Oram & Vasava too among con­tenders

DNA (Daily News & Analysis) Mumbai Edition - - FRONT PAGE -

There is still a large pool of el­i­gi­ble MPS who have the re­quired ex­pe­ri­ence of five or six terms. They in­clude Jual Oram, five-term Tribal MP from Odisha, key state in BJP’S scheme of things; Man­sukhb­hai Vasava, another tribal from Gu­jarat and con­sid­ered close to PM Modi and was min­is­ter of state for tribal af­fairs in last gov­ern­ment; and Ramesh Chan­dappa Ji­ga­ji­nagi who rep­re­sents Bi­japur re­serve seat in Kar­nataka. On the ba­sis of sheer ex­pe­ri­ence, Anant Ku­mar Hegde also fits the cri­te­ria as he has been elected for six terms. But at 51, he is too young for the post and is also in­fa­mous for his caus­tic re­marks.
