Intimidating football slogans
The BJP had made Yashodhara Raje Scindia, Jyotiraditya’s aunt, the party’s in-charge of campaigning in Kolaras.
The Madhya Pradesh minister was censured by the Election Commission in response to a complaint accusing her of intimidating voters.
In a video, she was seen telling voters that they would be deprived of benefits of government schemes if they choose to vote for the Congress.
After the results were announced, some supporters of Jyotiraditya Scindia reached the Congress headquarters with his cutouts, shouting slogans such as “Ab Ki baar Scindia ki sarkar”.
The BSP candidate had received 12,081 votes in 2013.
Scindia, the Congress party’s chief whip in Lok Sabha, had campaigned extensively in both segments, projecting the by-election as a direct contest between Chouhan and him.
The ruling BJP had drafted nearly the entire Cabinet, including Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan, to campaign in the two Assembly segments, which are part of Congress leader Jyotiraditya Scindia’s Lok Sabha constituency, Guna.
The ruling party was forced to find solace in the fact it managed to reduce the Congress candidates’ margins of victory in both constituencies.
