Indian Eunuch Madhu Kinnar wins Raigarh mayoral election

India mayorMadhu Naresh Kinnar, a 35-year-old Independent candidate, is handed the certificate showing she received 33,168 votes wining the election be 4,537 votes.

Madhu Naresh told the Calcutta Telegraph “I’m a kinnar(eunuch). People voted for me as they believe I will address development issues,” said Madhu, who gave up singing in trains in October after the local eunuch community decided to contest the November civic polls and chose her to represent it.

Madhu, who wears saris, and belongs to the Dalit community said she had spent between Rs 60,000 and Rs 70,000 on her campaign, the entire sum having been raised by the eunuch community.

She can expect to be luckier than India’s first two eunuch mayors, both of whom were unseated by courts for contesting posts reserved for women. Raigarh’s mayoral post is not reserved.
