He told, “I had left the job, and the party refused to give the ticket and made fun of me by saying that I would not get a single vote. I made up my mind to contest elections as an independent to give a message to those people. For the first time, I contested the assembly elections from Fatehpur Sikri for the first time in 1985 and stood third. Since then I contest every election knowing that I will lose the election. I have contested 93 elections so far.
