Indore (Madhya Pradesh): With the declaration of names on the remaining three seats by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Saturday, the battle lines are clear on all the nine seats in Indore district.

BJP has fielded two sitting MLAs from two seats i.e. Usha Thakur from Mhow and Mahendra Hardia from Indore-5. The party has put up a new face from Indore-3 - IDA vice-president Golu Shukla.

BJP has denied ticket of sitting MLA Akash Vijayvargiya from Indore-3 to keep the blame of ‘dynastic politics’ at bay as party has already fielded his father Kailash Vijayvargiya from Indore-1 against Congress candidate Sanjay Shukla.
