Amarwara assembly bypoll 2024: The Congress party on Wednesday announced Dheeran Shah Invati as its candidate for the upcoming assembly bypoll to the Amarwara seat in Madhya Pradesh. The bypoll will be held on July 10 for the Amarwara seat located in Chhindwara district. The seat is reserved for Scheduled Tribe (ST) candidates. 

Invati, the son of Sukhram Dada, who serves in the court of Anchal Kund Darbar, comes from a family esteemed for their influence among the local tribal communities. It is being said that that Dheeran Shah Invati has been favoured by senior Congress leader Kamal Nath for the bypoll. The last date for filing nomination in Amarwada bypoll is June 21. The polling is scheduled to take place on July 10 and counting of votes will take place on July 13. 

BJP fields Congress turncoat from Amarwara

Earlier on Tuesday, three-time MLA Kamlesh Shah, who quit the Congress ahead of the Lok Sabha elections and joined the BJP, filed his nomination for the Amarwara bypoll. Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Mohan Yadav and BJP’s state president Vishnu Dutt Sharma were present when Shah filed his nomination papers.

In a major setback to the Congress ahead of the Lok Sabha polls, Shah, a three-time party MLA from the Amarwara assembly segment under Chhindwara Lok Sabha seat and close confidante of former CM Kamal Nath, resigned on March 29 and joined the ruling BJP soon after. Shah later resigned from the membership of the state assembly, paving the way for the by-poll on the Amarwara seat. 

BJP sweeps Madhya Pradesh in Lok Sabha polls 

In the recently concluded Lok Sabha polls, the BJP won all 29 parliamentary seats in Madhya Pradesh, including Chhindwara, the only seat that it had failed to win in the 2019 general elections. The Election Commission announced bypolls to 13 assembly constituencies across seven states, including Amarwara in Madhya Pradesh, on July 10.
