Chouhan's non-inclusion in BJP Parliamentary Board disheartens partymen
Bhopal: Although BJP president Rajnath Singh has accommodated 22 members from Madhya Pradesh in the recently constituted national executive, state partymen are disappointed as Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan does not find a place in the all powerful Parliamentary Board.
"The partymen were expecting Chouhan to figure in the Parliamentary Board, but his non-inclusion has disappointed them," party sources told a news agency. The leaders were hoping that in order to balance the growing clamour for Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi as the prime ministerial candidate, the BJP's national leadership would also include Chouhan in the Parliamentary Board, but their hopes were dashed when the list was officially declared.
However, Urban Administration and Development Minister Babulal Gaur justified the decision on the ground that "Modi had scored a hat-trick in Gujarat Assembly elections, while under Chouhan's leadership, the BJP won the polls only once." When BJP won elections in 2003, it was Uma Bharti who had led the campaign to oust Congress from power in the state and became the Chief Minister.
Later, she was replaced by Babulal Gaur who later had to quit to give way for Chouhan in the wake of Bharti's protest.
