Congress has been fighting internal rift in most states for quite some time. From Karnataka, where their alliance is barely hanging on by a thread, to an internal rift in Madhya Pradesh after they won the election, Congress has had a tough time keeping its own house in order. Now, a video has emerged where two groups of Congress workers are seen bashing each other up, reportedly, over Lok Sabha Election tickets.

The fight between the two Congress factions reportedly broke out in the Jalore area of Rajasthan. In front of the AICC secretary, in a meeting organised for the Lok Sabha election, the two groups were seen getting into a fist fight. Reportedly, the fight broke out while Congress leader Vivek Bansal was taking ‘feedback’ from the workers about the Lok Sabha elections.
The fight broke out between the Om Singh Chandrai and Samarjeet Singh.
While Rajasthan Congress was beating each other up, Ashok Gehlot, the Congress Chief Minister of Rajasthan talked tall and claimed that Congress would defeat Narendra Modi in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections and that the party’s preparation to contest the maker-or-break elections were on track. He spoke about the ficticious Rafale scam, demonetisation, GST etc. He also said that 2019 is a fight for “ideology”.
This is not the first time that Congress factions have gotten into physical fights over ticktet distribution. Recently, two Congress MLAs from Karnataka got into a fight at Eagleton resort where they were staying where one ended up with head injuries that landed him in the hospital. Before the Rajasthan Assembly Elections, Congress workers had surrounded Sachin Pilot’s car and had protested violently against the ticket distribution as well.
