Sushma Swaraj to not contest 2019 Lok Sabha elections

Sushma Swaraj said that the state, as well as central government, are working very well. Over 33 crore  Jandhan accounts are opened during this period.

Indore | Union Minister Sushma Swaraj on Tuesday announced that she will not contest the next election due to health reasons. Sushma Swaraj announced this in a press conference held in Indore. In a discussion with the media, Sushma Swaraj, on one hand, complimented Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chief Minister of the state Shivraj Singh, while at the same time she termed the Congress’s manifesto as false.

Addressing the reporters she said, “It is the party which decides, but I have made up my mind not to contest next elections.”

Sushma Swaraj said that the state, as well as central government, are working very well. Over 33 crore  Jandhan accounts are opened during this period. “There is no alternative in front of us in the opposition. There is no leader of the coalition,” said Swaraj.

Sushma Swaraj said that many things have been discussed in the Congress pledge. Farmer’s debt waiver, half power bill, half-expenses for girls’ marriage etc. She said that it seems that the Congress leadership is convinced that the Congress will not be in the government.

Swaraj is a 7 time Member of Parliament and 3 time Member of Legislative Assembly who even served as the 5th Chief Minister of Delhi from 13 October 1998 to 3 December 1998. Currently she is a member of Parliament from the Vidhisha constituency in Madhya Pradesh and Union Minister of External Affairs.
