Agar: Commotion gripped the Madhya Pradesh Congress ahead of Assembly Elections when a party leader allegedly committed suicide after being denied a ticket to contest polls on November 25.

According to reports, leader from Agar, Narsingh Malviya, consumed poison and was taken to a hospital in Ujjain.

The district Panchayat member was later declared dead.
Malviya, who has been associated with Congress for quite a long time, hoped to contest polls from Agar. However, the party gave ticket to another candidate, Madhu Gehlot, dashing Malviya`s hopes.

The Congress released its second list containing names of 82 candidates last night

Meanwhile, Madhya Pradesh Congress vice-president Manak Agrawal stepped down to protest party ticket to former Union minister Suresh Pachouri, whom he accused of corruption.

Pachauri will contest from Bhojpur constituency and face BJP`s sitting MLA Surendra Patwa.

Chief Electoral Office sources said that a total of 414 nominations have been filed so far for the Madhya Pradesh Assembly Elections.
