Actress Nagma, despite putting best efforts, has lost her first election. She contested from Meerut constituency from Uttar Pradesh.
The early reports indicate that Nagma has come distant third. Rajendra Agarwal from BJP has won the battle by defeating Mohammed Shahid Akhlaq from Bahujan Samajvadi Party.
The Tamil actress, who has been associated with the Congress for close to a decade, finally got an opportunity to contest her first election this time as many senior leaders were refusing to contest from Meerut constituency.
The constituency was represented by non-Congress parties in the last two decades. Even then, Nagma took up the challenge and threw her hat into the ring.
Nagma started off the campaign confidently but she was in shock when she was molested by her own men. Congress MLA Gajraj Sharma misbehaved with her in public as he kissed her when she entered Haput for a rally.
This irked her and she was forced to leave the venue. The Congress team downplayed the issue and the issue was resolved soon. But in a matter of 10 days, she faced a similar issue. This time, Nagma was groped by her party worker in public.
The two shameful incidents took a toll on her confidence and in the later days, she looked very dull. In the slideshow, see other popular celebrities from South, who contested in the elections.
