Indore seat is the biggest challenge for Congress

Chronicle Reporter, Indore
Newly arrived Congress State President Jitu Patwari is constantly trying to ensure that Congress performs well in the Lok Sabha elections. He is continuously touring the state to strengthen the organization and generate enthusiasm among the workers. He is not only doing organizational work in the field but is also uniting the leaders of the state but his biggest challenge is Indore Lok Sabha constituency which BJP has been winning for nine consecutive times. Not only in Lok Sabha elections, BJP has continuously achieved electoral successes in Indore district for the last 33 years.

Even in the 2023 elections, BJP has won all the 9 seats here. Barring the 1998 assembly elections, BJP has been getting more seats than Congress in all the assembly elections since 1990. In Indore district, BJP has been continuously achieving success in both District Panchayat and Indore Municipal Corporation elections for the last 5 times.

Even in the matter of district members and sarpanches, BJP was far ahead of Congress. The network of Sangh Parivar is also very strong in Indore district, which benefits BJP.

In fact, in the assembly elections held after 1990, only the 1998 election was such that Congress was successful in winning 6 out of 8 assembly seats from the district. At that time, Kailash Vijayvargiya had won from area number 2 and Laxman Singh Gaur had won from area number 4 from BJP. Otherwise, in all the elections held after 1990, the dominance of BJP was clearly visible in Indore district. Obviously, the biggest challenge before Congress will be to break the BJP stronghold of Indore. Jitu Patwari’s challenge has become more difficult due to the enthusiasm and atmosphere among the public after Indore came first in the cleanliness survey for the seventh consecutive time.
