Disputes, if any, subject to jurisdiction in New Delhi

Internal infighting has broken out in the Haryana Congress, affecting no less than the interim president of the party, Sonia Gandhi. Former Haryana Congress chief Ashok Tanwar today paid a visit to the Congress headquarters in New Delhi at 3 PM. He accused the sale of Haryana’s Sohna Assembly seat for Rs 5 crore.

Tanwar is upset with the ticket distribution in the state. He said, “Those who worked for the party in the last five years were ignored during ticket distribution. former Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda has given importance to those who worked against the party.”

The former Haryana Pradesh Congress president sat on a dharna with his supporters in front of the party headquarters in Delhi on Wednesday. He accused the party leaders of rigging the ticket distribution.

Tanwar said that the ticket for Sohna assembly seat had been sold for Rs 5 crore. He said that he would handle the situation under any circumstances. “If the ticket has been rigged, how will the elected people win?” he said to reporters.

Tanwar said that in the last five years in the state, “I have cultivated the party with my blood and sweat. There is now no leadership in Rajasthan. We have always been dedicated to our party. Why are tickets being given to such people who used to criticise the Congress earlier and have now joined the Congress?”

Tanwar said, “I was involved in the ticket distribution process; so I know that this government (BJP government) was fabricated, not formed. Fourteen MLAs of the BJP wer actually sent from the Congress.”

The rebellious leader said that seven MPs of the present government had a Congress background. Tanwar said, “BJP offered me to join them six times in 3 months, but I did not go and will never leave.”

After the replacement of the state party president, infighting in Haryana Congress has increased. Current state president Kumari Selja and former Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda are believed to have favoured leaders of their camps in the nomination process. Tanwar is making every effort to lobby with the central leadership of the Congress to push his candidates.
