“I have refused to contest election from Khandwa Lok Sabha seat due to personal and family reasons. I am thankful to the party and party president for showing confidence in me and giving me the opportunity to represent many posts. Now, I will work to strengthen the party in by-elections in four constituencies and will ensure the party's win. I believe that new and young people must get a chance to represent the party,” Yadav said.
