Chinchwad bypoll election, will he stand in Chinchwad bypoll, will he become an MLA? Big statement of Laxman Jagtap’s brother – Laxman Jagtap brother Shankar Jagtap comment on Chinchwad bypoll election
The Election Commission had announced that polling would be held on February 27, 2023 in the two assembly constituencies Kasba Peth and Chinchwad in Pune, which fell vacant due to the death of BJP MLAs Mukta Tilak and Laxman Jagtap. But now the polling date has been changed and this election will be held on 26th February instead of 27th February and counting of votes will be done on 2nd March 2023.
Meanwhile, chances of Chinchwad by-election going uncontested are very low. As the Chinchwad seat is held by the NCP, the NCP has entrusted the responsibility of winning the respective seat to Ajit Pawar. Mavia will also fight this election with full strength against BJP. Therefore, it will be important to see who the BJP nominates in Chinchwad.
However, there is a strong discussion that Shankar Jagtap, brother of late Laxman Jagtap, can get candidature. Today’s BJP core committee meeting was held. Laxman Jagtap’s wife Ashwini Jagtap and his brother Shankar Jagtap were invited in this. Is the media hopeful of Shankar Jagtap’s candidacy at this time? Shankar Jagtap said that he came here for this purpose.
