No to nepotism: BJP says won’t give ticket to family members of MPs, MLAs in Haryana elections

The BJP will not give tickets to party leaders who are above 75 years of age either. Sitting Mayors and Zilla Parishad chiefs are also not to be considered for MLA tickets.

Ahead of the Haryana assembly elections, BJP has made a major announcement. State BJP chief Subhash Barala stated recently that in accordance to the decision taken by the party’s central committee, no family members of sitting MPs, MLAs and ministers will be given tickets for the upcoming assembly elections.

Barala stated that even the sitting mayors and Zilla Parishad chairman will not be considered for an MLA ticket in the upcoming elections. The party has stated that it will not cultivate nepotism and favouritism in the party and only deserving candidates will be considered.

Subhash Barala mentioned that the Amit Shah led central election committee of the BJP had decided to be strict about these rules while distributing tickets and the state unit will follow it. In the state BJP meeting on Sunday night, the decision was conveyed to party leaders. Many state ministers and senior leaders hoping for tickets for their children are expected to be disappointed.

The BJP will also not give tickets to party leaders who are above 75 years of age. While the final decision regarding the selection of candidates is to be taken after PM Modi returns from his USA tour, the state unit has stated that the names of the prospective candidates and selection panel names have been sent to the party’s central committee.

The Haryana assembly elections are scheduled to be held in a single phase on November 2 for all 70 seats. The last date for filing nominations is October 4.
