Ex-AICC secretary resigns from Congress, alleges party is selling Lok Sabha election tickets for crores or Rupees

Unfortunately the traditions and values followed by Congress party have changed contrary to the principles of the party, Congress leader Dr P. Sudhakar Reddy said

The Congress party leader and former AICC secretary Dr P. Sudhakar Reddy has tendered his resignation from the party, alleging that Congress is seeking crores of Rupees in lieu of tickets for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections.

In a letter to the Congress President, he expressed his anguish over the changing nature of the Congress party. “Unfortunately the traditions and values followed by Congress party have changed contrary to the principles of the party. Money had taken precedence in the Telangana Assembly elections in 2018, MLC elections and now in the Lok Sabha elections,” Reddy lamented.

He also expressed shock over crores of Rupees being solicited in exchange of the tickets to poll the elections. Reddy said that such flagrant commercialisation of poll tickets has forced him to think about resigning from the party. He also added that he had attempted to bring the same to the notice of the party leadership but didn’t receive any favourable response on it.

“I tried my best to convey the ground situation to the high-command but it is not receptive due to interference from middlemen,” Reddy wrote in the letter. He also added that the party has earned a bad reputation on the issues of terrorism and national security. The resignation further said that since the party has failed to grasp the sentiments of the countrymen, Reddy felt it improper to work with irresponsible people and middlemen in the Congress party.

It appears that ticket selling has become a norm in the Congress party with rampant cash for tickets going on unabated. A few months back, Congress was marred with a massive cash for tickets scandal in Rajasthan. In Telangana too, senior Congress leaders had accused the party of selling tickets for the Assembly elections polls. The resentment among upright Congress workers is growing as more news of ticket selling by the Congress party is emerging and the party high-command’s acquiescence to the malpractice.
