Gwalior is the home turf of Civil Aviation Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia.
“Shah will release the report card of the Shivraj Singh Chouhan government at a function here. Thereafter, he will leave for Gwalior where he will chair and address a working committee meeting, state BJP media cell head Ashish Agrawal told PTI over phone on Saturday.
We want to increase our movement in Gwalior, the erstwhile kingdom of the Scindias, another BJP leader said.
According to political observers, the BJP is striving to put up a good show in Gwalior and Chambal region, especially after losing the Gwalior mayoral elections last year to the Congress, after 57 years.
After Scindia switched over to the BJP along with his loyalists, the Congress could win just 7 of the 19 seats in the bypolls in Gwalior and Chambal region in November 2020.
However, after the setback in last year’s Gwalior mayoral elections, the BJP doesn’t want to take any chances, said a political observer.
