In a move to overcome the anti-incumbency and local factors including increasing unrest against the SC/ST Act in Madhya Pradesh elections, state BJP unit have decided to axe some senior state ministers from Vidhan Sabha. Public Health Engineering (PHE) minister Kusum Mehdele (Panna) and housing minister Maya Singh (Gwalior East) are on the verge of the exit from state assembly, sources claimed.

Apart from the poor performance in their respective constituencies, both Mehdele and Singh have also failed on the expectations of the party.

During a survey conducted by BJP, several voters alleged that both the MLAs are least accessible in their constituency. And the women ministers have also created some controversies in the past, where Kusum Mehdele created an embarrassment for the government over eating milk or egg in Anganwadis and stated that “those who want to eat eggs and fish should do so on their own”.

On the other hand, previously Maya Singh has also faced resentments from the public when she urged a ban on ‘Naqab’. “Mostly women wear Naqabs to protect themselves from the harmful rays of the sun, but apart from this they should not wear Naqabs,” Maya Singh said. “Before banning the Naqab. I will call a meeting with school-going and college-going students to know their opinion and why they are wearing these masks all the time”, she added.
According to sources, cabinet ministers including health minister Rustam Singh (Morena) and finance minister Jayant Malaiya (Damoh), could be excluded from candidates list. Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan and State President Rakesh Singh will finalize the candidates’ list in New Delhi.
