- Amit Jani has announced candidature of his party candidates from 5 seats of UP
- Jani said the first candidate to be declared by the party is from Agra reserved seat
- Jani said his party will raise the Hindutva issue
In view of the 2019 elections, all political parties are trying to get some bargaining chips in their hands and luring new workers in their parties from other parties.
Shambhunath Raigar, who is presently accused of murdering a Muslim man and burning his body, will be contesting from Agra on the party ticket. Other candidates will be announced soon.
The Uttar Pradesh Navnirman Sena president Amit Jani has announced candidature of his party candidates from five seats of UP which includes Agra, Mathura, Aligarh, Firozabad and Noida.
Talking to India Today, Jani said the first candidate to be declared by the party is from Agra reserved seat.
Jani said his party will raise the Hindutva issue as it should be raised. The other political parties have merely used this word for their benefit and getting votes in the name of Hindutva while his party will really work for the Hindus of this country.
He said that the Hindu community stands with him as no other party can ensure that the Hindus are not oppressed. This is why the party has decided to independently field its own candidates from UP and not seek an alliance with any other major political party.
He said that he chose Agra as the first city to announce his party’s candidature as Agra is an international city and the defeat of all major political parties in this city will resound strongly in the power corridors of Delhi as well as internationally. He said that despite being such a wonderful city, Agra has been starving for development as the political leadership of Agra is weak. He assured that his party will give Agra its share of development if his candidate wins the 2019 election from here.
