Lone eunuch candidate loses

in INDIA, 12/01/2014

The lone eunuch candidate for the Bhubaneswar Municipal Corporation ( BMC) election from ward 15 has been defeated.

Menaka Kinnar (independent), however, termed the election outcome as a boon for the independents.

"I have not lost. I supported another independent candidate of the ward Samir Pradhan and helped him win. All my supporters fought for him," said Menaka, who could manage less than 100 votes. Samir got 1,400-odd votes.

Pratap Sahu, a supporter of Menaka said they always tried to defeat a candidate from a strong political party and they were successful in their mission. "With the two independent candidates together, we defeated the BJD candidate Ashok Raj," said Sahu.
