CM slams Cong for unpreparedness for polls

Bhopal:  Chief Minister Mohan Yadav has taken aim at the Congress party regarding the imminent Lok Sabha elections, asserting that the opposition party is ill-prepared, with many of their candidate names still undisclosed.

CM Yadav indicated his intent to partake in the nomination rally of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) candidate Rajesh Mishra from the Sidhi Lok Sabha constituency on Wednesday.

“With the Lok Sabha election dates announced on March 16, I am pleased that our party has promptly declared the majority of candidates, including those from Madhya Pradesh. In a healthy democracy, we desire all parties to be robust, but unfortunately, the Congress seems to be struggling. To my knowledge, they have yet to finalize names for 18 candidates. The prevailing sentiment in Madhya Pradesh is in favor of Prime Minister Narendra Modi,” CM Yadav said.

He continued, “Our candidates are commencing their filing process today. I am personally overseeing the submission of forms for the Sidhi candidate. Accompanying me is Senior Minister Prahlad Patel. We believe that swift participation of candidates in democracy tilts the election in their favor. The multitude of issues facing Congress seems insurmountable.”

It is noteworthy that the BJP has unveiled candidates for all 29 Lok Sabha constituencies in Madhya Pradesh, whereas the Congress has only named 10 candidates thus far.

Lok Sabha elections in Madhya Pradesh are slated for the first four phases of the seven-phase schedule, on April 19, April 26, May 7, and May 13.

Commencing on Wednesday, the filing of nomination papers for the first phase will continue until March 27. The initial phase encompasses six Lok Sabha constituencies: Sidhi, Shahdol, Jabalpur, Mandla, Balaghat, and Chhindwara.
