Maharashtra: Congress MLA Abdul Sattar takes away 300 chairs after party denies him ticket

Taking away chairs as a means to arm-twist the party to give Lok Sabha ticket seems to be the newest trick being employed by disgruntled party workers.

Sillod MLA and Congress leader Abdul Sattar, on being denied a ticket for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections, has taken 300 chairs from the party office with him. Sattar, who quit the party for not being given a ticket, took away the chairs from the local party office claiming they ‘belonged to him’.

As per reports, the local Congress unit had called for a joint meeting with its ally, NCP at party office ‘Gandhi Bhawan’. However, ahead of this meeting, Sattar, along with his supporters removed about 300 chairs. Following this, the meeting was held at the NCP office.

Sattar was miffed at being denied the Lok Sabha ticket for Aurangabad constituency. Nomination of MLC Subhash Zhambad by Congress added fuel to the fire which triggered Sattar to take away the chairs. As per reports, Sattar has claimed that the chairs were his and he was providing them to Congress for the meetings. Now that he has left the party, he took the chairs with him. He added that those who have secured the candidature should make arrangements for the chairs.

Meanwhile, Zhambad, while downplaying the incident, gave Sattar the benefit of doubt. He justified Sattar taking away chairs from party office by saying that perhaps he was in need of those chairs.

Interestingly, a day before he got the chairs removed from party office, he had claimed that Congress had promised him a Lok Sabha ticket from either Aurangabad or Jalna. He had said that the state party chief Ashok Chavan was in touch with him following his resignation and will offer him either of the two seats.
