NEW DELHI FEB 13: Several youth leaders, in the spotlight in the last couple of years, are speculated to be making their electoral debuts in the Lok Sabha polls in 2019 & also to campaign in 2019 elections together to defeat BJP.
After rumours that former Jawaharlal Nehru University Students’ Union (JNUSU) leader Kanhaiya Kumar will contest the Begusarai Lok Sabha seat in Bihar on a Communist Party of India (CPI) ticket, Patidar leader Hardik Patel will contest from Gujarat and Salman Nizami who targeted PM Modi in last assembly elections may also contest the elections from Maharastra & will campaign across the country.
