Uttar Pradesh elections: Union Home Minister and senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Rajnath Singh’s son Pankaj Singh has been booked for an election violation within days of being fielded in the prestigious Noida constituency by the party. This has come as a surprise as Pankaj has moulded himself in character with Rajnath’s politics that shuns extreme reactions against rivals, and which is much less rightist than that of the saffron party. The entire incident, for which Pankaj was booked for violating the model code of conduct ahead of the UP polls happened when he arrived in a flamboyant manner in six-seven cars and parked them within 100 metres of the poll centre. In his reaction to the Indian Express, Anuj Kumar, SHO, Surajpur police station said, “An FIR for violating the code of conduct was registered against Pankaj Singh since around six-seven cars reached within 100 metres of the centre, which is not permitted.”

On January 22, BJP released its second list of candidates for UP assembly polls including the name of Pankaj Singh to contest from Noida constituency. The rising son, with over 15 years of party work under his belt, is adamant about his party sweeping the UP elections. Singh has confidence on himself and considered him no less than Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi and UP Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav. However, soon after filing his nomination from Noida, Singh had made it clear that ‘his way’ of politics does not includes commenting bad about his rivals as when asked by the media to share his comments on the Opposition, he said “I don’t want to badmouth Akhilesh and Rahul as this is not my politics.”
