Will not contest Beed by-poll: Pankaja Munde

Pankaja Munde

Pankaja MundeNashik: BJP MLA Pankaja Munde, daughter of late Gopinath Munde, said here that she will not contest the by-poll to Beed constituency that fell vacant after the demise of Munde.

Beed by-poll is scheduled to held on October 15 along with state Assembly elections to be conducted in single phase.

“I am not contesting Lok Sabha by-poll in Beed as I want to work in Maharashtra,” she said here last evening, addressing party workers.

Gopinath Munde died in a car accident in Delhi, in June, while on his way to the Indira Gandhi International airport.

Munde (35) said she is confident that the ruling Congress-NCP government will be thrown out of power in the upcoming assembly polls as Modi wave is very much strong.

“More than 100 scams were unearthed in last regime of the ruling government in irrigation, power and housing-scheme. My father had given justice to common man and stood by the farmers,” she said.

Touring in the state for her ‘sangharsha yatra’, she said a strong response for her yatra is a sign that the Modi wave, which swept the country in Lok Sabha 2014 election, still exists.

Her 14-day 3,000 km yatra will cover 71 Assembly constituencies in 21 districts of Maharashtra.
