Miffed Congress workers in Bihar create ruckus at the party office in Patna over ticket denial

Congress and RJD had tussled for weeks before settling on a seat-sharing formula. Congress had to agree with only 9 seats while RJD got 20.

Disillusionment is looming large amongst the Congress workers in Bihar as they create a ruckus at the Congress party office in Patna on the denial of the Lok Sabha seat to the former MP Nikhil Kumar from the Aurangabad constituency. The Congress alliance in Bihar has chosen to field Hindustani Awam Morcha(Secular)’s Upendra Prasad as its candidate from the said constituency.

As can be seen in the video, Congress workers protesting against the denial of ticket to their former MP Nikhil Kumar are visibly miffed with the party’s decision of relinquishing the seat of Aurangabad to one of the partners of the grand alliance Hindustani Awam Morcha. Disgruntled party members raised their objections and registered their protest against the party’s decision at the Congress party office in Patna.

While on one hand, the BJP has been swift and astute in stitching alliance with the regional parties and smooth distribution of tickets with its alliance partners, the Congress has been ostensibly clumsy in forming alliances and distributing tickets among its alliance partners.

In Maharashtra, former Leader of Opposition Radhakrishna Patil’s son Sujay Vikhe Patil joined BJP because he was denied Ahmednagar Lok Sabha seat while being in the UPA alliance. Radhakrishna Patil also declared his displeasure over the Congress-NCP alliance and claimed that he won’t campaign for them. Even former CM Ashok Chavan was heard saying in a tape that he was frustrated with the Congress leadership and was contemplating of resigning.

It is notable here that Congress and RJD had tussled for weeks before deciding on seat sharing for the Lok Sabha elections. Finally, Congress had agreed to contest in 9 seats, giving RJD 20, RLSP 5, HAM 3 and VIP 3 seats.

Serious allegations of cash for constituency has also been accused by many Congress leaders. A few days back Ex-AICC secretary Sudhakar Reddy had resigned from Congress alleging that the party is selling Lok Sabha election tickets for crores of rupees.
