Although Madhya Pradesh is one among the BIMARU ( Bihar Madhya Pradesh Rajasthan Uttar Pradesh - BIMAR means sick in Hindi) states it is developing rapidly in recent times. After the bifurcation of Chhattisgarh, MP showing considerable amount of development in education, IT industry, Road connectivity, health industry and so on.
As the state elections are due in late 2018, Congress party has already appointed Mr. Kamalnath as president of congress party in the state. As BJP is painting the entire country one by one in saffron, congress also tightening its belt and doing necessary actions to grab Madhya Pradesh from BJP after 15 long years. Congress Party's Jyotiraditya Scindia son of late Mr. Madhav Rao Scindia is appointed as party's campaign chief. But Congress's chief command is worried to declare either of these two as a chief ministerial candidate , as it may intensify the internal fights within the party.
On the other hand BJP's 3 time chief minister Mr. Shivraj Singh Chauhan is not letting any stone unturned to retain his post. For the past 13 years he has changed the state of Madhya Pradesh from BIMARU state to recovering state. His schemes like Ladli Laxmi yojna, Kanyadhan yojna, Medhavi Vidyarthi yojna, Medhavi chaatra yojna are popular and benefitted young voters who are going to cast their votes in coming election. And Indore and Bhopal are cleanest city in India under Swatcha Bharat scheme. MP has improved in Road, electricity and other infra structure development. So chances are there that Mr. Shivraj Singh may be the next CM for the fourth time. But anti incumbency will help congress party .
