Irate Congress workers ransack Delhi office over poll tickets

IANS | New Delhi |

Unhappy over ticket distribution for civic polls in Delhi, some angry Congress party workers on Tuesday protested at the Delhi Congress office and even ransacked the ground floor of the building.

According to party sources, the protestors were angry over denial of the party's poll ticket to their leader Baljit Sinsinwar, an applicant from Kamla Nagar ward in North Delhi.

"Some workers came and ransacked the ground floor and posters were torn. They were angry over ticket distribution. It was a small issue, not a big one," said one party leader.

Dissension in the Delhi Congress is becoming apparent, especially after former Delhi legislator Amrish Gautam on Monday quit the Congress to join the BJP and former Congress Minister A.K. Walia reportedly threatened to quit over distribution of party tickets for the civic polls.

Former Delhi Congress chief Arvinder Singh Lovely and former Minister Haroon Yusuf also expressed concern over the functioning of the Delhi Congress headed by former Union Minister Ajay Maken.
