In an official release, Mahajan said that the party has been delaying the announcement of the candidate’s name from Indore which led her to assume that the BJP has hesitation in naming her its candidate from the parliamentary constituency of Indore.
The 75-year-old BJP veteran asserted that she had earlier spoken to senior party leaders, adding that the party can now feel free to name the candidate of its choice from Indore constituency.
There has been suspense over Mahajan getting the ticket for the Lok Sabha poll as she would turn 76 this month. Sumitra Mahajan has been an eight-time MP from Indore.
Mahajan has been consistently bagging the Indore seat since 1989. She had registered a massive victory against former chief minister and senior Congressman Prakash Chandra Sethi.
