Alwar Bwot MP Mahwant Chandnath died in a Delhi hospital early on Sunday after an extended illness. He was 61 years old.
Chandnath began his political career in 2004 when he challenged Alwar’s parliamentary elections. He lost to Karan Singh Yadav of Congress by 8,400 votes.
Yadav was a member of the Behror Riding; his choice to Lok Sabha justified a bypoll in Behror. The BJP led Chandnath, who led the Nath sect of Hinduism, in the partial elections.
The religious leader defeated Jaswant Singh Yadav, a rebel BJP who fought as an independent, with 13,000 votes.
After the end of its assembly mandate in 2008, Chandnath disappeared from politics. He concentrated on the religious works of his mutt in Rohtak, Haryana.
He returned to politics in 2014 when the BJP directed him for the election of Alwar LS. The head of the Nath sect defeated MP incumbent and union minister Jitendra Singh with a wide margin of around 2,84,000 votes.
Chandnath was active in Alwar for six months after the elections, met with the people and held public hearings in all eight segments of the assembly. But for more than two years, he left again. People close to him said he had cancer and could not focus on political work.
Last year, people in the city of Alwar posted “missing” posters for their PM. Development work has been blocked; The deputies had no doubts about the sending of proposals for works under MPLAD (MP area area).
“He (Chandnath) fought aggressive thyroid cancer over the past two and a half years. He had undergone chemotherapy and radiation therapy and received immunotherapy,” said a doctor at Apollo Hospital in New Delhi.
“We have done a tracheotomy, he feeds through a tube in his stomach.” Yesterday, it was good during the day, but his condition deteriorated during the night and he suffered a cardiac arrest.He died at 12:40 ” “He said.
The doctor said Chandnath survived longer because he was “mentally tough.”
In recent months, the heir of the mahant religious, Balaknath, became active in politics and began to meet people on horseback in the Lower House to complete absence of the member.
“Sadly about the disappearance of LS MP Alwar, Mahant Chand Nath ji, will be remembered for his rich social work, my deepest condolences,” Prime Minister Narendra Modi said in a tweet.
Minister Vasundhara Raje and said that Mahant’s death was an irreparable loss for her and for the entire BJP family. He will remember his contribution to development work, he said.
