One mistake of Congress in Mathura

May 28 2023

Due to a mistake of the Congress in the recent civic elections in Uttar Pradesh, Congress could not make its mayor in the municipal corporations. In fact, on April 16, Congress state president Brijlal Khabri gave Form 7A to Shyam Sundar Upadhyay Bittu along with giving the party symbol for the election and Bittu got involved in the preparations for the election. Meanwhile, Rajkumar Rawat left the BSP and joined the Congress. Khabri then asked Bittu to return the symbol as he now wanted Rawat to be the candidate. But Bittu went to the court, the court upheld his election symbol, so the Congress had to field Rawat as an independent. At the same time, Congress got Rawat complete support from SP and RLD as well. Rawat’s main contest was against Sunil Bansal’s relative and BJP candidate Vinod Agarwal. When the results of the election were declared, the BJP won the election with a record 1,45,720 votes, the BSP came second with 35,191 votes, and Shyam Sundar, an independent, got 35,173 votes, while Rawat came fourth with 30,247 votes.
