During the Bihar assembly elections , by-polls for 56 assembly seats across the country will be held on November 3. Among these half seats are from Madhya Pradesh. Both parties- BJP and Congress have fielded its candidates at all 28 seats. In MP, by-elctions naccessiated because 25 MLAs left the Congress and three MLAs died. According to political pundits in MP's bye-election the BJP is fighting to save its power and congress is trying to regain the lost power when the Chief Minister Kamal Nath was forced to resign in March this year. Also, the credibility of Jyotiraditya Scindia, who left the Congress for BJP , is also at stake. Among the 28 seats on which the bye-elections are being held, 16 seats are from the Gwalior-Chambal region. They are said to be Scindhia's supporters.
According to information, for the first time, be-elections are being held on such a large scale in the state. The reason for this is the political reshuffle in the state in March. In fact, on 10 March this year, 22 Congress MLAs along with Jyotiraditya Scindia, say good bye to the party and joined the BJP. After this, the Kamal Nath government came into minority and he was forced to resign.
The resignation of the Congress MLAs left 22 seats vacant. Later in July, Congress MLAs from Bada Malahara, Nepanagar and Mandhata also say good bye to Congress and joined the BJP. In addition, 3 MLAs died. That means a total of 28 assembly seats became vacant. \
MLAs, who left Congress and shake hand wtth the BJP are-
Pradyuman Singh Tomar (Gwalior) , Imarti Devi (Dabra), Mahendra Singh Sisodia (Bamori), govind Singh Rajput (Surkhi), Prabhuram Chaudhary (Sanchi), Tulsiram Silavat (Sanwer), Edal Singh Kanshana (Sumawali), Raghuraj Singh Kanshana (Morena), Girraj Dandautia (Dimani), Kamlesh Jatav (Ambah), O.P.S Bhadauria (Mehgaon), Ranvir Jatav (Gohad), Munnalal Goyal (Gwalior west ), Raksha Santram Sarounia (Bhander), Jasmant Jatav (Karera), Suresh Dhakad (Pohri), Jajpal Singh Jajji (Ashoknagar), Brijendra Singh Yadav (Mungavali), Bisahulal Singh (Anuppur), Manoj Narayan Chaudhary (Hatpipalya), Rajwardhan Singh (Badnawar) , Hardeep Singh Dung (Suvasara), Pradyuman Singh Lodhi (bada Malhara), Sumitra Devi Kasdekar (Nepanagar), Narayan Patel (Mandhata) left Congress and joined the BJP. Banwari Lal Sharma (Jaura), Manohar U00twal (Agar) and Govardhan Dangi (Biaora) passed away.
Of the 28 assembly seats in the state by-elections, 27 were previously held by the Congress. In such a situation, it is a question of great prestige for the Congress. For a majority in the state of 230 member states, 116 seats are required. If the BJP performs better in the by-elections then its government will be more stable. On the other hand, the Congress is trying to win 20 or more seats, so that once again the power in the state can be reversed.
