Now, the by-poll in the constituency is scheduled in the coming months. The Congress party has started preparations to contest the election.
The state vice-president, Prakash Jain, said that the DCC president of Damoh, including the in-charge of the constituency, presidents of the department and the leaders of the frontal organisations participated in the meeting. The leaders presented the demographic details to the former chief minister and also the current political scenario.
