    God Save the residents of chamraja Assembly constituency. If being instrumental in facelift of UOM and KSOU means former is ruined and latter is derecognised, then surely it deserves a Medal of its own category. So I wonder which of the two fates should await Chamraja constituency if he is elected leader ?.
