India Elections : Govinda not to contest Election

Congress MP and Bollywood actor Govinda is not seeking a ticket from Mumbai North constituency for the upcoming Lok Sabha polls. The BJP has fielded former union minister Ram Naik from the same constituency.

Bollywood actor-MP Govinda will not stand for re-election from Mumbai North constituency, Maharashtra Chief Minister Ashok Chavan said here on Sunday.

He has expressed his inability to contest the election. He was made an offer by the party, as with all other sitting members of parliament, Chavan said.

The actor-MP from North Mumbai, who had defeated the BJP heavyweight Naik in 2004, will instead campaign for the Congress party.
