Patna: Former Bihar minister and Aam Admi Party leader Parveen Amnullah today filed nomination for Patna Sahib Lok Sabha seat amid protests by a section of party workers.
Accompanied by senior AAP leader Manish Sisodia, Amanullah filed her nomination after a roadshow on way to Patna Collectorate.
She will take on actor-politician Shatrughan Sinha of BJP, Bhojpuri film actor Kunal Singh of Congress and noted doctor Gopal Prasad Sinha of JD(U) in the poll slated for April 17.
Amanullah's journey for filing the nomination was marred by protest by a section of AAP workers who were agitating against her nomination.
Protestors squat on the road and raised slogans to vent their anger on giving ticket to Amanullah in front of Arvind Kejriwal's close lieutanant Manish Sisodia. Sisodia played down the protest and told reporters that these are normal in politics.
