Bhopal (Madhya Pradesh): Former deputy collector Nisha Bangre on Wednesday announced plans to contest the upcoming election after the state government accepted her resignation on Tuesday.
Bangre told media that the Congress had promised to give her a ticket and wait for the acceptance of her resignation till the last day of filing nomination.
Now that her resignation has been accepted, the Congress should clear its stand, but, in any case, she will contest the election, Bangre said.
The former deputy collector said she wanted to meet MPCC president Kamal Nath to know his stand on the issue.
Bangre said that she wanted to become part of the democratic process by contesting an election, and that when she was struggling, the Congress supported her.
But the Congress is in a dilemma over giving her a ticket from Amla constituency from where the party has already given a ticket to Manoj Malwe. So, the Congress’s confusion over the issue has increased.
Because Malwe has begun campaigning, changing candidate at this juncture, may lead to rebellion by him.
