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

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is currently concerned about its performance in two major states, Uttar Pradesh and Rajasthan. However, it has been reported that the party will not be replacing the chief ministers of these states for the time being. An analysis and review of the reasons for the losses will be conducted soon.

According to reliable political sources, following the disappointing performance of the BJP in Rajasthan during the Lok Sabha elections, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and Rajasthan Chief Minister Bhajan Lal Sharma, who had arrived in New Delhi, were informed by the BJP's top leadership that they would not be replaced at this time. They have been advised to continue their administrative duties without worry. Nonetheless, a detailed review of the causes of the defeats in both states will be conducted shortly, and necessary changes in governance and party organization will be implemented.

Notably, the BJP's performance in Uttar Pradesh this time was not satisfactory. Similarly, in Rajasthan, the BJP failed to achieve a hat-trick by winning all 25 Lok Sabha seats, as in the last two general elections. This has led to widespread speculation about the future of Chief Minister Sharma. Despite this, Sharma has remained actively engaged in political and administrative activities.

Chief Minister Bhajan Lal Sharma had been in New Delhi since Thursday evening and participated in the meeting on Friday at the old Parliament House, where Prime Minister Narendra Modi was elected leader of the NDA parliamentary party. Sharma also met with central leaders and MPs during this time. The meeting was attended by former Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje, outgoing central ministers, and all MPs from Rajasthan.

It is reported that Chief Minister Sharma had brought a detailed report on the BJP's severe defeat in the Lok Sabha elections, just five months after winning the state assembly elections. However, due to the top leaders being occupied with other political activities, the report has not yet been discussed.

On Friday evening, Sharma hosted a dinner at Bikaner House to honor all 14 newly elected BJP Lok Sabha MPs and Rajya Sabha MPs from Rajasthan. He congratulated the MPs on their victories and discussed the need to raise issues related to Rajasthan's interests in Parliament and to seek solutions to the state's problems from the central government.

Sharma is reportedly serious about implementing the ambitious Eastern Rajasthan Canal Project and the plan to bring Yamuna water to the Shekhawati region. During his stay in Delhi, he reviewed the progress of these projects with central and state officials. Recently, to address the drinking water issues in the state during the summer, Chief Minister Sharma personally inspected the situation by walking through the streets of Jaipur in the intense heat.

Chief Minister Bhajan Lal Sharma became an MLA and Chief Minister for the first time and was previously active in the BJP's state organization. Due to the Lok Sabha election code of conduct, he has had limited time to work effectively. This time, the BJP faced significant setbacks in the Hindi belt due to discontent among farmers, Jats, and minorities. Rajasthan will see by-elections within the next six months due to five MLAs becoming MPs, as well as local body elections. These present additional challenges for Chief Minister Sharma, which he must navigate successfully to secure his political future.

Political analysts note that Rajasthan often has governments with differing ideologies at the center and state levels. Even when governments with similar ideologies are in power, some reason or another prevents Rajasthan from receiving its due demands and rights.
