'Ending 30 years of political career, clinic awaits in Krishnanagar': Dr Harsh Vardhan

h

NEW DELHI : Former Union Minister Dr Harsh Vardhan leaves politics. Chandni Chowk MP Harsha Vardhan was absent when candidates were announced for five of the seven seats in Delhi. Praveen Khandelwal has got the seat instead. Union Ministers Meenakshi Lekhi, Parvesh Verma, Ramesh Bidhuri and others were also excluded.

Dr. Harsh Vardhan wrote on X yesterday that he is ending his political career of more than thirty years and the ENT clinic in Krishnanagar is waiting for him.

Opposition parties asked why BJP left out more than 33 sitting MPs in the first list. In Madhya Pradesh, seven MPs, including Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur, were not given seats. 15 out of 26 seats in Gujarat have been declared, but five sitting MPs are absent. In Jharkhand, former Union Minister Jayant Sinha will be replaced by Manish Jaiswal and three-time Lok Sabha member Sudarshan Bhagta will be contested by Sameer Oron.

Out of the 11 seats announced in Assam, five are freshers. Congress asked whether sitting MPs were denied seats because they were incompetent. Congress spokesperson Pawan Khera demanded that Prime Minister Narendra Modi should apologize for imposing them on the people.

Samajwadi president Akhilesh Yadav alleged that the BJP retained many sitting MPs out of fear of riots in the party. Aam Aadmi Party leader and Delhi Health Minister Saurabh Bharadwaj accused BJP members of not being in Parliament when people needed the support of the central government.
