The fight for Assembly ticket of Govindpura constituency of State capital has now narrowed down further as former Chief Minister and veteran BJP leader Babulal Gaur, who has been representing Govindpura seat regularly over the years, is once again flexing muscles to contest election. Even his daughter-in-law and former Mayor Krishna Gaur is also keen to fight from Govindpura seat.  This has increased the problems of BJP. it is being told that Babulal Gaur would settle down for nothing rather ticket either to him or his daughter-in-law.

On Saturday, Krishna Gaur tried to show strength by discussing with her supporters. In the meantime, news came that Congress State President Kamal Nath has also spoken to Babulal Gaur on mobile phone. This development has created flutter in BJP as supporters of Gaur family told that if Gaur family is ignored in ticket distribution then all of them would resign from BJP. Sources said, Babulal Gaur has preferred to speak after two days. This is being seen as feeler of Gaur to BJP. Notably, names of present Bhopal Mayor Alok Sharma, BJP General Secretary V D Sharma and Tapan Bhaumik are doing rounds for Govindpura seat.
