‘Congress tickets given under direction from Lalu, Nitish’
NORA CHOPRA  26th Sep 2015

Nikhil Kumar, the head of the Congress' selection committee for Bihar candidates, was not consulted before the final list was declared on Wednesday. Apparently, he was not informed who the Congress candidate would be from his home turf Aurangabad. Even Meira Kumar could not get any tickets for her supporters. In Kishanganj Assembly seat, a rival of Maulana Asrarul Haq, the lone Congress MP from Bihar, got a ticket. The Assembly seat is part of Haq's Kishanganj Lok Sabha seat. Shakeel Ahmad is the only Delhi politician who got two seats for his supporters, Bhawana Jha from Benipatti and Amit Kumar Tunna from Riga. Tunna, incidentally, belongs to Jharkhand. An angry Kumar has written to Sonia Gandhi accusing Bihar PCC chief Ashok Choudhary and AICC general secretary in charge of Bihar, C.P. Joshi of taking directions from Lalu Yadav and Nitish Kumar while deciding on tickets. Senior Congress leaders from Bihar are camping in New Delhi protesting the party's decision.
