Rajasthan bypoll: Cong releases candidates’ list

Jaipur, March 27

The Congress has fielded former minister Master Bhanwarlal Meghwal’s son from the Sujangarh Assembly seat which fell vacant after his death last year and is among the three constituency’s going to bypolls next month in Rajasthan.

Manoj Meghwal will be contesting the byelection from Sujangarh against BJP leader and former minister Khemaram Meghwal. Bhanwarlal Meghwal, who was the state social justice and empowerment minister, died of brain stroke in November.

For the Sahara constituency, the Congress, the ruling party in Rajasthan, has fielded Gayatri Devi against BJP candidate and former MLA Ratanlal Jat. This seat fell vacant after her husband Kailash Trivedi died in October after being infected by Covid-19. Tansukh Bohara will be contesting the bypoll as Congress’ candidate from Rajsamand, which fell vacant after Kiran Maheshwari died due to Covid. — PTI
