Bhopal (Madhya Pradesh): The BJP has begun to make a strategy for electioneering in which many leaders of the state will participate.
Besides Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan, Union Ministers Prahlad Patel and Narendra Singh Tomar and party’s national president Kailash Vijayvargiya have begun campaigns in various constituencies.
The party is, however, in a dilemma over asking former chief minister Uma Bharti to take part in the electioneering.
Uma recently sent a proposal through social media that she would campaign wherever Chouhan wants her to do so.
Despite her wishes to campaign, the party is yet to take a decision on whether she should do electioneering for the party or not.
Uma’s demand for OBC women’s reservation has angered the party’s central leadership. This is the reason why the party’s state organisation is unable to take a decision on her.
Uma is considered influential in the Bundelkhand region and in the Lodhi-dominated areas in the state.
So, several candidates are demanding the party to deploy her to campaign for them.
Because the party failed to take a decision, it cannot send her to any constituency for electioneering.
According to sources, she may leave for Kedarnath in the first week of November because of the party's dilemma over deploying her to campaign.
