Father, son and the big fight in Indore

The delicate power equations in the BJP 's Indore unit have been disrupted by a generational shift, making this fortress the site of one of the fiercest elections in the world. Assembly in Madhya Pradesh.

Akash Vijayvargiya is a party candidate in Indore 3, an urban seat in which he has a good chance of winning, but his protest has raised questions about the party's internal dynamics before Lok Sabha's election in 2019. The delicate report of forces between his father, the BJP national secretary general, Kailash Vijayvargiya, elected to the position of deputy of the Indore MP belt over the years, and the Lok Sabha president, Sumitra Mahajan, deputy head of government. Indore since 1989, have been somewhat troubled. as well as that of various other leaders of Indore.

Usha Thakur, who won the seat at Indore 3 during a tough battle with Congress in 2013, was transferred to Mhow, in the constituency of Mr. Vijayvargiya senior, while Ramesh Mendola, once considered close to he was re-elected to Indore 2.

United face

The party, however, has a united front, with Mahajan making an appearance at the first session of Akash Vijayvargiya's campaign office, as she did for Indore 5's candidate, Mahendra Hardia.

"I do not know why this impression that Sumitra Tai asked for a ticket for one of her sons was out," said Mr. Kailash Vijayvargiya L & # 39; Hindu, in response to information that she wanted a ticket for her son, Mandar. "My son had been recommended in the five urban constituencies of Indore and would fight alone against the polls because I will not campaign in his place."

He said that he did not want to challenge himself this year and that his son's question was therefore asked. His refusal raised the question of whether he was monitoring the siege of Indore Lok Sabha and if so, what about Ms. Mahajan? He has not commented on any plans for 2019, merely saying that he was responsible for the Malwa region for the BJP and, with more than 60 seats in the Assembly in this region alone, wanted to be free of any individual competition.

"As for Usha Thakur, it's my job to make sure she wins, because she left my old seat, leaving Indore 3," he said en route to a meeting with the Union Minister, Uma Bharati. "I met workers in 320 booths at Mhow, and we are all united." Thakur's chances are considered unsightly because she was mutilated at headquarters and faces rebellion in the district leaders who hoped ticket.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi will deliver a speech at an electoral assembly in the region (covering at least 17 constituencies of the Assembly) on 18 November. The leaders of the BJP hope that by then the unresolved equations will be somewhat settled.
