Nand Kumar Singh Chauhan’s political journey
Nandkumar Singh Chauhan was born on 8 September 1952 in Shahpur in Burhanpur district. After post graduate education, he chose politics as his career and joined BJP. Shahpur Burhanpur was the city president, winning the BJP as president from 1978-80 and 1983-87 in Shahpur municipality located in Burhanpur district. After this, he was elected MLA from Burhanpur constituency of Madhya Pradesh Legislative Assembly after winning two consecutive terms from 1985-96. In the 11th Lok Sabha election in 1996, the BJP made him an MP candidate from Khandwa region. He was victorious in this, but his tenure remained till 1996-97, because the Atal Bihari Vajpayee government resigned and the government was revoked. After this, he won the Khandwa constituency for the second time in the 12th Lok Sabha election in 1998. This tenure also lasted till 1998-99, mainly due to withdrawal of support of the party supporting the Vajpayee government. In the 13th Lok Sabha by-election in 1999, BJP again fielded him as a candidate from Khandwa region. In this too, he won for the third time. It completed his tenure for 5 years from 1999-2004.
After this, in the 14th Lok Sabha election in 2004, he again won for the fourth time by winning the election of MP from Khandwa region but he sat in the opposition because Manmohan Singh’s Congress government was formed at the center. Then in the 15th Lok Sabha election of 2009, he again made BJP candidate from Khandwa region, but this time he lost the election to Congress candidate Arun Yadav. He was made BJP state president of Madhya Pradesh, but in the 2013 Madhya Pradesh assembly elections, he was removed and made Narendra Singh Tomar as state president. He was again fielded by the BJP from Khandwa constituency in the 16th Lok Sabha election. In this he won the election. He was again made the state president of Madhya Pradesh BJP, but in 2018, he resigned as BJP state president. So that they can do development work in their parliamentary constituency.
