New Delhi: Udit Raj, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP from North West Delhi constituency on Tuesday threatened to quit the party if he is denied a ticket to contest the Lok Sabha elections 2019. “I am waiting for the ticket. If not given to me, I will do goodbye to party,” he tweeted this morning.
Notably, the ruling party has announced candidates for all other seats in the Capital but is yet to deliver its candidate for the North West Delhi seat. “I still hopeful that I will file nomination from my constituency and BJP where I have worked hard and proved my metal. I hope I will not be forced to leave BJP by BJP itself,” the BJP MP asserted.
Raj had also alleged that he had tried to talk to BJP chief Amit Shah and Prime Minister Narendra Modi about his ticket but did not get any response. He claimed that Senior party leaders, including Nitin Gadkari and Rajnath, Singh had asked him to wait.
Earlier on Monday, Raj and dozens of his supporters had created a ruckus outside Delhi BJP office on Pant Marg. Punjabi singer Hans Raj Hans, who is likely to be announced as the BJP candidate from the North West Delhi seat, was present at the office along with other party leaders.
