BJP and Cong Stick to ‘Survey Formula’: New Concern for MP Poll Ticket-Seekers

<p>Both the main political parties, the Congress and the BJP, have chosen to employ the “survey formula” in the Madhya Pradesh assembly elections due to the growing number of candidates, which has alarmed those seeking a seat.</p>
<p>The party leaderships are aware that neither the BJP nor the Congress would have it easy in the state assembly elections later this year, therefore they have chosen to back only those candidates who have a chance of winning. This is the reason why both of these political parties are conducting their own assembly-specific surveys.<img decoding=”async” class=”alignnone wp-image-102967″ src=”https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/07/theindiaprint.com-a-newlywed-woman-vanishes-off-a-train-in-bihar-while-on-her-honeymoon-bjp-cong-afp-dh-1155253-1666256426-1212011-1682164991-1212345-1682269944-1212892-1682448329.jpg” alt=”” width=”1466″ height=”825″ srcset=”https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/07/theindiaprint.com-a-newlywed-woman-vanishes-off-a-train-in-bihar-while-on-her-honeymoon-bjp-cong-afp-dh-1155253-1666256426-1212011-1682164991-1212345-1682269944-1212892-1682448329.jpg 700w, https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/07/theindiaprint.com-a-newlywed-woman-vanishes-off-a-train-in-bihar-while-on-her-honeymoon-bjp-cong-afp-dh-1155253-1666256426-1212011-1682164991-1212345-1682269944-1212892-1682448329-390×220.jpg 390w, https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/07/theindiaprint.com-a-newlywed-woman-vanishes-off-a-train-in-bihar-while-on-her-honeymoon-bjp-cong-afp-dh-1155253-1666256426-1212011-1682164991-1212345-1682269944-1212892-1682448329-150×84.jpg 150w” sizes=”(max-width: 1466px) 100vw, 1466px” /></p>
<p>Out of 230 assembly seats up for election in Madhya Pradesh in 2018, the Congress won 114 and the BJP 109. Despite not having a complete majority, the Congress party was able to create the government with the help of the Samajwadi Party, the Bahujan Samaj Party, and independent MLAs.</p>
<p>The Kamal Nath-led Congress administration barely held office for roughly 15 months until it was toppled by the BJP’s enlistment of 22 MLAs under the direction of Jyotiraditya Scindia.</p>
<p>Both political parties are moving carefully in anticipation of the next assembly elections in light of the outcomes of the 2018 assembly elections and the following urban body elections.</p>
<p>At the same time, ticket-seekers are traveling to Delhi and Bhopal to meet with lawmakers and party leaders. These claimants are often informed by BJP officials that the party would only nominate people whose names appear in the survey.</p>
<p>Senior members of the Congress and BJP have acknowledged that the parties are holding the poll and that only those whose names are on the poll would be nominated. Family ties and political favoritism alone cannot get a seat. The candidates are being forced to sit down and make a commitment to support the party’s nominee in many locations by the leaders.</p>
<p>A candidate who has been campaigning for the last three years claims that he requested a party nomination for the last two elections but was denied; in contrast, a candidate who was supported by a powerful politician was given the nomination and lost both times. Now that the party is announcing that they would distribute tickets based on surveys, concerns over whether he will get a ticket or if it will go to someone who is the leader’s protégé are growing.</p>
