To take on BJP’s chief ministerial candidate,Dr Harsh Vardhan,the Congress has fielded an ex-BJP man,who is also a doctor.

Dr Vinod Kumar Monga,who left the BJP “due to differences with Harsh Vardhan,will now give him a fight from the Krishna Nagar constituency”.

Monga blames Harsh Vardhan for hampering his growth within the party and forcing him to resign.

“I was fed up with the internal politics of the BJP,especially regarding Harsh Vardhan’s role. He was instrumental in ensuring that I did not get a promotion while I was part of the BJP. That is why I decided to join the Congress about two months ago,’’ Monga said.

Monga,who was a councillor in the erstwhile Municipal Corporation of Delhi before the 2012 municipal elections,also held the post of health committee chairman. He was denied a ticket in the 2012 municipal elections. He is also a former president of Delhi Medical Association.

“We are going to give BJP’s CM candidate a fight to remember,’’ Monga said. A party source said,“This will be an interesting contest as both are from the same fraternity.”

Harsh Vardhan was not available for comment.
