Maha Polls: Supporters Protest after BJP Releases 4th List Of Candidates

Updated 04 Oct 2019 09:10 PM

 On the final day of filing of nominations on Friday, several big shots, including sitting and former ministers of the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), got a big shock after they failed to get a ticket for contesting the October 21 Maharashtra Assembly elections.

In the fourth list released, Education Minister Vinod Tawade, Energy Minister Chandrashekhar Bawankule and Raj Purohit, who was accorded a minister-status, find no mention.

Besides, two former ministers -- the once de facto No. 2 Eknath Khadse and senior leader Prakash Mehta -- have also been denied nomination.

Interestingly, three of them -- Tawade, Purohit and Mehta -- have also served as former presidents of the power Mumbai BJP unit.
