Jaswant Singh files nomination as independent candidate from Barmer
Defying the BJP over ticket denial, Jaswant Singh on Monday filed his nomination papers as an independent candidate from Barmer Lok Sabha seat.
The 76-year-old leader, who was accompanied by some of his supporters, filed the nomination papers in four sets in the collector’s office.
The former Union Minister decided to contest the Lok Sabha elections as an independent after the BJP fielded former Congress MLA Sonaram Chowdhry, who last week joined BJP from the Barmer seat.
