Voting for Congress means throwing the vote in dustbin: Kailash Vijayvargiya

BJP general secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya has said voting for Congress is like throwing the vote in the dustbin, drawing a sharp reaction from the opposition party which termed his remarks as an "insult" to the electorate.

Vijayvargiya is the BJP candidate from Indore 1 seat for next month's Madhya Pradesh assembly polls.

“Today, the country, Madhya Pradesh and Indore need Bharatiya Janata Party. There are BJP governments in the country, state and city. What is the meaning (of) voting for Congress? Voting for Congress means throwing it (the vote) in the dustbin kept at home?" he said while speaking at a program here on Sunday night.

Will ‘scheming’ Gehlot deprive BJP of its chance in Rajasthan? A SWOT analysis of Congress

Strengths: Three-time Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot’s mass connect, strengthened further by a systematic outreach programme, gives the party another shot at power.

Despite being sidelined in the state, former deputy minister Sachin Pilot’s charisma still counts. He remains a crowd-puller, particularly among the youth.

Weaknesses: Infighting between Ashok Gehlot and Sachin Pilot has been out in the open throughout the Congress term. The current truce may not be enough to offset the damage.

Opportunities: Restoration of the Old Pension Scheme, divisions within BJP particularly if Vasundhara Raje’s supporters do not throw their weight into the BJP campaign; Congress also gains in some districts if it manages to convince voters that the BJP at the Centre is not prioritising the Eastern Rajasthan Canal Project.

Threats: Anti-incumbency, communal violence, the presence of Asaduddin Owaisi’s AIMIM on the Rajasthan poll scene could split the Muslim vote in some constituencies. Similarly, newly formed Bhartiya Adivasi too can make it tougher for the party in the tribal belt. (PTI)

MP polls: Rival parties locked in fierce freebie-filled fight to win ‘heart’ of India

A fierce competition among parties to offer freebies and guarantees, a scramble for tribal, OBC, women votes and a touch of Hindutva – all have combined to make the Madhya Pradesh assembly polls a high-stakes battle with main rivals BJP and the Congress pulling out all the stops to gain power.

After a close contest in 2018, the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the opposition Congress are marshalling all resources at their disposal to notch a clear majority in the 230-member House to avoid post-result complications.

Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan is on a freebies announcing spree, mostly targeting women, and playing temples-centric Hindutva card, while state Congress president Kamal Nath is countering his rival’s doles with his own pre-poll guarantees and wooing OBC voters.

With a long history of bipolar politics, dominated by the Congress and the BJP, Madhya Pradesh -- located in the geographic heart of India -- will also see the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) trying to make its presence felt in the state this time around.

Jobs, TSPSC paper leak, BRS govt performance likely to take centrestage in Telangana assembly polls

The leak of question papers of the Telangana State Public Service Commission (TSPSC), allegations against BRS MLC Kavitha in the Delhi excise policy case and the complaints over BRS government's 'Dharani' land records portal may become key campaign issues in the November 30 Telangana Assembly polls, besides the alleged failures of the state government.

The BRS, on its part, would stick to highlighting its 'Telangana model' of development and welfare in a big way to convince the electors to vote for it.

Lack of jobs is a key issue in Telangana as the youth had fought for statehood with the hope of securing jobs in the new state.

Amit Shah to address public meeting in Telangana on 10 Oct

Union Home Minister Amit Shah will address a public meeting at Adilabad and a convention of intellectuals in Hyderabad on October 10. Shah will address the rally at 1 pm and attend the convention of intellectuals in the evening, state BJP general secretary G Premender Reddy said in a release on Sunday night. The BJP in Telangana is hopeful that its campaign for the November 30 assembly polls will get momentum with Shah's visit.

The establishment of a Central Tribal University is an assurance mentioned in the Andhra Pradesh Reorganisation Act. Several senior BJP leaders are expected to take part in the party's campaign for the assembly polls.

The opposition Congress in Kerala on Monday said that if the Narendra Modi government comes to power for a third time, it will lead the country to destruction and therefore, the grand old party decided to unify all secular groups to defeat the BJP.

A nationwide caste census and poll strategies is set to dominate the Congress Working Committee (CWC) meeting, with assembly elections in Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Telangana and Mizoram set to be announced soon.

Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge, former party chiefs Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi, chief ministers of all the Congress-ruled states and the party top brass are present at the meeting. 

There are concerns within the Congress with respect to the articulation of its demand for the caste census, with Prime Minister Narendra Modi recently accusing the opposition party of attempting to divide Hindus through its push for the Other Backward Classes (OBC).

Congress spokesperson Abhishek Singhvi, who is also a regular CWC member, raised concerns recently over Rahul Gandhi's "jitni abaadi, utna haq" (rights proportionate to population) slogan, arguing that it amounts to an endorsement of majoritarianism. Although Singhvi quickly deleted his controversial post on X after the Congress distanced itself from his remarks, concerns remain among a section of the party as to the articulation of the politically sensitive call for the caste census.

Ahead of the Rajasthan Legislative Assembly polls that are scheduled to be conducted by the end of 2023, Union Minister Dharmendra Pradhan targeted the Ashok Gehlot government and said that crimes against women are increasing in the state under the leadership of Congress.

Recently an incident came up, an incident also surfaced from Ujjain at the same time. Such incidents are less related to the government and more related to morbid psychology... If the government knows that something is going to happen and they don't take action, then it is the government's responsibility.
