Lok Sabha Elections-2024: BJP’s Alok Sharma Files Nomination in Bhopal, Campaigns Alongside Shivraj, Holds Massive Road Show

Bhopal: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) nominee Alok Sharma officially submitted his candidacy for the Bhopal parliamentary constituency in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections-2024 on Thursday.

Accompanied by former Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan, state cabinet minister Vishwas Sarang, and state minister Krishna Gaur, Sharma filed his nomination papers, marking the beginning of his electoral journey.

Prior to filing his nomination, Sharma, joined by Chief Minister Mohan Yadav and former CM Chouhan, visited the Curfew Mata Temple in the city to seek blessings and addressed a gathering of supporters.

Expressing his commitment, Sharma stated, "As a grassroots worker, BJP has entrusted me with the responsibility of representing Bhopal in Parliament. With the assurance of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, we embark on a journey to propel Bhopal's development."

Meanwhile, CM Yadav took a swipe at the Congress, highlighting the influx of Congress members into the BJP ranks, metaphorically describing it as electric shocks for the opposition party. He emphasized the visible development in Bhopal over the past two decades and praised BJP's ethos of prioritizing its workers.

Amidst the political fervor, former Bhopal Congress mayor Sunil Sood and his supporters also announced their allegiance to the BJP, further bolstering the party's presence.

Confident about BJP's prospects, CM Yadav expressed certainty in securing victory across all six parliamentary seats slated for the initial phase of polling. These seats include Sidhi, Shahdol, Jabalpur, Mandla, Balaghat, and Chhindwara, with voting scheduled for April 19.

Madhya Pradesh will witness its Lok Sabha elections unfold across four phases, with polling dates set for April 19, April 26, May 7, and May 13. The culmination will come on June 4 with the counting of votes.

Bhopal, along with eight other parliamentary constituencies, will go to the polls in the third phase on May 7. Madhya Pradesh's parliamentary representation comprises 29 seats, with 10 reserved for SC and ST candidates, underscoring its significance in the national political landscape.
