Patna: Rebel BJP leader Ranvir Nandan withdrew his candidature from Bankipur assembly seat in
favour of the official candidate Nitin Navin, according to the
state unit leader Sanjay Mayukh.

Nandan decided to withdraw his candidature at the
behest of Leader of the Opposition in Rajya Sabha Arun Jaitly
and BJP national general secretary Dharmendra Pradhan, he said
in a release.

It may be mentioned that Nandan had made an abortive
bid to contest the assembly polls from Bankipur seat after the
party decided to nominate Navin from the constituency, earlier
known as Patna (West) before delimitation.
