Congress Leaders Convene in Delhi to Finalize Candidates for Upcoming Madhya Pradesh Polls

The Central Election Committee of the Congress party has gathered in the national capital to conduct a crucial meeting aimed at finalizing candidates for the upcoming Madhya Pradesh Assembly elections, scheduled to take place later this year. Prominent leaders, including Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge and Congress MPs Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi, are among those present at the meeting.

The meeting is being held at the Congress headquarters in New Delhi and is a significant step in the party’s preparations for the electoral battle in Madhya Pradesh. Other key figures in attendance include Congress leaders KC Venugopal and former Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath.

Earlier this month, on October 3, the Congress screening committee convened to deliberate on potential candidates for the Madhya Pradesh assembly polls. As the electoral contest intensifies, both the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the Congress have ramped up their campaigns, engaging in political sparring.

The campaign efforts have seen the involvement of top leaders from both parties, with Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Home Minister Amit Shah leading the BJP’s campaign, while Rahul Gandhi, Mallikarjun Kharge, and other prominent Congress leaders spearhead the party’s efforts to win over voters in the state.

The BJP has already released two lists of candidates for the Madhya Pradesh polls, featuring several party heavyweights in the state, including Union Ministers Narendra Singh Tomar, Prahlad Singh Patel, and Faggan Singh Kulaste.

The Congress, on the other hand, is determined to challenge the BJP’s hold on Madhya Pradesh and has deployed Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, the party’s national general secretary, for rallies and outreach in the state.

The Madhya Pradesh Assembly elections, likely to be scheduled sometime between October and November this year, will see voters electing representatives from 230 Assembly constituencies. Madhya Pradesh is one of five states set to hold elections at the end of this year, making the political landscape in the state a key focus for both major political parties.
