The Madhya Pradesh BJP on Saturday withdrew the candidature of a girl for the upcoming civic polls after it was discovered that her husband was concerned in a number of legal instances in opposition to whom the stringent Nationwide Safety Act had been invoked earlier.
The BJP had introduced the identify of Swati Kashid as its candidate for Indore’s Ward 56 on Friday, but it surely was pulled again a day later.

“After the difficulty of Swati Kashid’s household background being legal was delivered to the information of the social gathering and Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan, her identify was withdrawn by following the zero tolerance coverage,” mentioned state BJP president VD Sharma.
