After BJP announcement of list of candidates for 176 seats in Rajasthan assembly elections, candidates who have been denied ticket showing their emotions. Four-times MLA from Baran-Atru constituency and former social welfare minister Madan Dilawar couldn’t control his tears after being denied ticket.

Expressing their opposition to some BJP nominees, at least three sitting and former MLAs and several leaders have quit the party. While some have joined other regional parties, many are set to contest as independent candidates.

Madan Dilawar, who filed his nomination papers from the Ladpura constituency as an independent candidate said that he would fight polls for the sake of his mother. “I lost my father while campaigning for BJP. Still, the party denied ticket,” said an emotional Dilawar.

“Now, my 92-year-old mother wants me to fight polls. Certainly, I shall be contesting polls this year,” he asserted.

Dilawar will now challenge his former party colleague Bhawani Singh Rajawat. Unhappy over candidature of Bhawani Singh Rajawat, he said, “I think Rajawat has played a key role in scrapping of my ticket.”

He added that Vasundhara Raje was provided with wrong information about him.

Dilawar said that his sons would also contest polls. “My younger son Pawan would fight polls from Kota (South) while my elder son Deepak from Bundi and Hindauli,” he stated.

The former minister, however, is still hopeful of being considered for the Baran-Atru seat by BJP, and said, if not, he would file another nomination from the seat on November 11.

Dilawar has Rs. 3 cr property, as mentioned by him in his election candidature.
