KANPUR: For the first time in the history of the Kanpur Municipal Corporation, a eunuch will sit alongside 109 corporators and represent his ward.

Kajal Kiran alias Lalman was elected as corporator from ward number 48 of Pashupati Nagar area of the city. Kiran defeated the Bharatiya Janata Party nominee Shailendra by a margin of 4,000 votes.

Kiran told mediapersons: "The residents did not have faith in political parties. The parties made tall claims but did not serve them. Therefore, residents have reposed faith in me and elected me."
