Only five months have remained in Madhya Pradesh assembly elections. Meanwhile, Congress General Secretary Deepak Babaria has declared the Dalit leader Surendra Chaudhary to be the Deputy Chief Minister. However, the Congress party has not yet announced the Chief Ministerial candidate. Regardless, its Surendra Choudhary has been declared as a Deputy CM. Its direct purpose is being seen as wooing the dalits. All India Congress Committee general secretary and state in charge Deepak Babaria announced this in Bhopal on Thursday that “if Congress comes to power in the state, then Chaudhary will be Deputy CM“.
This announcement has been made on behalf of the Congress when the possibility of an alliance with the BSP in the state has started to weaken. A few days ago, a BSP leader had said that BSP will contest on all 230 seats. In such a situation, Congress has announced that Chaudhary should be sworn as deputy CM. The Congress general secretary has said that earlier in the party, the Dalits and tribals are also the respect of the party. It has been said by the Congress that the party has created anti-leader groups by giving examples of late Jamuna Devi. Babariya also said that Congress Party has given the country the first Dalit President and the first Dalit Chief Minister.
After this announcement, the opposition party BJP has said that the Congress has insulted the Dalit society. BJP spokesman Hitesh Vajpayee asked why the Congress declare the Dalit Deputy chief minister, they also have an option of Chief Minister?

In the state, the three senior leaders of the Congress are inclined to hold the CM post. These include state president Kamal Nath, election campaign committee president Jyotiraditya Scindia and former chief minister Digvijay Singh.
After the victory of the Opposition coalition in the UP elections and the Congress-JDS alliance in Karnataka, its prospects had increased after the fact that in Madhya Pradesh, if Congress had a coalition with the BSP, then for three times, The BJP that is in power can be defeated, but so far nothing has happened on any seat sharing between these two parties nor did it Uru could be.
