Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Monday released its second list of candidates for the upcoming assembly elections in Madhya Pradesh, in which it has fielded 7 MPs including three Union Ministers. Apart from this, tickets of many leaders were also canceled. After the release of the list, former Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh and senior Congress leader Kamal Nath has fiercely attacked BJP and claimed that BJP’s defeat has been confirmed. Kamal Nath has tweeted in this regard on X (Twitter).
He says that BJP has accepted defeat in Madhya Pradesh. Today he has played the last false gamble of hope. He said, ‘The list of BJP candidates denying the claims of 18.5 years of BJP government and development of Shivraj for more than 15 years is a sure seal of internal defeat of BJP which claims to be a party of crores of workers.’
The people of MP are ready, there will be a counterattack – Kamal Nath
The Congress leader says that development has started being exposed in Madhya Pradesh. At the same time, the BJP government’s big-talking and propagandistic claims of development have today proved to be a white lie. BJP should keep only one thing in mind. This is the public, it knows everything. He says that the public will hold the account of 18 years of misgovernance and justice will be done. The people of MP are ready. There will be a counterattack on BJP.

BJP has announced 78 candidates for MP elections.
BJP has so far fielded its candidates on 78 out of 230 member assembly seats in Madhya Pradesh. The ruling party had also released the first list of candidates consisting of 39 names. In the last assembly elections, Congress had won 114 seats against BJP’s 109 and the government was formed under the leadership of Kamal Nath. In March 2020, the government fell after the rebellion of MLAs loyal to Jyotiraditya Scindia, after which Shivraj Singh Chouhan again became the Chief Minister and BJP came to power in the state. After the by-elections due to the rebellion of MLAs who switched sides, BJP currently has 126 seats in the Assembly, while Congress has 96 seats. Assembly elections are likely to be held at the end of the year.
