Rajastha CM Update: Bhajan Lal Sharma has been appointed as the CM of Rajasthan. Bhajan Lal Sharma, a member of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), has been elected as the new MLA for the Sanganer constituency in Jaipur, marking his first foray into the legislative assembly. The BJP chose Sharma over incumbent MLA Ashok Lahoti for the 2023 elections. Sharma secured a resounding victory, defeating his Congress opponent Pushpendra Bhardwaj by a margin of 48,081 votes.

Joshi. On Monday, the BJP had named a surprise pick as the new Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh – Mohan Yadav (58), a leader from the Yadav OBC community.
