In an ideal circumstance of double the standards on dynastic politics, as the ruling BJP in the Madhya Pradesh does not see anything wrong in CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan‘s silent, but consistent attempts to usher his son Kartikeya into politics. The elder son of Madhya Pradesh CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan, Karthikeya Chouhan has recently despatched a speech at Jait, the chief minister’s inherited village on the banks of river Narmada, during the ongoing Namami Devi Narmada Yatra. The Yatra is anticipated at turning river conservation into a wide-ranging movement, but the focus at the Jait occasion clearly was on Kartikey Chouhan. Likewise, clean Ganga-Funds flows generously for the project, and however, the project is far from cleaning.
Apart from what he had spoken, the highlight of the event was that he had got prominence over many ministers who were present and CM Chouhan and his wife were in attendance. The BJP has perhaps realized that Kartikey’s record into the electoral arena is just a matter of time and has just started saying there is nothing wrong if he makes a foray into politics.
“Everyone knows that the chief minister doesn’t go to his constituency. He takes care of the remaining voters in the state, and all the political work in Budhni is taken care of by Kartikey. He has also worked in ABVP and has gradually moved up, and is presently working for the BJP. He has also established his credentials on his merit,” BJP spokesman Dr.Hitesh Vajpayee said.
It is not the first time that Kartikeya has given signals of where his interests lie. In January 2017, he was the chief guest at a prize distribution function in Budhni, and on June 2017, he had addressed a public event for voters awareness in Nasrullaganj. The Opposition Congress, for now, hopes that continues barbs thrown at it for practicing dynastic politics will stop.

KK Mishra Congress spokesman said, “We have no issues on anyone joining politics, but if the BJP now states anything on dynastic politics they should be ashamed of themselves.”
Kartikey Chouhan is a law graduate from the Symbiosis College in Pune, and in the past, he has even expressed his desire to serve people. He will be 24 in 2018 when Madhya Pradesh goes to the polls and would not be eligible to contest elections. BJP insiders are now guessing if he would be making a direct entry into the Lok Sabha in 2019. The Lok Sabha has earlier passed the four GST bills after Finance Minister Arun Jaitley allayed fears of a price spike in the new indirect tax regime.
