RE­PEAT TROU­BLE

India Today - - GLASS HOUSE -

Union Min­is­ter Jy­oti­ra­ditya Scin­dia, 43, may have trou­ble in the Guna-Shivpuri con­stituency with BJP pit­ting its MLA Jaib­han Singh Pawaiya, 58, against him. Pawaiya, the sec­ond pres­i­dent of Ba­jrang Dal, lost Gwalior by a lit­tle over 20,000 votes in 1998. His com­peti­tor? The late Mad­havrao Scin­dia. Af­ter that poll, Mad­havrao shifted his con­stituency to Guna-Shivpuri, de­spite hav­ing de­feated for­mer PM Atal Bi­hari Va­j­payee from Gwalior by a mar­gin of over 100,000 votes in 1984. Jy­oti­ra­ditya has won Guna-Shivpuri con­stituency three con­sec­u­tive times by a hefty mar­gin af­ter his fa­ther’s demise.
