Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh: In preparation for the Madhya Pradesh Legislative Assembly elections, the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) has readied a list of approximately 50 candidates, while the Samajwadi Party (SP) has a list of around 100 hopefuls. However, both parties are holding off on announcing their candidates, waiting for the Congress to release its list. If the Congress doesn’t field candidates in accordance with the expectations of these parties, they may change their selected nominees for certain constituencies.
Akhilesh Yadav’s Public Rally in Bhopal
The national president of the SP, Akhilesh Yadav, is soon scheduled to hold a public rally in Bhopal. Before this event, the party is in the process of announcing candidates for approximately 100 seats. The state president of SP, Ramayan Singh Patel, revealed that the rally in Bhopal had already been decided, but due to some family reasons, it has been postponed. The party is preparing to release the second list within a week.
SP Eyeing 100 Assembly Seats
It’s worth noting that this month, they have already held public rallies in Rewa and Khajuraho. The SP is optimistic about its chances on around 100 legislative assembly seats, with most of them located in districts bordering Uttar Pradesh. In the first phase, they have already declared the names of seven candidates.
BSP to Release 50 Candidates in Third List
On the other hand, the BSP’s state coordinator and Rajya Sabha member, Ramji Gautam, stated that the party would soon announce the names of around 50 candidates in its third list. Like the SP, they are also waiting for the Congress to unveil its list of candidates. The Congress may release its first list within a week, as discussions on candidate names have taken place in Delhi.
Both the BSP and SP are closely monitoring the Congress’s candidate selection process as they aim to finalize their own nominees strategically. The political landscape in Madhya Pradesh is heating up as these parties prepare for the upcoming elections, eagerly anticipating the Congress’s move.
