Dadua’s son gets SP ticket from Chitrakoot
Veer Singh Patel, son of notorious dacoit Shiv Kumar Patel
alias Dadua, will be Samajwadi Party's candidate from Chitrakoot assembly
constituency. On Sunday, SP state president Akhilesh Yadav cancelled the
candidature of Sunil Patel who had earlier been given the ticket by the party.
Sunil Patel happens to be the son of SP MP from Chitrakoot RK Singh Patel.
This is the second time that SP reshuffled ticket allocation in Chitrakoot. Veer
Singh, who was allotted the ticket last year in April found his candidature
cancelled by December. Speaking to TOI, Veer Singh said that he was asked by SP
chief Mulayam Singh Yadav some nine months ago to nurture the constituency. "He(Mulayam)
had assured me a ticket when I met him after my candidature was cancelled by the
party in December," said Veer Singh.
