BJP fields 2012 loser for bypoll

In his first decision regarding party affairs in his home state after his unanimous election as BJP national president, Rajnath Singh on Friday gave his consent to the selection of Rajkumar Shahi as party candidate for Bhatpar Rani Assembly by-election, which has been caused by the death of Sports Minister Kameshwar Upadhyay.

Shahi had contested the general election in 2012 as BJP nominee and secured fourth spot with 11,353 votes. His security deposit was also forfeited. State BJP president Laxmikant Bajpai announced Shahi's candidature after consultation with Rajnath Singh and national general secretary (organisation) Ramlal. The by-election is scheduled for February 23.
