BJP politician Brij Bhushan Singh—the contentious former head of the Wrestling Federation of India (WFI) who was accused of sexual harassment by female wrestlers—made a approval that he would run for Lok Sabha from the Kaiserganj seat in Uttar Pradesh. The candidate of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for the Kaiserganj seat has not yet been revealed.

“At this time, I am not a candidate. In the Kaiserganj Lok Sabha seat, however, the BJP is the only contender. I received over two lakh votes to win the seat the last time. This time, the labourers have demanded five lakh votes “An ANI report cited the Kaiserganj MP who is now in office.

According to Brij Bhushan, there wouldn’t be a contest for the Kaiserganj seat even if the BJP revealed its candidate an hour beforehand.
“What can I do if this is God’s will? However, I will contest 99.9% of the vote because I am a powerful candidate; only 0.1% will remain. People would force me to win even if the party announced the candidate an hour beforehand, he declared.

On May 20, Kaiserganj will host polling places for the fifth phase of the Lok Sabha elections. In the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, Brij Bhushan received 5,81,358 votes, which gave him a commanding lead. Chandradev Ram Yadav of the BSP received more than 3.19 lakh votes, while Vinay Kumar Pandey of the Congress received 37,132.
