The Madhya Pradesh polls are just a few months away. For chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan, this election promises to be a real challenge, especially as it comes just ahead of the Lok Sabha polls. No one knows what will happen in Madhya Pradesh, but it does appear to be an interesting fight, especially after the Congress won crucial bypolls in the state just weeks ago. So when the chief minister decided that five babajis would be given Minister of State ranks, it immediately raised eyebrows, these five babas or religious leaders are part of some committee that's been set up for the conversation of the River Narmada. Some of them were actually going to start a protest against the state for an alleged Narmada plantation scam. And one of the babas is called Computer Baba, because he claims to have a brain as sharp as a computer. So what made Shivraj Singh Chouhan do this? Is this a desperate attempt to play the saffron card ahead of the elections?
