In a fresh twist of events,  the BJP in its final list announced Tekchand Sawarkar as its candidate from Kamptee constituency. Until last moment, it was being said that the front runner for the seat was Anil Nidhan. However, the party didn’t approve Jyoti Chandrashekhar Bawankule’s candidature, who had filed her nomination papers from the same constituency in the afternoon today. If sources are to be believed, Jyoti would be fighting the elections independently.
