Ansari, who was present in a court on Wednesday to attend hearing in a case, told reporters while interacting with them.

He also dismissed the speculations of fielding Begum Afsha Ansari from Ghosi and Varanasi saying that he himself will contest from both constituencies on Kaumi Ekta Manch’s ticket.

Talking about the developmental works initiated and undertaken in the constituency, Ansari said that things got hit to an extent as he was in jail but he is putting in all efforts to develop the area.

It needs to be mentioned here that Ansari lost the Varanasi seat to BJP leader Murli Manohar Joshi with a margin of nearly 15, 000 votes. This time, the BJP shifted Joshi to Kanpur to field Modi from Varanasi.

After the announcement of AAP convenor to give challenge to Modi, Varanasi seat is all set to witness triangular contest between Modi, Ansari and Kejriwal.
