 After L.K. Advani, another BJP veteran Jaswant Singh was Thursday reportedly seeking a Lok Sabha constituency of his choice.

Jaswant Singh, 75, wants to contest from Barmer in Rajasthan.

Though he has never represented the constituency in the Lok Sabha, sources Thursday said the former union minister has told the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) that he wants to contest what is likely to be his last election from this constituency.

He has earlier won Lok Sabha elections from Chittorgarh in Rajasthan in 1991 and 1996, and from Darjeeling in West Bengal in 2009.

However, when asked about Jaswant Singh's reported demand, BJP spokesperson Nirmala Sitharaman said: "Don't go looking for stories."
