listen to the news
Whether it is the assembly elections in Madhya Pradesh or the Lok Sabha elections, only one name of the Congress party continues to be discussed all the time. That name is former head of state minister and strong leader Digvijay Singh. But this time Singh has kept a total distance from the civic body elections. He is not seen in any advertising or making any statements. However, the absence of Diggi Raja is not seen as an outrage but as a strategy of Congress.
In this year’s civic elections, the Congress party has entered the fight with force. Kamal Nath and his team are harassing the BJP on all fronts. But former CM Digvijay Singh is not yet visible at the helm of the corporate election. Singh is always in the discussion from his controversial statements to campaign methods. It is because of the statements that the BJP is increasingly becoming an attacker on the Congress party. Therefore, the party must bear the weight of the elections. This is the reason why this time instead of appearing in front, Digvijay Singh takes responsibility for making his candidates win from behind the scenes.
Madhya Pradesh Congress Party sources say the municipal elections are the semifinals of the 2023 assembly elections. That is why the Congress party has gotten into the fight with all the work done. Kamal Nath and his team reunite after campaigning to win the candidates. As for Digvijay Singh, instead of campaigning, he is trying to convince the rebels to go door to door to stop the factionalism of the party. The candidate for mayor of Bhopal is from the Vibha Patel Singh camp. But they have only gone to his preaching once. Instead of Singh, Suresh Pachauri and PC Sharma have gone out to camp in Bhopal. In Bhopal, the two leaders are seen campaigning from councilor to mayor. While Digvijay Singh plays an important role in the coordination between the party leaders. From behind, he is dedicated to preparing the electoral strategy together with the leaders and workers of all the big cities.
Digvijay celebrating workers returning home
Journalist and lead writer Brajesh Rajput, who oversees Madhya Pradesh politics, says in a discussion with Amar Ujala that Kamal Nath and Digvijay Singh have decided their role in Madhya Pradesh’s civic elections. Kamal Nath and his team are campaigning all over Madhya Pradesh. While Digvijay Singh is engaged in the work of strengthening workers at the grassroots level and persuading disgruntled workers. Singh had also had the same responsibility in the 2018 assembly elections. Even then Kamal Nath was a big face of the party. Singh took on the responsibility of strengthening the organization.
Recently, former Chief Minister Digvijay Singh also had a meeting in the Congress office. In this, he had clearly told the workers that those who are angry, are clearly told that Kamal Nath ji has given the ticket to whoever got the ticket in the civic elections and if anyone cuts the ticket, then Digvijay Singh has cut the ticket. ticket. These disgruntled workers should come and talk to me directly. Those party workers who are angry, I will celebrate it by going home. After that, he also went to the houses of the angry workers of Bhopal and persuaded them. After that, he also devoted himself to electoral tasks. It is certainly true that, compared to the past, it is rarely seen in the campaign. Because somewhere they feel that if I’m going to campaign in the election, somewhere the party will suffer. That is why he is seen avoiding a lot of publicity.
The BJP is also in dilemma over Diggi’s absence
Since he is not at the head of Digvijay Singh in the civic elections, this time the BJP seems to be in a dilemma. Every time the BJP puts Congress on the dock under the pretext of Digvijay Singh’s tenure. But the BJP does not have a chance to launch a direct attack due to Singh’s absence. However, the BJP also knows that Digvijay Singh is playing an important role from ticket distribution to the campaign.
Digvijay Singh was instrumental in the Congress party’s victory in the 2018 assembly elections in Madhya Pradesh. Scindia was in charge of the star campaign. For this reason, the Congress won a great victory at Gwalior-Chambal. But in the rest of Madhya Pradesh, Digvijay Singh had strengthened the party’s roots. It was their control over the workers that brought power to the party. Even after the separation of Scindia, Singh stood firm with Kamal Nath.
