Amidst an atmosphere charged with enthusiasm and determination, BJP stalwarts welcomed Prime Minister Narendra Modi to the party’s headquarters in New Delhi. This reception followed the resounding success of the recently concluded G20 Summit.
The Central Election Committee (CEC) meeting for the forthcoming 2023 Madhya Pradesh Assembly elections commenced promptly upon PM Modi’s arrival. Notable figures like Defence Minister Rajnath Singh, Union Home Minister Amit Shah, and BJP’s national president JP Nadda were among the esteemed attendees.

Previously, the committee had convened on August 16, where they announced candidates for 39 constituencies in BJP-ruled Madhya Pradesh and 21 in Congress-ruled Chhattisgarh. Significantly, these constituencies lack incumbent BJP MLAs.
Key members of the committee, including BJP President J P Nadda, Home Minister Amit Shah, and Defence Minister Rajnath Singh, joined forces with PM Modi in charting the party’s electoral strategies.
With an eye on the 2024 Lok Sabha elections, the BJP is strategically preparing for pivotal electoral battles in states such as Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Telangana, and Mizoram. These state elections have assumed greater significance due to the emergence of the ‘INDIA’ Opposition bloc. The Bhartiya Janta Party may recalibrate their electoral tactics following their defeat in the Ghosi bypolls in Uttar Pradesh, where a Samajwadi Party candidate, supported by the ‘INDIA’ alliance, emerged victorious.
India’s recent hosting of a triumphant G20 summit in New Delhi earned accolades from the business leaders. They attributed India’s growing influence on the world stage to the successful consensus reached on various global economic and geopolitical issues during the summit.
Piyush Goyal, the Minister of Commerce and Industry, highlighted the G20 Presidency’s achievement in harmonizing developmental aspirations for a sustainable future. India’s G20 Presidency achieved a diplomatic feat by adopting a consensus declaration despite substantial differences on the Russia-Ukraine conflict. PM Modi called for bridging the “global trust deficit” and announced the admission of the African Union as a permanent member of the G20.
The induction of the African Union as a permanent member stands as a highlight of India’s Presidency. The G20 event also saw the inception of initiatives like the Global Biofuel Alliance and the India-Middle East-Europe Corridor.
India has gracefully passed on the G20 Presidency to Brazilian President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, marking a successful tenure.
