiraditya’s charisma seems to be on the rise.
In Madhya Pradesh, by-polls are being held for 28 seats, with the BJP leading in 20 constituencies. So, Congress is leading with 7 seats and Bahujan Samaj Party with one seat. The BJP needs to win at least 9 to 10 seats to retain power in Madhya Pradesh. Congress needs to win 28 out of 28 seats. However, given the current situation, it is not difficult for the BJP to sustain the government.
Shinde maintained the fort
During the Ain Corona period, Jyotiraditya Shinde revolted against Kamal Nath and joined the BJP. As a result, the Congress lost power and Shivraj became the Chief Minister again. Pro-Shinde MLAs resigned and by-elections began. In this, Shinde had to face the challenge of increasing the BJP’s presence. On the other hand, Kamal Nath had to step down from power. As this constituency was mainly Shinde’s stronghold, a similar battle was fought against Shinde by Kamal Nath. Twenty-five Congress MLAs had resigned. These seats were vacated due to the death of three MLAs. The BJP had again given tickets to 25 MLAs who broke away from the Congress and joined the BJP. Of these, 14 are ministers in the Shivraj government. Jyotirraditya Shinde was the BJP’s mainstay to retain power. Looking at the lead in the by-elections, it would not be an exaggeration to say that Jyotirraditya Shinde did it.
In Uttar Pradesh, meanwhile, by-polls were held for seven seats. In the by-elections for eight seats in Gujarat, the BJP is leading in seven seats while the Congress is leading in one seat. In other states, the BJP is leading in the by-elections for two seats in Karnataka. In Jharkhand, by-polls are being held for two seats, with the BJP leading in one seat and the Congress in the other.
