Sumitra Mahajan was ready to contest but party leadership had other plans
INDORE: Lok Sabha speaker and eight time member of parliament (MP) Sumitra Mahajan wanted to contest and was even holding meetings in the constituency when she got the signal that party doesn't want her to contest the election.
Mahajan was earlier told that once again she would contest and hence when she came to Indore, she started meeting supporters and got ready for the campaign. There was no other name sent by party from Indore.
Yet, she kept waiting and though lists came, candidate's name was kept on hold for Indore. Sensing that party was not in the mood to field her, she made public the letter. Mahajan who started political career from municipal body & reached the zenith, has finally bid adieu to electoral politics.
