For­mer MP Congress chief files nom­i­na­tion

Hindustan Times (Patiala) - - Nation -

On the last day of fil­ing of nom­i­na­tion, for­mer Mad­hya Pradesh Congress chief Arun Ya­dav filed his nom­i­na­tion pa­pers from the Budhni assem­bly seat in Se­hore district on Fri­day, vow­ing to up­stage CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan, who won the last elec­tion by gar­ner­ing nearly 70% of the votes. In a sur­prise move, Ya­dav’s name was an­nounced on Thurs­day night. Congress lead­ers say this was part of a strat­egy to en­sure Chouhan re­mains con­fined to his tra­di­tional seat that he has held since by­polls in 2006.
