BJP's Triumph and Future Steps

The BJP's sweeping success in three significant state elections has dealt a significant blow to the Indian National Congress, the country's main opposition party. The BJP managed to seize power from Congress in Chhattisgarh and Rajasthan and maintained its grip in Madhya Pradesh. This victory solidifies their position as they prepare for the national elections in the upcoming spring.

Former Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje, a potential candidate for the role, has refrained from commenting on the subject upon her arrival in Delhi. Raje, aiming for a third term, commands substantial support among BJP MLAs and the general public. However, the final decision for the Chief Minister position rests with the party's top leadership. Mahant Balaknath, a 40-year-old former MP and member of the Nath community, has also been considered for the CM post in recent discussions.

Political Upheaval and Public Response

While these political machinations are unfolding, the murder of Karni Sena national president Sukhdev Singh Gogamedi in Jaipur has led to public protests and a statewide bandh called by the Karni Sena. The political landscape in India appears to be shifting significantly, marked by a growing divide between the northern and southern states. Prime Minister Narendra Modi, once enjoying widespread support across the nation, now faces rejection in the more developed southern states while maintaining popularity in the developing northern regions.
