Many outgoing BJP MPs may not get tickets to upcoming state election – The New Indian Express
DEHRADUN: After a Uttarakhand MPs ballot was submitted to BJP National President JP Nadda, many suspect that at least a dozen MPs will not get tickets for the upcoming Assembly elections. the state.
Nadda was on a two-day visit to the state, conducting 8 consecutive meetings and assessing the situation on the ground.
“The party leadership checks the work, profile and everything they have done of each MP. Those facing power oppositions may not get tickets for the upcoming parliamentary elections in March 2022,” said a party source.
At present, the total membership of the 70-member House is 68 and two seats remain vacant. The BJP has 56 MPs while the Indian National Congress has 10 members. Two members are independent.
Meanwhile, the BJP’s Uttarakhand unit hired a private agency to conduct a “confidential investigation” to obtain a field report on the 70 constituencies in the state assembly.
The results of this survey will be used to determine ticket distribution for the upcoming State Assembly elections in March 2022.
The first phase of the investigation is already underway. The second phase will start on September 15th while the third phase will start on October 25th.
This will help the party get a field report from the 70 state assembly constituencies and decide on ticket distribution accordingly, a top state unity party leader said.
The party has also received reports of many MPs who spend most of the time in Dehradun, Delhi and other cities instead of their constituencies, which is fueling anti-nomination sentiments among hill-dwellers in Uttarakhand. .
