Meanwhile, during the counting of votes at the Nehru Stadium in the city, Guddu’s supporters created a ruckus alleging malfunctions in electronic voting machines. The Congress candidate’s son Ajit Baurasi alleged that his objections to the various irregularities in the counting process are being constantly ignored by the election officials.
Officials said that 16 elections have been held in Saver assembly constituency so far, including three by-elections. The biggest difference between the victory and defeat on Saver seat was recorded in the 2003 assembly elections. In these elections, BJP candidate Prakash Sonkar defeated his nearest rival Congress candidate Rajendra Malviya by 19,637 votes.
Let me tell you that Silavat was among the 22 rebel MLAs of the Congress whose resignation from the Assembly under the Scindia government and joining the BJP, the then Kamal Nath government was removed from power. After this, the BJP returned to power on March 23 under the leadership of Shivraj Singh Chauhan.
Silavat, who was the Minister of Public Health and Family Welfare in the previous Kamal Nath government, was elected MLA on a Congress ticket in the last assembly elections of 2018. But due to change of party, he appeared in recent by-elections seeking votes for “lotus flower” (BJP’s election symbol) instead of “hand claws” (Congress symbol).
A total of 13 candidates were in the fray in the by-elections held for the Sanwer seat. Despite the fear of Kovid-19, 78 percent of the 2.70 lakh voters of the region performed the duty of casting votes where the rural population is in abundance.
