News Daily Digital Desk: The BJP has given a ticket to the wife of former BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar, who was convicted in the Unnao rape case in Uttar Pradesh. A few days later, votes were cast in five districts in the Yogi Panchayat district panchayat elections. Earlier, Kuldeep’s wife got permission to contest the election. Incidentally, Kuldeep’s wife Sangeeta became the president of the district panchayat in 2016. At that time, the MLA was Kuldeep.
Kuldeep Senegar has been sentenced to 10 years in prison by a Tishazari court. He was accused of raping a minor in 2016. Not only that, the former BJP MLA was also convicted of killing Unnao’s tortured father. Kuldeep’s brother Atul Senegar and six others were also sentenced in the same case. Kuldeep is currently serving his sentence in Tihar Jail. The BJP removed him from the party after allegations were made against him. Earlier, his membership in the Uttar Pradesh Legislative Assembly was also rejected.

The question naturally arises, why did Kuldeep give his wife a ticket even after he was removed from the team? According to party sources, Uttar Pradesh BJP state president Swatantra Dev Singh and secretary Sunil Banashal have approved the stand for the music vote. Although Kuldeep and his brother are in jail, their family influence is still there in the area. Since Kuldeep’s arrest in 2016, there has been a lot of sympathy for his family in the area. It is believed that the Gerua camp is giving Sangeeta a chance to stand for election by judging those factors.
Incidentally, the BJP had to feel uneasy about the rape case of Unnao, which has caused a stir in the whole country. He was later expelled from the team. But it is clear from the opportunity given to Sangeetha to stand in the polls, the Gerua camp is not willing to miss the opportunity to keep Kuldeep’s family influential in local politics.
