Since 2009, BJP veteran Brij Bhushan Singh has won all the Lok Sabha elections in Kaiserganj (Uttar Pradesh) constituency. But, due to the alleged sexual harassment cases filed by women wrestlers, the BJP dropped Brij Bhushan Singh and named his youngest son Karan for the seat.

Karan Bhushan Singh won by a significant vote margin of 1,48,843 votes against Bhagat Ram of the Samajwadi Party in the Kaiserganj Lok Sabha seat.

Karan, a political greenhorn, having secured 5,71,263 votes in total, has maintained his father’s legacy by retaining the constituency stronghold. His nearest rival, SP's Bhagat Ram, managed to secure only 4,22,420 votes in comparison, as per ECI data.

Karan is part of BJP strategy to maintain dominant Jat community equation in its favour.

1990-born Karan is the youngest son of Brij Bhushan Singh. He holds a law degree besides doing a business management course in Australia and is also a national-level double-trap shooter.

Karan (34), earlier this year in February, succeeded his father to become president of the Uttar Pradesh Wrestling Association.

In late May, a vehicle from the cavalcade of Karan Bhushan Singh knocked two people, both cousin brothers, to death near Chataipur village in Kaiserganj Lok Sabha constituency in Gonda district.

In 2019, Karan's father Brij Bhushan Singh won by 2,61,601 vote margin against Chandradev Ram Yadav of BSP in the Kaiserganj Lok Sabha seat.
