New Delhi: Former Haryana Congress Chief Ashok Tanwar on Wednesday protested outside the Congress headquarters in New Delhi against the unfairness of the ticket distribution for Sohna assembly seat.
Tanwar was quoted by news agency ANI as saying, “The ticket for Sohna assembly seat was sold for Rs 5 Crores. We will fix the situation. If ticket distribution has been unfair then how those who have been chosen will win?”
Miffed at the ticket distribution in Haryana, the former state chief added that those who are working in the party for the last five years are ignored, but those who have worked against the party are considered by former Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda. He lashed out at the Congress party by claiming that the leadership in Haryana has been destroyed.
“I was in ticket distribution process so I know, ‘yeh sarkar banvayi gayi thi, bani nahi thi’. 14 people who are BJP MLAs today were sent away from here, seven of their MPs have Congress background,” said Tanwar as per news agency ANI and added, “BJP offered me to join six times in three months, I didn’t go and never will.”
Meanwhile, sources said that the party is even considering giving tickets to turncoats. As many as 10 leaders from different parties have been offered tickets by the Hooda camp to sway Tanwar”s supporters, said a leader.
