March 29,2019

The Congress on Friday replaced Tanushree Tripathi with Delhi-based journlaist Supriya Srinate as its Lok Sabha candidate

The Congress on Friday replaced jailed politician Amarmani Tripathi’s daughter Tanushree Tripathi with Delhi-based journlaist Supriya Srinate as its Lok Sabha candidate from Maharajganj in Uttar Pradesh.
The Congress faced a major embarrassment when Tanushree Tripathi’s name was announced both by the Congress and the Pragatisheel Samajwadi Party-Lohia led by Mulayam Singh Yadav’s brother Shivpal Singh Yadav.

Soon after the announcement, Shrinate tweeted: “I have stepped down as Executive Editor at ET NOW to pursue the next challenging phase of my life outside media.

I thank The Times group for the most exciting 10 years of my journalism. Wish the channel, management all my colleagues the very best.”
She added: “I will be taking an active plunge in politics, am grateful to the Congress, party President Rahul Gandhi, (General Secretary) Priyanka Gandhi, Jyotiraditya Scindia for trusting me with Maharajganj. It will be an honour to keep my late father’s legacy alive.”

Shrinate’s father, the late Harsh Vardhan, was two-time Congress MP from Maharajganj in Uttar Pradesh
