BJP Will Not Change Chief Ministers of Uttar Pradesh and Rajasthan for Now

New Delhi: The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is currently concerned about its performance in the two major states of Uttar Pradesh and Rajasthan, but sources indicate that the party will not be changing the Chief Ministers of these states for the time being. However, a thorough analysis and review of the reasons behind the defeat will be conducted.

Reliable political sources suggest that after the BJP's poor performance in the Lok Sabha elections in Rajasthan, Chief Ministers Yogi Adityanath of Uttar Pradesh and Bhajan Lal Sharma of Rajasthan were signaled by the BJP top leadership that they would not be replaced at this time. They have been assured to continue their governance duties without worry. However, a detailed review of the causes of the BJP's defeat in both states will be conducted soon, and changes in administration and organization may follow as necessary.

Notably, the BJP's performance in Uttar Pradesh this time was not satisfactory. Similarly, in Rajasthan, failing to achieve a hat-trick of winning all 25 Lok Sabha seats as in the previous two general elections has led to speculation regarding Chief Minister Sharma. Despite this, Sharma has remained active in his political and administrative duties.

Chief Minister Bhajan Lal Sharma was in New Delhi from Thursday evening and, before departing for Jaipur on Saturday, attended a meeting on Friday at the old Parliament building, where Prime Minister Narendra Modi was elected as the leader of the NDA parliamentary party. Sharma also met with central leaders and MPs. The meeting, where PM Modi was elected as the parliamentary leader, was attended by former Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje, outgoing ministers from Rajasthan in the central government, and all MPs from the state.

It is reported that Sharma came with a detailed report on the reasons behind the BJP's significant defeat in the Lok Sabha elections in Rajasthan, just five months after winning the state assembly elections. However, due to the busy schedules of the top leaders, there has been no discussion on it yet.

On Friday evening, Sharma hosted a dinner at Bikaner House in honor of the newly elected 14 BJP Lok Sabha MPs and Rajya Sabha MPs from Rajasthan. He congratulated and extended best wishes to the MPs, urging them to raise issues related to Rajasthan’s interests in Parliament and seek solutions from the central government. Sharma also discussed political matters with the state BJP president CP Joshi and other leaders at Jodhpur House in New Delhi.

It is reported that Sharma is serious about implementing the ambitious Eastern Rajasthan Canal Project and the plan to bring Yamuna water to the Shekhawati region of the state. During his stay in Delhi, he reviewed the progress of these projects with central and state officials. After the Lok Sabha elections, Sharma personally assessed the drinking water problem in Jaipur during the summer by hitting the streets in the scorching heat.

Bhajan Lal Sharma is a first-time MLA and Chief Minister, having been active in the BJP state organization before taking office. Due to the imposition of the Model Code of Conduct for the Lok Sabha elections soon after he became Chief Minister, he has not had much time to work. This time, the BJP faced significant losses in the Hindi heartland due to dissatisfaction among farmers, Jats, and minorities. With five MLAs becoming MPs, by-elections are due in Rajasthan within the next six months, alongside local body elections. This presents additional challenges for Sharma, which he must navigate successfully to secure his political future.

Political experts note that Rajasthan often experiences political upheaval, resulting in different ideological governments at the center and state. Even when there are governments of the same ideology, Rajasthan often misses out on its rightful demands and entitlements due to various reasons.
