The parliamentary constituency of Jaipur votes on May 6th. Will the BJP MP be able to win his seat a second time, even after a strong anti-incumbency wave cost his party the Assembly elections last year? His main rival: former mayor and Jaipur’s first woman candidate in 48 years, fielded by the Congress.
The BJP dropped its sitting MP in the constituency, Kirit Somaiya, after objections from ally Shiv Sena and chose three-time Mulund corporator Manoj Kotak to contest from the seat, with INC’s Sanjay Dina Patil as the chief rival. Who else are in the fray as Mumbai North East votes to elect its representative in the Lok Sabha?
