NEW DELHI: Jaya Bachchan has, in a surprise move, turned down her nomination for the Rajya Sabha by Samajwadi Party, which announced the candidature of its national spokesman Mohan Singh for the seat.
Party sources said today that Bachchan has refused to contest the Rajya Sabha election citing "family reasons".
The party leadership was surprised at her decision as she was renominated after being consulted, they said.
