BJP Leadership Shuffle: Bhajan Lal Sharma, Mohan Yadav, and Vishnu Deo Sai Take Charge as Chief Ministers in Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, and Chhattisgarh

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) officially announced Bhajan Lal Sharma as the new Chief Minister of Rajasthan, following a conclusive BJP Legislature Party meeting held in Jaipur yesterday. The meeting, which commenced at 4 pm, saw the presence of all 115 BJP MLAs at the party office, marking a crucial moment in Rajasthan’s political landscape.

The selection process was overseen by Defence Minister Rajnath Singh, Rajya Sabha member Saroj Pandey, and BJP National General Secretary Vinod Tawde, appointed as observers by the BJP to ensure a smooth and transparent selection of the Rajasthan Chief Minister. The saffron party emerged victorious in the Rajasthan Assembly polls on December 3, securing a clear majority and displacing the Congress party.

Notably, the BJP’s strategy in selecting chief ministers has taken an interesting turn in states like Chhattisgarh and Madhya Pradesh, where the party also claimed victory. In Chhattisgarh, tribal leader Vishnu Deo Sai was chosen, while in Madhya Pradesh, Mohan Yadav, the party’s OBC face and former education minister, secured the chief ministerial position. Both choices surprised many as the BJP opted for fresh faces over seasoned leaders.

Mohan Yadav, a three-time MLA from Madhya Pradesh’s Ujjain South, is set to take the oath as the chief minister at Bhopal’s Lal Parade Ground. In Chhattisgarh, Vishnu Deo Sai, a four-time Lok Sabha MP and three-time state BJP chief, will be sworn in as the CM at the Science College ground in Raipur.

In Madhya Pradesh, Rajendra Shukla and Jagdish Devda are expected to be sworn in as deputies of Mohan Yadav. However, in Chhattisgarh, the BJP is yet to make an official announcement regarding the deputy CMs. Speculations suggest that Arun Sao and Vijay Sharma might assume these roles alongside Sai.

The swearing-in ceremonies in Bhopal and Raipur are anticipated to witness the presence of political heavyweights, including Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Union Home Minister Amit Shah, and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath. The BJP’s choices for chief ministers in these states reflect a strategic shift, opting for fresh and dynamic leadership over experienced veterans.
