Union minister Santosh Kumar Gangwar has represented Uttar Pradesh’s Bareilly in the Lok Sabha from 1989, except in one term.

The seven-time MP Santosh Kumar Gangwar could not win the Lok Sabha election in 2009, when he lost to Congress leader Pravin Singh Aron by a narrow margin.

Gangwar will face Aron once again in the Lok Sabha election 2019. The Samajwadi Party’s Bhagwat Sharan Gangwar is also in the fray as an alliance candidate.

Uttar Pradesh, which sends the maximum number of members to Parliament at 80, will go to polls in all the seven phases of the Lok Sabha election 2019. Votes will be counted on May 23.
