Sushma-Shivraj reciprocity

December 20 2018

Having stepped down after enjoying 15 years of power in Madhya Pradesh, Shivraj Singh Chouhan had to vacate his government house in Bhopal for newly-elected CM Kamal Nath. The outgoing CM was worried that the ruling Congress will allot him a small house in return. With this concern on his mind, he approached many senior party leaders.
Finally, Union External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj came to his rescue. Sushma left her official Bhopal residence, C-7 Civil Lines, for Shivraj. The house is spread over an area of eight acres. Shivraj feels immensely grateful towards his saviour. Sushma was anyway to vacate this house as she has already announced that due to health issues she will not contest the next Lok Sabha elections. It is possible she now eyes a Rajya Sabha ticket from Madhya Pradesh in getting which Shivraj will be of great help.
Shivraj indebted to Sushma for the house and may see the opportunity to help Sushma get into Rajya Sabha as a payback.
