After Sumitra Mahajan's announcement of not contesting Lok Sabha polls, it was being speculated that Vijayvargiya would be fielded from Indore.

Vijayvargiya will be focusing on campaigning for PM Modi instead, he announced on Twitter. He said that though the public of Indore, party workers and his well-wishers wanted him to contest, he was ‘working for bringing back Prime Minister Narendra Modi for a prosperous and developed country.’
इंदौर की जनता,कार्यकर्ता व देशभर के शुभचिंतकों की इच्छा है कि मैं LS चुनाव लड़ूं,पर हमसभी की प्राथमिकता समर्थ+समृद्ध भारत के लिये श्री @narendramodi को पुनः PM बनाना है— Chowkidar Kailash Vijayvargiya (@KailashOnline) April 17, 2019
पश्चिमबंगाल की जनता मोदीजी के साथ खड़ी है,मेरा बंगाल रहना कर्तव्य है,अतः मैंने चुनाव न लड़ने का निर्णय लिया है https://t.co/5x3QG0mNuI
“The public of West Bengal is standing with Modiji so my stay at West Bengal is imperative. I have decided not to contest polls,” he said in another tweet.
He urged his supporters to make the next BJP candidate victorious and pleaded with voters to 'help NDA register a win for a strong PM in Narendra Modi and a strong government'.
After Mahajan’s decision to stay out of fray, it was being speculated that Vijayvargiya, her long-time adversary, would be party’s pick from Indore. However, citing West Bengal responsibility, his close aides said that it was highly unlikely that Vijayvargiya would contest Lok Sabha elections.
Besides, Mahajan had arrived in New Delhi on Sunday to meet party seniors and it was speculated that she would not agree on Vijayvargiya’s name.
Vijayvargiya, who had lobbied hard for his son Akash for Assembly ticket last year, was made to sacrifice his own ticket from Mhow.
The Congress has named senior leader Pankaj Sanghvi from Indore while the BJP is expected to name its choice on Wednesday. Mayor Malini Gaud is now the frontrunner in the race for the ticket in Indore.
