The ruling Bharatiya Janata Party in Madhya Pradesh has decided to focus on beneficiaries of various government schemes, besides temple redevelopment and other infrastructure projects, to counter anti-incumbency in the assembly polls next year, party leaders said. Madhya Pradesh chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan has already launched the CM Jan Sewa (public service) campaign in this regard. ?Nearly 1.6 million new beneficiaries fall in this category alone,? said a senior official, requesting anonymity.
Janata Dal (United)'s Upendra Kushwaha, a former union minister, said the people who attacked his convoy had their faces covered. “I will tell you about the motive and the people involved in the incident later,” he said in a tweet.
