All eyes will be on the Sehore Municipal Council results, which also happens to be in the home district of Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan. Ahead of the civic polls, Chouhan had held road shows and public rallies at Budhni and Ashta cities in Sehore, campaigning for the local BJP candidates. He attacked the Congress for neglecting the Ashta Municipality for long, alleging that the funds sent by his government for developing proper drinking water systems were not utilised by the Congress-dominated city council.

At a public rally, CM Chouhan had said that the properties of those who try to disrupt law and order will be strictly dealt with and their properties will be razed, if they “cast an evil eye on our brothers and sisters.” CM Chouhan also promised the people of Budhni a medical college with 750 beds.
