Senior BSP leader and UP social welfare minister Indrajeet Saroj’s fate will be sealed in the Electronic Voting Machine (EVM) in the third phase on February 15 for Manjhanpur (SC) constituency.

He is pitted against Mahendra Gautam of Congress, Suresh Chand Nagar of the Bharatiya Janata Party and Shivmohan Chowdhery of the Samajwadi Party.

In 2007 Assembly polls, Saroj had defeated Suresh Pasi of the SP by a huge margin. Three-time MLA Saroj was instrumental behind the BSP’s land slide victory.
Political observers say that this time too, the fight may be two cornered between the BSP and the SP.
