Is the BJP planning to implement its success formula once again ahead of elections for various state assemblies? Is it planning to change the chief minister of Madhya Pradesh before the elections? Is it contemplating replacing senior party leader and three-term Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan?

If sources are to be believed the BJP national executive would take a final decision on this. In case he Is removed, he could in all probability be replaced by Union Minister Jyotiaditya Scindia.  This could help in fighting anti-incumbency in a state, where the BJP has continuously ruled for the last 15 years, except for a year.

The BJP has changed the CMs in Uttaranchal, Tripura and Gujarat ahead of the respective assembly elections and succeeded in winning the elections in both Uttaranchal and Gujarat. If courses are to be believed, in Tripura to the BJP is poised for a return to power.  But, the party has not changed its CM in states like Manipur, Haryana and other states.  Yet, it has won there too.

If sources are to be believed, there is severe anti-incumbency in Madhya Pradesh too. So, the BJP wants to change the chief minister. A final decision would be taken at the national executive committee meeting beginning today. It remains to be seen whether Shivraj will continue or will make way for Scindia.
