New Delhi: Bharatiya Janata Party's longest-serving CM, Shivraj Singh Chouhan is likely to be promoted after party's one sided win in his home state, Madhya Pradesh, in the just-concluded Lok Sabha Elections. Sources said that Shivraj Singh Chouhan could be appointed as the next national president of the Bharatiya Janata Party after JP Nadda. 

Sources exclusive to Republic said that the BJP top brass is mulling over elevating Shivraj Singh Chouhan within the party ranks. The former Madhya Pradesh CM has been called to Delhi immediately by the party leadership. Chouhan, along with Union Minister Dharmendra Pradhan are being considered for big responsibilities at the national level, said sources.

Few months back, Shivraj Singh Chouhan was replaced by the BJP and Mohan Yadav was appointed as the new Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh, an incident looked upon as ‘unceremonious farewell’ to Chouhan. Chouhan has served as the CM of Madhya Pradesh for over 16 years. 

After being replaced, Chouhan said that he would never go to Delhi, and few months down the line Chouhan is back as the MP from Vidisha parliamentary constituency, from where he started.

In the just concluded general elections, Chouhan has emerged as the shinning star of the NDA. Shivraj Singh Chouhan won the 2024 Lok Sabha elections by a whopping margin of 8,21,408 votes, defeating his nearest Congress rival. The former MP chief minister polled 11,16,460 votes while Congress’ Pratap Bhanu Sharma, a two-time parliamentarian, managed to get 2,95,052 votes.

This was Chouhan’s sixth victory from Vidisha, once represented by BJP stalwarts like former prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee (1991), Sushma Swaraj (2009 and 2014) and newspaper baron Ramnath Goenka (1971).
