Bengaluru: Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge has called a meeting of the party leaders from Madhya Pradesh on May 29 to discuss the poll preparedness for Assembly elections in the crucial state.

To be chaired by Kharge, the meeting will be attended by several top leaders of the state, including former chief minister Kamal Nath, senior party leader Digvijay Singh, state in-charge J.P. Agarwal besides 10 others, sources said.

Madhya Pradesh is scheduled to go to polls in December.

Earlier, the meeting was supposed to take place on May 26. However, it was rescheduled due to discussion on the Karnataka cabinet expansion, which went on for two days.

Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah and his deputy D.K. Shivakumar held a meeting with the top leadership on Thursday and Friday to discuss the cabinet expansion in the state.

During the May 29 meeting, the party is likely to announce its chief ministerial candidate as well as the guarantees for the people.

The Congress will also decide on the campaign strategy for the state.

Notably, in the last few days, several prominent leaders of the BJP have switched over to the Congress in the state.

The Congress had come to power in 2018 with Kamal Nath as its chief minister. However, the government fell after the rebellion by Jyotiraditya Scindia who along with his several MLAs joined the BJP in March 2020.

The Congress is hoping to return to power in the state alleging corruption, deteriorating law and order situation and huge anti-incumbency against the ruling BJP.
