    The BJP government under Shivraj Singh Chouhan has been formed with the help of Jyotiraditya Scindia, who switched from the Congress to the BJP in March. Scindia left the Congress and joined the BJP along with 22 MLAs, consequently leading to the fall of the 15-month-old Kamal Nath government in MP.

    Bulk 24 assembly by-polls are slated to be held in the coming months in MP, including 22 by-elections necessitated by the resignation of the Scindia loyalist MLAs.

    Tulsi Silawat, a close aide of Scindia is probable to contest on BJP ticket from Sanwer in Indore.
