Neemuch (Madhya Pradesh): Denied BJP ticket, a couple who contested as independent candidates from ward no 3 and 25 have emerged victorious in their respective wards under the Jawad assembly area in the elections to the local bodies.

Sugna Bai Ahir, former janpad president had sought a ticket to contest as a BJP candidate for the post of district panchayat member from Ward no 3, while her husband Puran Ahir sought a ticket for janpad panchayat member from ward no 25, but they were denied the tickets due to resentment of local MLA and cabinet minister Omprakash Saklecha. Hence, the couple decided to contest as independent candidates from their respective wards.

This region is the last panchayat area of Madhya Pradesh, which is bordered by Rajasthan. Late Virendra Kumar Saklecha, belonging to the region has served as Chief Minister and his son Omprakash Saklecha is also an MLA and cabinet minister of the state.
