As Arjun Singh's daughter Veena Singh takes her first unaided steps in the world of electoral politics, it only looks like things would take a nasty turn with her father and brother campaigning against her.

Veena decided to take the solo route after the Congress denied her a ticket to contest the Lok Sabha elections from either Satna or Sidhi Lok Sabha constituency.

She later filed her nomination for Sidhi as an independent. Her brother and Congress MLA Ajay Singh criticised her decision, saying it was not right on her part to go it alone.

Ajay, who is campaigning for the Congress nominee Indrajeet Patel in Sidhi, said that the fight here was mainly between a number of Congressmen.

Even Arjun Singh has made it clear that he would support only the official Congress candidate. Apart from Patel, some other candidates in the constituency too have Congress background.
