Former BJP MP Lal Muni Choubey withdrew from the Buxar race as an Independent after party’s PM candidate Narendra Modi persuaded him not to contest against its nominee Ashwini Kumar Choubey.
Lal Muni Choubey said he would not contest any election in his life. The former Buxar MP said, “I have raised voice against the party snubbing senior leaders like L K Advani and Jaswant Singh. I stick to it. When Modiji gave me a patient hearing, I decided not to contest against the party candidate”.
Lal Muni Choubey had lost the last Lok Sabha election to RJD’s Jagdanand Singh by over 2,200 votes.
