Several rounds of meetings between Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chauhan and BJP high command went on, but the final decision on the names in the cabinet expansion could not be done. Therefore, there is still a cloud of suspense on the second extension of Shivraj cabinet. On Tuesday, Shivraj Singh returned to Bhopal and remained silent on the whole matter. According to the information received from the sources, lack of final consensus on the names between the states and the central leadership is the reason for the delay in cabinet expansion.
Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chauhan returned from Delhi on Tuesday morning. He went to the Chief Minister's residence and then started a meeting in the ministry. In Delhi, he met top leaders of the party, including the Prime Minister, and also sat with Jyotiraditya Scindia. But he could not increase the number of his ministers by more than five, which he was talking about last week. CM Shivraj Singh Chauhan said that the cabinet will be expanded soon. All aspects are discussed in detail. Discussion is to be held in Delhi, thereafter it will be expanded soon.
According to sources, 22 MLAs left the Congress and joined BJP, out of which 18 are Scindia supporters. The Scindia camp wants 11 ministers to be among these 18 MLAs from their quota. Then there is pressure to give the four remaining MLAs ministerial posts. That is, 15 rebels from Congress to BJP become ministers. This causes panic among BJP's seniors.
There is also a question on the formula of two Deputy Chief Ministers. Home Minister Narottam Mishra's Delhi journey from Gwalior is being linked to it. Narottam Mishra is considered the architect of the overthrow of the Kamal Nath government. According to sources, the high command is also strict about raiding a gutkha businessman in Indore and his relations with some officials. The resentment also stems from the disturbances in voting in the Rajya Sabha elections. The central leadership has repeatedly raised questions on giving special attention to certain faces in the cabinet. The organization wants newcomers. An opinion has not been formed in the power-association and organization about this.
BJP spokesperson Rahul Kothari said that "there is a metaphor in BJP about how the cabinet should be expanded." Soon its blueprint will be seen by all, but how is the Congress making the BJP stand in the box. We have not announced any formal date. ''
The ruling BJP is not able to handle its fights, the Congress is on the road. She is describing BJP as the killer of democracy. Questions are also asked on the formation of the cabinet. Seeking resignation from the Chief Minister. Congress leader and former minister Jeetu Patwari said that "Shivraj Singh is proving so crippled." Took a bag, for the name, at one door, from second to third door .. It has not been more than 100 days. What else would be worse than this. The Chief Minister should resign as soon as possible.
Before the by-elections of 24 assembly seats in the state, the BJP also has problems with the rebels. Many ministers are threatening to leave the party, while leaders like Bhanwar Singh Shekhawat are accusing Kailash Vijayvargiya of breaking the party.
