Patna, Sept.26 : Union Communication and Information Technology Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad on Saturday downplayed the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader and former home secretary R.K. Singh’s recent allegation on ticket distribution in his party, saying that the tickets were given after proper discussions.
“Tickets are distributed after proper discussion in our party, taking feedback from the candidates,” Prasad told media here.
R.K. Singh had criticised his party for denying tickets to rightful candidates ahead of the upcoming state assembly polls.
“Popular sitting MLAs are denied tickets and criminals are being given tickets. No wonder party workers are enraged in Bihar. What is the difference between you (BJP) and Lalu Yadav if you give tickets to criminals?” Singh had told ANI.
The former home secretary also accused his party of allegedly accepting money over the distribution of the tickets in the upcoming polls. (ANI)
