Uma Bharti missing from BJP’s list of star campaigners

Bhopal: The absence of Uma Bharti from the BJP’s list of star campaigners for the Lok Sabha polls in Madhya Pradesh is notable, especially considering her prominence in state politics. While Suresh Pachauri, who recently switched over from the Congress, has been included in the list, Bharti’s exclusion suggests a shift in the party’s strategy or priorities.

Bharti’s decision not to contest elections for the next two years and focus on the rejuvenation of the Ganga river indicates a shift in her own political engagement. However, she has made it clear that she won’t retire from politics, leaving her future role within the BJP uncertain.

The BJP’s selection of star campaigners, including prominent leaders like Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Union Home Minister Amit Shah, and others, reflects the party’s emphasis on key figures to bolster its campaign efforts in Madhya Pradesh.

With polling scheduled in four phases across the state, the BJP’s campaign strategy appears comprehensive, with a mix of national and state-level leaders rallying support for its candidates. The BJP’s dominance in the state, winning 28 out of 29 seats in the 2019 Lok Sabha polls, underscores its strong position, although it faces competition from the Congress, which is yet to announce candidates for some constituencies.

Overall, the exclusion of Uma Bharti and the inclusion of Suresh Pachauri in the BJP’s campaign lineup signal strategic decisions aimed at maximizing electoral gains in Madhya Pradesh.
