Here it can be mentioned that neither Gadkari nor Damania have contested any election so far. Contesting from Nagpur Parliamentary constituency would be their debut in electoral process.
Gadkari has been elected to the Maharashtra Legislative Council from the graduates constituency since 1989. Gadkari has already indicated that he is quite keen to contest from the Nagpur Lok Sabha seat which is currently represented by the Congress' Vilas Muttemwar. Gadkari has already initiated a slew of projects in Nagpur constituency and has also launched the voters' contact programme.
