Before the election, the Congress hosts a meeting of the campaign committee at Kamal Nath’s house

The Congress Election Campaign Committee met on Wednesday evening in Bhopal, the state capital, in advance of the legislative assembly elections in Madhya Pradesh. Kamal Nath is the state congress president.

After the meeting, former chief minister Digvijay Singh told the reporters, “We will fight and we will unite.”

Former state minister Kamleshwar Patel provided further information regarding the meeting, stating that it included a discussion of the approach to be taken for the impending state elections.

“Our plan is to educate the people about the BJP government’s mismanagement and corruption. He attacked the state’s current BJP administration, saying it had “cheated the farmers, women, and laborers.”

Patel remarked in response to the Neemuch incident, where stone-throwing occurred during the BJP’s Jan Ashirwad Yatra, “This is the work of BJP solely. People are upset about corruption and inflation. Making accusations has now become a BJP staple.

Kantilal Bhuria, a former union minister who was also present at the meeting, said that the Election Campaign Committee meeting will take place on Thursday and that candidates may get their tickets between September 20 and September 25.

“Congress Rajya Sabha Member Randeep Surjewala talked on every topic. We also spoke about our next plan. Tomorrow will also see the meeting of the election campaign committee. Tickets may be purchased from September 20 to September 25,” Bhuria said.

The former Union Minister said that the BJP was responsible for the stone-pelting incident in Neemuch. Congress is to blame, they say. The term “Congress” is only used by members of the BJP and the RSS (Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh). The Congress does not criticize individuals.

Omkar Singh Markam, the general secretary of the Madhya Pradesh Congress, said that the conference covered the topic of defending the nation and the state against the BJP.

“There was a talk on protecting the state and nation from the BJP’s plot…To continue holding onto power, the BJP invents all sorts of pretenses, Markam remarked.

The name India is in our heartbeat, Markam added in reference to the India vs. Bharat argument that has stirred up political debate. The BJP represents their avarice and self-centeredness.Is BJP against India?

The previous leader of the opposition in the Lok Sabha, Sonia Gandhi, sent a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and said, “It is in the interest of the country.”

Vikrant Bhuria, the president of the state youth congress, who was also present at the meeting, said that since people are furious, the congress is trying to connect with them.

In the state, people are irate. We are attempting to contact the public because of this. The Jan Ashirwad Yatra of the BJP will be opposed. Additionally, the Congress will tour the whole state. All top executives have been assigned the responsibility for it, he added.

The Congress leaders were also urged to be ready in the event that the BJP decided to hold concurrent elections, the young leader said.

“Preparation was also requested in the event that the Lok Sabha and Vidhansabha elections were conducted concurrently. For the previous year, Kamal Nath has been planning for the One Nation One Election, according to Bhuria.

The BJP is not prepared to tolerate the Neemuch event, Bhuria remarked in response to the occurrence. They’ve angered people. The pain of the populace and farmers is not being recognized by the BJP. The Dalits, tribals, women, and jobless are visibly enraged. The Congress will win 170 seats if the BJP maintains its stance.

According to Bhuria, Kamal Nath has received 20 to 25 names from the Youth Congress for the next elections.

“The Youth Congress has submitted 20 to 25 candidates to Kamal Nath, and the screening committee will make the selection. On the ground, the Youth Congress has battled. Its executive team is widely renowned. In the election campaign, the Youth Congress would have a significant impact, Bhuria said.

Madhya Pradesh is one of the five states holding assembly elections later this year to choose 230 state representatives. With 114 seats in the 2018 Madhya Pradesh assembly elections, Congress won the most seats overall, followed by BJP with 109 seats.

However, the Congress administration lost its majority in 2020, which was followed by several MLA resignations. Shivraj Singh Chouhan was then re-elected as chief minister and the BJP went on to constitute the state’s administration.
