Shivraj Singh Chouhan Graciously Accepts BJP’s Choice, Congratulates Successor Mohan Yadav

Bhopal: Outgoing Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan extended congratulations to his successor, Mohan Yadav, named by the BJP after the party’s sweeping victory in the state. Chouhan, known for his welfare schemes, expressed confidence in Yadav’s ability to set new records in public welfare under Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s guidance.

Mohan Yadav, a former cabinet minister under Chouhan, expressed gratitude and pledged to fulfill his responsibilities with the support of the party and the people. Yadav’s two deputies are Jagdisgh Devda and Rajesh Shukla.

The BJP, breaking a nearly two-decade incumbency, secured a strong mandate with 163 seats, leaving the Congress far behind at 66 seats. Chouhan’s ‘Ladli Behna’ scheme was credited with swaying voters in favour of the BJP.

The announcement of central observers, including Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar, K Laxman, and Aasha Lakda, raised speculation about a potential new Chief Minister for Madhya Pradesh. The last time central observers were appointed in the state was in 2005.

While the BJP retained power in the state during the 2008 and 2013 assembly polls, the Congress briefly returned to power in 2018, only to face upheaval in 2020 when Jyotiraditya Scindia and 22 MLAs joined the BJP. The Congress government fell, and Chouhan returned as Chief Minister.
