Renewed election strategy for the next Legislative Assembly polls, has created fresh political equations within the Chhattisgarh Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leaving the ticket aspirants on tenterhooks. Select meeting of visiting Union Home Minister Amit Shah with handful of people from Chhattisgarh BJP recently, has created a buzz over the political strategy but the leaders who were hopeful of getting better opportunity to lead the campaign in the upcoming elections are speechless as they have not even been considered to remain close to Shah. Senior leaders like Brijmohan Agrawal, Prem Prakash Pandey and Ajay Chandrakar considered to bete-noire to former Chief Minister Dr Raman Singh were ignored in key discussions so far while they were hopeful of getting key responsibilities.

It is notable that Shah, considered to be chief strategist, had held close door talks with State BJP President Arun Sao, Leader of Opposition in Chhattisgarh Legislative Assembly Narayan Chandel, Dr Raman Singh as well as former Rajya Sabha member Ramvichar Netam. However, the importance given to senior OBC leader Dharmlal Kaushik, has further created confusion among party rank and file as he was considered to be a non-performer and was replaced by Chandel as Leader of Opposition last year.

Further the appointment of central leaders OP Mathur and Union Minister Mansukh Mandaviya as election in-charge and co in-charge has made it clear that the BJP would be contesting the upcoming polls jointly instead of project few leaders for the leadership role. It has been considered to an exercise by the central leadership to ease the growing aspirations among senior leaders as well as to put a pause to the growing groupism within the saffron brigade.

Existing scenario has changed the political equations with both senior leaders given key role as well as the youngsters hopeful of their better future prospect in the run up for the next polls.
