Lucknow: In what could be a major upset for the Congress, Louise Khurshid, wife of union Law Minister Salman Khurshid, was trailing in the sixth position in Uttar Pradesh's Farrukhabad assembly seat.

As votes were counted for the staggered elections, the high profile Louise Khurshid, a legislator in the outgoing assembly, was behind Urmila Rajput of the Samajwadi Party, Mohammed Umar Khan of the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP), Vijay Singh, an independent, Major Sunil Dutt Dwivedi of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Mohan Agarwal of the Jan Kranti Party (Rashtrawadi Party).

At 10.30 am, Louise Khurshid had managed 2,826 votes, far behind the SP's Urmila Rajput at 7,359 votes.

Her defeat would be a major blow for the Congress. It was in Farrukhabad that Salman Khurshid had thrown a gauntlet at the Election Commission of India, saying that he would ensure 18 percent sub-quota for Muslims.

she is a big liability and drag for inc. if congress wants to do better, she should be kicked out of congress politics. inc has to come out with better candidates. it will be better, if congress distances itself from half conscious women.
