Having won prizes for her debating skills during her student days in Ambala and Chandigarh, Sushma Swaraj is a forceful speaker and eloquent about everything.Ms. Swaraj stood from Vidisha, usually considered a safe bet for the BJP, with former prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee, who had stood from Vidisha in 1991, emerging victorious. Ms. Swaraj’s victory was an expected one, as she stood virtually unchallenged in Vidisha, where the Congress candidate Rajkumar Patel’s nomination had been rejected. A three time member of the Rajya Sabha, she has been associated with many social and cultural bodies in various capacities.
