Syed Zafar Islam BJP Candidate For UP Rajya Sabha Bypoll

NEW DELHI, AUGUST  27—The BJP has nominated party spokesperson Syed Zafar Islam for the upcoming Rajya Sabha bypoll in Uttar Pradesh, necessitated by sitting member Amar Singh’s death.

A party statement issued by party leader Arun Singh said that the Central Election Committee has given its nod for Islam’s name.

The low-profile Islam is a former banker and is believed to have played a key role in bringing Jyotiraditya Scindia to the saffron fold. This move can also address criticism that the BJP hasn’t given chance to any new Muslim leaders.

The Election Commission has already issued notification for the bypoll from Uttar Pradesh and with its comfortable majority in the Assembly, the BJP seems set to win.
