Kalawati replaced by another farm widow

 
“Since Kalawati is not well and under tremendous pressure from many quarters for withdrawing from contest for the October 13 Assembly elections from Wani, Samiti has decided to replace her with Babytai,” Vidarbha Janandolan Samiti President Kishore Tiwari said.

“Kalawati will decide her own fate. She may contest if she can withstand pressure, but as far as Samiti is concerned its nominee to represent the farm widows is Babytai whose husband Chhatar Singh Bais ended his life in year 2007,” he said.

Kalawati, who shot into limelight after Congress general secretary Rahul Gandhi mentioned her plight in Parliament, was on Friday hospitalised.

She, however, drove in an ambulance to the Wani office of Assistant Returning Officer accompanied by Tiwari to file her papers on Friday.
