BJP announces by-election candidates

|

New Delhi: The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) here on Monday announced the names of its candidates for the upcoming by-election of the Lok Sabha and of and Bihar.

For the two important seats Gorakhpur and Phulpur, it has fielded Upendra Shukla and Kaushalendra Singh respectively. While Pradeep Singh is fielded from  Araria parliamentary constituency in Bihar and Rinki Pandey from Bhabua constituency in Bihar.

Gorakhpur and Phulpur Lok Sabha constituencies were vacated by Chief Minister Adityanath and his deputy Keshav Prasad Maurya respectively after they became members of the UP Legislative Council. For the BJP, Gorakhpur is really important as it is the bastion of Adityanath, who has represented it in Lok Sabha five times. Prior to Adityanath, Gorakhpur was thrice represented in the Parliament by his mentor Avaidyanath.

On the other hand, Phulpur was once the bastion of the Congress and represented by first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru. It had for the first time witnessed a saffron surge in 2014 Lok Sabha elections when Maurya emerged victorious.

Meanwhile, the Congress and Samajwadi Party (SP) has decided to go separate ways in the by-poll for two Lok Sabha seats in Uttar Pradesh. It may be brightened the BJP’s prospects of retaining these seats as opposition votes will split with both the SP and the Congress in the fray.

The Samajwadi Party (SP) has already declared its support for Praveen Kumar Nishad, for the by-election to the Gorakhpur Lok Sabha seat. Praveen Kumar Nishad, who belongs to the Nishad Party, would contest on SP poll symbol – the bicycle. However, the party is yet to declare its for the Phulpur Lok Sabha seat.

Earlier, after deciding to go alone, the Congress, on 16 February, had declared its candidates for the parliamentary by-elections in Uttar Pradesh. Dr Sureetha is its for the Gorakhpur Lok Sabha by-poll, and local leader Manish Mishra will contest from the Phulpur parliamentary seat.

Voting for the Lok Sabha by-elections will be held on 11 , while counting of votes will be held on 14 .
