 This year Pratapgarh saw a royal battle between the sitting MP Akshey Kumar Singh, cousin of Raja Bhaiyya, and Rajkumari Ratna Singh, a battle which has seen Ratna Singh emerge victoriousDaughter of former foreign minister and Raja of Kalakankar Dinesh Singh, Ratna Singh had earlier contested and won in the 13th Lok Sabha elections. One of the reasons for this victory is that due to delimitation, the two Assembly constituencies where Raja Bhaiyya exerted considerable political clout – Behar and Kunda – have merged with the nearby Kaushambhi parliamentary seat. The other is that the presence of the notorious gangster Ateeq Ahmed has polarised the voter on communal lines.
