Bangla Hunt Desk: All the political parties are in the midst of preparations for the forthcoming Bihar assembly elections. Congress has also announced the names of all their candidates. And the name of one of the candidates is surprising everyone. That candidate is none other than Brajesh Pandey, the brother of NDTV anchor Ravish Kumar. Congress has given ticket to Brajesh Pandey for Motihari's Gobindaganj assembly seat.
Brother of Ravish Kumar & Congress leader Brajesh Panday along with friend (Nikhil) were accused of raping a Minor Dalit Girl.
Later, the dalit rape survivor was forced to marry Nikhil in order to settle the case.

The Congress candidate is accused of raping the minor daughter of a former Congress minister in the Bihar government. For this reason, he had to resign from the post of co-president of the Bihar Congress. Not only that, a case was filed against him under the POCSO Act because of this allegation.
Brajesh Kumar has also got a place in the list of candidates issued by the Congress. He has been nominated from Gobindaganj constituency. This seat will be elected in the second round. However, he had earlier contested from this seat. But at that time he could not win. He was co-president of the Bihar Congress in 2016 when he was accused of raping a minor daughter of a party leader. He had to resign after the case came to light.
Please pay attention to the candidate of serial no 9 assembly no 14 Govindganj. @INCIndiaLive Has chosen Anuj, a veteran journalist from a world-renowned country. Such rare and shameless confluences of politics and journalism are rare.ravishndtv pic.twitter.com/gRAuXoCIaT
