On the lookout to swap chairs

July 08 2013

Several big BJP leaders are looking at changing their constituencies in the coming elections. For instance, Advani wants to contest the elections from Bhopal instead of Gandhinagar. But veteran leader Kailash Joshi didn’t agree to leave that seat. So, another prominent BJP leader Sushma Swaraj has agreed to relinquish her constituency Vidisha for Advani. But Advani’s problem is that Madhya Pradesh’s former State Finance Minister Raghavji, who is mired in a sex scandal, wields considerable clout in the area. So the move may not pay off. Now Advani has his eyes set on Delhi. Sushma Swaraj may contest the elections from Haryana’s Faridabad, or from Delhi. Maneka Gandhi wants to go back to her seat in Pilibhit. Varun Gandhi wants to remain the sultan of Sultanpur, his father’s constituency. Instead of Bhagalpur, Shahnawaz Hussain wants to go to Araria from Bhagalpur. Rajnath Singh is eyeing Lucknow and Gautambudh Nagar instead of Ghaziabad. Narendra Modi, too, wants to contest the Lok Sabha elections this time and his eyes are set on some place near Uttar Pradesh – Lucknow, Varanasi, Allahabad or Kanpur. But he might even contest the elections from Mehasana in Gujarat.
