Rajya Sabha Election: The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Monday released the second list of candidates for the upcoming Rajya Sabha elections. BJP has not nominated any of its Muslim leaders for the Rajya Sabha. The name of Union Minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi was also missing from this list of BJP. In such a situation, the ministerial post of Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi is under threat. Because if Naqvi does not reach the Parliament, then in such a situation he may have to leave the ministerial post within 6 months.
Now that Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi’s name is missing from the list of BJP candidates, the question arises whether the party is thinking of fielding him in the Lok Sabha by-election to be held in Rampur. Let us inform that in the UP assembly elections, Samajwadi Party leader Azam Khan had won the election. Since then this seat is vacant. After the arrival of Azam Khan in the assembly, BJP is trying to win this seat.
Will Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi contest in Rampur bypoll?
BJP is planning to field Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi for the Lok Sabha by-election from Rampur seat. Speculations of this also increase because Naqvi had earlier contested from Rampur in the 1998 elections, in which he had won. After the victory in the elections, Naqvi became a minister in the then Atal Bihari Vajpayee government. He was given the responsibility of the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting at that time. Let us inform that the by-election in Rampur is to be held on June 23. Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi is a big Muslim face of BJP. After Naqvi did not get a Rajya Sabha ticket, the market for political speculation is hot.
Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi reached Rajya Sabha from Jharkhand
Let us tell you that Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi was elected to the Rajya Sabha from Jharkhand in 2016. His term ends on July 7. This time the BJP has replaced Aditya Sahu as the Rajya Sabha candidate from Jharkhand. Apart from Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi, RCP Singh, a minister in the Modi government, has also not got a Rajya Sabha ticket.
