Lok Sabha Elections-2024: Congress Takes This Action amid Kangana Ranaut vs Supriya Shrinate Row

Lok Sabha Elections-2024: The Congress party decided to drop Supriya Shrinate as a candidate from the constituency she contested in 2019, amidst escalating controversy over her remarks concerning actor Kangana Ranaut, who is the BJP's nominee from Mandi, Himachal Pradesh. Shrinate had previously contested the Lok Sabha polls from Maharajganj in Uttar Pradesh but was defeated by the BJP's Pankaj Chaudhary.

This time, the Congress has selected Virendra Chaudhary as its candidate for the seat, replacing Shrinate, who finds herself embroiled in a significant political storm due to her social media post about Kangana Ranaut.

On Monday, an objectionable post appeared on Shrinate's Instagram account featuring Kangana Ranaut along with a derogatory caption. Shrinate promptly clarified that multiple individuals have access to her social media accounts, and one of them posted the inappropriate content.

"As soon as I became aware, I removed that post. Anyone who knows me well is aware that I never indulge in personal or indecent remarks against any woman. I am keen to ascertain how this occurred," she stated.

Earlier in the day, the Election Commission issued a show-cause notice to Shrinate regarding her post.

On Wednesday, the Congress unveiled its eighth list of candidates for the upcoming Lok Sabha polls, announcing 14 candidates for four states - Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, Telangana, and Jharkhand. The party has declared a total of 208 candidates thus far.

In Jharkhand, Kalicharan Munda was named for the Khunti (ST) constituency, Sukhdeo Bhagat for Lohardaga (ST), and Jaiprakashbhai Patel for Hazaribagh.

For Telangana, Suguna Kumari Chelimala was chosen for Adilabad, Tatiparthi Jeevan Reddy for Nizamabad, Neelam Madhu for Medak, and Chamala Kiran Kumar Reddy for Bhongir.
