Delhi Congress releases second list of candidates

Congress spokesperson Manish Tewari said that EVMs can be tampered with is something which has been demonstrated over and over again by different stakeholders

According to news agency ANI, Walia has alleged that the party was selling tickets for upcoming MCD elections slated to be held on April 22. "I felt neglected. Moreover, I am impressed with functioning and policies of the PM", he said at a press conference on Monday at state BJP's headquarters on Pandit Pant Marg.

"I have written a letter to Delhi Congress President Ajay Maken, complaining against irregularities and violation of party rules in ticket distribution and if things do not change, I will quit the party", Walia said.

Former Member Legislative Assembly (MLA) of Congress from Delhi Amrish Singh Gautam said on Monday he quit the Congress to save his self-respect.

Lamenting over the allegations made by Walia, Upadhyay further said that the former is one of the stalwarts of the party, adding that the allegations must be serious which made him to quit the party.

While AICC spokesperson Manish Tewari refused to comment on matters related to civic polls, senior Delhi Congress leader and former Delhi assembly Speaker Subhash Chopra admitted to "some resentment", but said "true Congressmen will not desert the party".

Delhi Congress spokespe-rson Sharmistha Mukherjee said that though only 136 seats have been reserved for women, the DPCC has also fielded women from general wards by giving eight more seats, to take the number of women candidates in the fray for the MCD elections to 144.

Walia was Minister of Health the earlier Congress-led government headed by Sheila Dikshit. "The party leadership needs to address all these issues".

Walia was MLA from Laxmi Nagar in eastern Delhi for four consecutive terms.

Walia's outburst is the first public show of unrest brewing within Congress.

Yusuf said: "I will also raise my concerns with the party high command". Even as the deadline inches closer, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the Congress are yet to release the complete list of contestants.
