Political dynamics between Kamal Nath, Shivraj-Sindhiya alliance
In the previous assembly elections in 2018, the Congress won 114 out of 230 seats, forming a coalition government. On the flip side, the BJP won 109 seats. However, Jyotiraditya Scindia’s move, along with the support of his followers, led to the collapse of the Congress government and the reinstatement of Shivraj Singh Chouhan as Chief Minister in March 2020.
