By IndianMandarins- 01 Apr 2019


After marking their indelible presence in Uttar Pradesh's Ayodhya, Gonda, and other districts during their service period, a number of former civil servants including police officers have decided to test their political fortune by contesting the 2019 LS Polls.


Former Union Secretary Vijay Shankar Pandey (Retd IAS:1979: UP) who once served in Ayodhya as DM will contest from this LS seat as his own Lok Gathbandhan Party (LGP) candidate. He served as Faizabad DM immediately after the disputed structure’s demolition during the Ram Mandir agitation in 1992.


Former IPS officer Kush Saurabh will contest from Bansgaon seat as a Congress candidate. He has served in many districts of the Purvanchal region during his service period.


Ram Bahadur, formerly Gonda DM, is also trying his luck as the Nagrikta Ekta Party candidate from Gonda after the seat went to the SP as part of the BSP-SP alliance. He contested the 2014 polls as the BSP candidate from Mohanlalganj seat but lost.
