Road to 2024: Kaun banega CM? For BJP, it is a paradox of choice

NOW THAT it has won the big battle and swept Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and Rajasthan elections, making it all the more difficult for the Congress to narrow the gap ahead of the 2024 Lok Sabha polls, comes the big task for the BJP to decide who will lead the party governments in Bhopal, Raipur and Jaipur.

The resounding victories have made sure that the central leadership, which fought the elections in Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s name – or, alternatively, “the party’s” – will get to choose its person. It also allows the high command a free hand in bringing fresh faces to the fore in the state.

There have also been suggestions that the party could shift Raman Singh, Chouhan and Raje to the Centre to effect a complete generation shift in the state units.

However, the party realises the choice is more difficult than on paper, as what it does will have a bearing on the Lok Sabha polls. Currently, the BJP has absolute dominance when it comes to parliamentary seats in these three Hindi-heartland states – holding 28 of 29 constituencies in Madhya Pradesh, 25 of 25 in Rajasthan and 9 of 11 in Chhattisgarh.
