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.

    The party BJP does not even respect their own party leaders. This shows the work culture that this party has. I wonder how this party is surviving. This party is always involved in unrestful activities and is not the right party to be given the responsibility of handling the affairs of the country.
