BJP MPs who quit Parliament after election win meet PM Modi, brainstorms over chief ministers

| @indiablooms | 06 Dec 2023, 11:26 pm

New Delhi/IBNS: The crucial issue of picking Chief Ministers for three heartland states ahead of 2024's general elections continued Wednesday with a meeting of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)'s top leaders at Prime Minister Narendra Modi's official residence.

Earlier in the day, 12 MPs resigned from Parliament after winning the assembly polls and met the Prime Minister.

Among the 12 MPs who resigned were Narendra Tomar, Prahlad Patel, Riti Pathak, Rakesh Singh, and Uday Pratap Singh from Madhya Pradesh, and Rajyavardhan Rathore, Kirodi Lal Meena, and Diya Kumari from Rajasthan.

Earlier this week, the BJP wrested Rajasthan and Chhattisgarh from the Congress and retained its hold on Madhya Pradesh amid a buzz of anti-incumbency.

In all three states, the party had gone into polls without a Chief Ministerial candidate, banking on 'Modi magic', that delivered in spades.

Now with the victory, the BJP is facing the challenge of who would helm the states. The brain-storming has been on since Sunday, feeding speculation about a hunt for new faces.

Wednesday's session is the second consecutive meeting.

The three states together account for 65 Lok Sabha seats and a wrong decision can prove expensive for the BJP in 2024.
