Harsh Vardhan, ex-union minister, steps away from politics as BJP unveils Lok Sabha election roster.

Harsh Vardhan, a former union minister and two-time MP, has revealed his intention to leave politics and resume his medical career. This decision comes after he was not included in the BJP’s selection of 195 candidates for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections.

Harsh Vardhan, who previously served as the health minister in Narendra Modi’s government before being replaced by Mansukh Mandaviya during the Covid crisis, expressed his emotions in a message shared on social media.

He mentioned his thirty-year electoral career, winning all five assembly and two parliamentary elections with significant margins and holding various prestigious positions in the party and government.

Harsh Vardhan reflected on his accomplishments, including working towards a polio-free India and overseeing the health of millions during the Covid-19 pandemic’s initial phases.

He wrote, “I had the rare opportunity bestowed upon me to be able to first work towards creating a polio-free Bharat and then to take care of the health of millions of our countrymen grappling with the dreaded COVID-19 during its first and second phases.”

The BJP has chosen Praveen Khandelwal as its candidate for the Chandni Chowk Lok Sabha seat, replacing Harsh Vardhan.
