When it comes to significant seats in Madhya Pradesh assembly elections, Bhopal South-west assembly seat cannot be ignored. It is one of the state's high-profile seats. MLA from this seat, Umashankar Gupta is a minister in the Shivraj's cabinet. Mostly, BJP remained a winner on the seat. There are 2 lakh 85 thousand voters in the Bhopal South-West Assembly constituency.

If you talk about caste equation in Bhopal south-west seat, there are 35 thousand Brahmins, 25 to 30 thousand Kayasthas, and around 30 thousand Muslim population. Many IAS and IPS officers live in this area. Apart from these, this constituency has slum voters & working class in majority. Slum voters are in a decisive state, but the situation of slums is worse. If we talk about jobs for the youth in the region, it is almost equal to zero. Youths are clearly expressing their views about the failures of the government. The educated youth believe that if unemployed youth had got the job, they would not have gone towards crime. Overall, in addition to the basic issues in the Bhopal South-West Assembly, caste equations can also spoil electoral equations.
