Arjun Singh’s Name Doesn’t Appear in Star Campaigners List for By-elections

In Congress party’s list of star campaigners for the by-elections to the two assembly seats in Madhya Pradesh, senior leader and former union minister Arjun Singh’s name has not turned up.

According to reports, his name has been dropped on health grounds from the list that was submitted to the Madhya Pradesh Chief Election Officer yesterday.

Congress spokesman Arvind Malaviya was quoted as saying by PTI that there was no need to read anything in Singh’s exclusion from the campaign as it has been done merely on health grounds.

The star campaigners list contains 38 names, including Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, Congress president Sonia Gandhi, AICC general secretaries Rahul Gandhi, Digvijay Singh and B K Hari Prasad, Union Ministers Kamal Nath, Kapil Sibal, Kantilal Bhuria, Jyotiraditya Scindia, Arun Yadav and Sachin Pilot.
