The Rajgarh Lok Sabha constituency is one of the 29 parliamentary constituencies in Madhya Pradesh
Rajgarh is an important Lok Sabha constituency since it has seen many prominent leaders of the Congress in power.
Rajgarh, which was won by the BJP’s Rodmal Nagar who defeated Amlabe Narayan Singh of the Congress in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections, is likely to be a difficult seat for the BJP to win due to alleged resentment among the party cadres.
Allegations of poor performance against sitting BJP MP Rodmal Nagar’s in the past five years is also a reason for resentment among the party cadre as well as the local populace.
For the elections which were held on May 12 , the BJP has once again fielded Rodmal Nagar while the Congress is pinning its hopes on Mona Sustani.
