MP Lok Sabha Election 2024 Results: What Will Be Political Future of Congress Stalwarts Kamal Nath, Digvijaya Singh, Kantilal Bhuria

MP Lok Sabha Election 2024 Results: Congress has increased its number of seats by a century in the whole country but in Madhya Pradesh, which is called the heart of the country, not only did it fail to open its account but also questions have been raised on the political future of many big leaders of the party here. In fact, Congress has suffered a big defeat in Madhya Pradesh for the second time in six months. This despite the fact that Congress had fielded its big names in the Lok Sabha elections-2024. 

Congress could not even save Chhindwara seat, one of the strongest strongholds of the party in the whole country. In such a situation, the question arises that what will happen to leaders like former CM Kamal Nath, former CM Digvijaya Singh and former Union Minister Kantilal Bhuria. 

Political future of Nath in limbo

Veteran Congress leader Kamal Nath is considered close to the Gandhi family. The biggest blow to Congress in Madhya Pradesh has been in Kamal Nath's area Chhindwara. This seat was in the possession of Congress for the last 40 years despite all the storms. It was considered the impregnable fort of Congress and Kamal Nath. 

But in the 2024 elections, his son Nakul Nath has been defeated by Vivek Bunty Sahu of BJP by 1 lakh 13 thousand 655 votes. The situation is such that during the counting itself, Nakul Nath left the center and went to his home. 

In fact, six months ago, Congress contested the MP assembly elections under the leadership of Kamal Nath, in which the party suffered a crushing defeat. Earlier, when Kamal Nath became CM, he handed over his LS seat to his son Nakul Nath, but Nakul could not save his seat in the 2024 elections. Earlier, there were speculations about Kamal Nath leaving the party just before the Lok Sabha elections. Obviously, all the circumstances raise questions on the political future of 77-year-old Kamal Nath. 

Digvijaya loses last election

Besides, Digvijaya has already said - this is my last election. Digvijay Singh has been the former CM of the state and is counted among the big Congress leaders not only in the state but also in the country. Despite this, he has tasted defeat in two important elections one after the other. This time he himself did not want to contest the elections, but the party said that all the big leaders of the state have to contest. After this he contested from Rajgarh as a Congress candidate. During the election campaign, he was also constantly saying that this is his last election. He is 77 years old. In such a situation, after the latest defeat, his path in the party is no longer easy.

Diminished Aura of Bhuria in Ratlam

In the 2024 general elections, the Congress party faced a setback with the defeat of one of its prominent leaders, former Union Minister Kantilal Bhuria. Known as a key figure in the Madhya Pradesh Congress, Bhuria suffered a significant loss in the Ratlam constituency. This defeat follows a similar outcome in 2019 from the same seat. This raises uncertainties about the continued active involvement of the 74-year-old Kantilal Bhuria within the party.
