BJP yet to announce 8 mojor MP seats in Madhya Pradesh
BJP veteran Raghunandan Sharma has warned the party it might be falling way back behind Digvijaya Singh in campaigning.
In Madhya Pradesh, not only the fact that BJP is yet to pronounce contenders in eight major constituencies moreover it has decided to campaign in the name of PM Narendra Modi in these 'faceless' seats.
This arises at a point of time when BJP veteran Raghunandan Sharma has warned the party it might be falling way back behind Digvijaya Singh in campaigning. Congress fielded Digvijaya three weeks back, nevertheless BJP is yet to name a candidate. BJP hasn't fielded candidates in Indore, Vidisha, Guna, Sagar, Khajuraho, Dhar and Ratlam-Jhabua besides Bhopal. Moreover, Congress named its nominees for Guna, Vidisha and Rajgarh.
BJP leaders assert that there is no predicament on candidates and only "arrangements" have to be made preceding the nominations for the Lok Sabha constituencies. BJP has commenced its booth-level contact in all 52 districts to carry the 'Main Bhi Chowkidar' initiative into its major publicity campaign, commanded by the Sangh.
BJP spokesperson Rajneesh Agrawal said "We have completed our poll campaign in several constituencies. Now, party workers are in touch with booth-level participants and voters with our slogan 'Main Bhi Chowkidar'. We are receiving tremendous response to it."
Ambiguity is bedeviling at others nevertheless while some BJP representatives asserted that all is well. Sharma, who is a former Rajya Sabha MP, went public with his apprehension about the postponement in declaring the last eight candidates, and claims Congress had been "gifted" a head start on Friday. Digvijaya has completed his first phase of campaigning in Bhopal, Sharma pointed out.
"He is far ahead of BJP, which has not even announced a candidate. In such circumstances, BJP will have to suffer a big loss in this election," Sharma said.
