In three of the five state Assembly elections, the BJP prevailed. It won in Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, and Chhattisgarh.
Surprisingly, the BJP in Madhya Pradesh selected Mohan Yadav as Chief Minister, benching prominent figures. The Yadav community member appointed as Chief Minister is evidence of the BJP's activity. Primarily, it indicates that the current Chief Minister, Shivraj Singh Chouhan, is gradually losing prominence despite being the public face of the state.
And in the recently concluded assembly elections in Rajasthan, the BJP won 115 out of 199 constituencies and qualified to form the government. While the names of many BJP leaders were being floated for the post of Chief Minister of Rajasthan, to no one's surprise, first-time MLA Bhajanlal Sharma was selected as the Chief Minister.
Similarly, BJP won a landslide victory in Chhattisgarh. BJP won 54 out of 90 assembly constituencies and won the government with absolute majority. Tribal leader Vishnu DeoSai has been chosen as the new Chief Minister of Chhattisgarh.
For this the strong contenders were former Chief Minister of Chhattisgarh, Dr. Raman Singh, Arun Chav Durg. BJP leaders including MP Vijay Bagel and former IAS and BJP general secretary O.P Chaudhary.They are all now marginalized.
It appears that Modi is emphatic that the BJP should not have a strong state-level face other than himself. Thus, the BJP has decided to replace the faces of the party in the states with fresh faces. The Delhi administration and Prime Minister Modi are against giving the BJP state-level personas.
For instance, Yeddyurappa represented the BJP in Karnataka. Let's imagine he was given a dummy chief ministership and ignored. In light of this, it appears that Prime Minister Modi has adopted the Brahmastra, or the idea that he alone should represent the BJP to the public. Let's see who takes home the victory in the 2024 elections, Modi or INDIA alliance.
