Looking at the results and trends of the 28-seat by-election in MP, it is unlikely that anything is unexpected in the result. The result could have been unexpected if the BJP had won 28 of the 28 seats. Or most of the Congress people would have won. Both situations did not happen here. There was no threat to BJP by the by-election. Because, the BJP needed only 8 seats to save the government. That victory was to be won. Overall the issue in this was what happens to the position of the MLAs who came to BJP with Scindia. And among the 22 people who came, some of them were from Digvijay, especially from Malwa-Nimar region. The results suggest that Scindia did not have as much influence in the Chambal region as the BJP would have expected from him. Or Scindia himself may also be claiming. In the Morena region, Union Minister Narendra Singh Tomar intervenes. The situation of the Bharatiya Janata Party was also not good there.
The second issue is that among the Congressmen who contested on the BJP ticket, the margin of victory of most of them is very low. Therefore, the BJP has done a great job, it is not so. For example, in Bhander, BJP's defense Syronia defeated Phool Singh Baraiya of Congress by only 161 votes. Some important ministers of Scindia are also losing or trailing. Now the issue is not this, the issue is how the government will work. The pressure of the Scindia group on Shivraj before the by-election will end but the Shivraj government will have to face new pressures. The kind of responsibility that Scindia supporters get in the reorganization of the cabinet will clear many things. On the other hand, how much Scindia has strengthened for her big role at the center through these elections is not clear yet. The results of the by-elections are good for the BJP, although it did not face the threat of saving the government. How much Scindia's central weight counts, it has to be seen from the perspective of these elections.
Much bigger changes can be expected in the MP Congress with the election results. The message of this election is clear – Congress cannot be left in Kamal Nath in MP. Nor can it be run on the trust of Digvijay Singh. So there is a big challenge before the Congress high command, what should be done to re-organize the Congress in Madhya Pradesh? Because in MP, the Congress is divided into many factions. The government fell due to not being able to handle Kamal Nath, Scindia and their supporters. Now this was the second time when Kamal Nath would have done something like this, but that was not possible. Another feature of these elections was that the BJP had put its entire resources and workers, but nothing like this appeared from the Congress. The main reason for this is that the Congress high command either resented Kamal Nath or Digvijay Singh. That is why no big leader from Congress came from outside. If this election was so prestigious for him, Rahul Gandhi or Priyanka Gandhi would also have come for campaigning. Everything left over Kamal Nath. You may have said, brother, show it by doing.
It can be said that the Congress high command had overthrown. The only Sachin pilot came to campaign. He too met Scindia, but spoke against him. Shivraj Singh had a crisis to save the government from this election and his rehabilitation crisis in front of Kamal Nath. It seems that the Congress will have to undergo fresh changes in Madhya Pradesh. Even if this happens, the conflict and crisis will increase. Therefore, two things will go on till 2023. First, the situation between the pro-Scindia and the BJP in the BJP government may remain tense. Secondly, how is there coordination about the division and rights of the departments. It will also be interesting to see how the people of Scindia who lose will be rehabilitated. How will the mutual equations be solved in the Congress, as there is no coordination between the State Committee and the Central Committee. Will leave them on their condition or any solution will be found. This election also exposed the weaknesses of both BJP and Congress. BJP's weakness is because the strength with which and with which they should win, did not happen. Scindia's area of influence was also defeated.
