Bhopa: In a dramatic turn of events following the recent Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) victory in Madhya Pradesh, former Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan made a remarkable statement affirming his commitment to party values. Chouhan, who gracefully stepped aside as Mohan Yadav assumed the chief ministerial role, declared that he would "rather die than ask something for himself from the party."

A humble vow amid political shifts

Chouhan's unequivocal statement came during a press interaction at his residence in Bhopal. The four-time chief minister expressed his humility, asserting that he is ready to accept any role designated by the party without seeking personal gains. This unwavering commitment to party principles showcases a rare dedication to political integrity.

Embracing the new leadership

Despite the political transition that saw Mohan Yadav elected as the new Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh, Chouhan remains resolute in his support for the incoming government. He expressed confidence in Yadav's leadership, stating, "I am confident that the BJP government under Mohan Yadav’s leadership will complete the ongoing works at a rapid pace."

Spotlight on 'Ladli Behna' Yojana

Chouhan took the opportunity to highlight the significance of the 'Ladli Behna' Yojana in BJP's landslide victory. This welfare scheme, initiated during his tenure, provides financial assistance of Rs 1,250 every month to women from economically weaker sections. Chouhan's emphasis on women's empowerment and farmers' welfare reflects the party's commitment to holistic development.

Meanwhile, a video showcasing a couple of women crying their hearts out after Shivraj Singh Chouhan gave in his formal resignation. The video has since gone viral on social media.

Stepping into the future

As Madhya Pradesh witnesses a change in leadership, the BJP, with its dominant victory securing 163 out of 230 seats, signals a new era under Mohan Yadav's governance. Chouhan's dignified acceptance of the party's decision sets a precedent for political leaders, emphasizing the importance of selfless service over personal ambition.
