On 11 Dec 2023, Mohan Yadav, MLA from Ujjain Dakshin was designated as the Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh replacing Shivraj Singh Chouhan. The decision was taken in a meeting between elected BJP MLAs of the state and central party observers.

This decision was made a day after Vishnu Deo Sai became the CM of Chhattisgarh.

It is a tradition in Indian politics that if a sitting CM does not continue even when the party gets re-elected, they are given a central leadership role, preferably as a Union Minister.

Possible Ministries for Shivraj Singh Chouhan

The designation of an ex-CM as Union Minister had happened after Assam CM Sarbananda Sonowal got his party re-elected in the 2021 Assam Assembly Elections. Later, Hemanta Biswa Sarma became the CM and Sonowal was sworn in as a Union Minister.

We might witness the a Union Ministry role for Shivraj Singh Chauhan with my experience indicating a heavier ministry such as:

  • Ministry of AYUSH
  • Ministry of Communication
  • Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology
  • Ministry of Steel
  • Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs
