Narayan is no less

January 11 2012

At last, a threat by veteran Congress leader Narayan Dutt Tiwari bore fruit and the Congress high command will have to take him a little bit more seriously, and several close aides of Tiwari have been given the ticket. Upset at being ignored, Tiwari ji had announced that he would ask all non-party contestants to fight elections from all 70 Assembly seats. Clearly, if Tiwari ji would have done that, the advantage would have gone to the BJP. So by way of acquiescing him, tickets were given to his nephew Manish Tiwari from Nainital, Harendra Sharma from Sahaspur, and his son-in-law Navprabhat from Vikas Nagar. In the last elections, too, Navprabhat had contested from Vikas Nagar of Dehradun on a Congress ticket and the BJP had given him a stiff fight there.
