Ravi Kishan Gorakhpur Election Result 2019: Ravi Kishan wins by more than 200,000 votes

Ravi Kishan, the Bhojpuri actor and the BJP candidate

All eyes are set on the Gorakhpur constituency as the BJP is fielding Ravi Kishan, a Bollywood celebrity against the sitting MP of the SP who won during the bye elections. The key contest in Gorakhpur Lok Sabha constituency in 2019 Lok Sabha elections is among Ravi Kishan of the BJP (also called as Ravindra Shyamnarayan Shukla), Madhusudan Tripathi of the Congress, and Rambhual Nishad of the Samajwadi Party (SP). In 2009, BJP’s Adityanath won from this constituency having defeated the BSP candidate Rajmati Nishad.

Ravi Kishan is a popular Bhojpuri actor and a well-known Bollywood celebrity. He contested in 2014 Lok Sabha elections from Jaunpur on a Congress ticket. He joined the BJP in 2017.

Gorakhpur is one of the key constituencies for the BJP and Adityanath was elected for five times from here since 1999. He resigned his MP position in order to take charge as the Chief Minister of the state. During the bye elections, SP’s Praveen Kumar Nishad won this seat and became the MP. Due to this shocking defeat, the BJP was cautious of choosing the best candidate to contest from the seat. As per the observers, Ravi Kishan might prove to be the best choice for the party.
