BJP’s Moradabad candidate for LS polls dies a day after polling

BJP candidate from Moradabad Sarvesh Singh passed away on Saturday, a day after he cast his vote, along with his family members, in the first phase polling for the Lok Sabha seat held on Friday.

The news of Singh’s sudden demise sent a wave of mourning not only to the party but to the entire area. Initially, his death is attributed to a heart attack. However, it has not been officially confirmed as yet.

Kunwar Sarvesh Kumar Singh of the BJP was elected MLA from the Thakurdwara assembly seat in the years 1991, 1993, 1996, 2002, and 2012 (five times). He was elected MP in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections.

In 2019, he was defeated by SP’s S T Hasan. His son, Shushant Singh, has been the MLA from the Badapur assembly seat of the Bijnor district.

DM Manvendra Singh confirmed the information about the death of BJP candidate Kunwar Sarvesh Kumar.

He said this would not affect the election process but the counting of votes would also be held on the scheduled date. If the BJP wins the election, a by-election would be held and if the BJP loses, nothing can be done.
