The BJP leader went on to say he is “not happy from within” and stressed he did not have even “1% desire” to contest this time

BJP’s national general secretary and veteran leader, Kailash Vijayvargiya said he was ‘surprised’ at his name in the list of candidates picked to contest the upcoming Assembly elections in Madhya Pradesh. The BJP leader went on to say he is “not happy from within” and stressed he did not have even “1% desire” to contest this time.

Addressing his supporters at an event in Bhopal, 67-year-old Vijayvargiya said, “I am not happy from within. I am telling the truth. I had no desire to contest, not even 1 per cent. There is a mindset to contest. I am a senior leader now, will I now ask for votes with folded hands? I had thought I will give speeches and leave. This was my plan.”

BJP has fielded Kailash Vijayvargiya from the Indore-1 Assembly seat. The BJP leader has earlier served as Indore Mayor and a cabinet minister in Madhya Pradesh government. His son Akash is an MLA from Indore-3 seat.

Congress’s Sanjay Shukla currently represents Indore-1 Assembly seat in the state Assembly.

“I had planned eight public meetings, five by helicopter and three by car. But what you think never happens. What happens in God’s will. He wants me to contest elections, and go back to the people again. I still can’t believe that I am a candidate, that I have been given a ticket,” Vijayvargiya told his supporters.

In an interaction with the media, the BJP leader said, “I am fortunate that the party has selected me again for an electoral contest. I will try to fulfil the party’s expectations.”

“There is a huge scope for development in the Indore-1 Assembly constituency. Many people do not get basic amenities,” he added.

Kailash Vijayvargiya found a place in the second list of 39 names released by the BJP for the upcoming Madhya Pradesh Assembly election.
