Body elections: Congress will adopt old formula again in ticket distribution, MLAs will get ‘free hand’
Jaipur. As soon as the announcement of elections for 90 urban bodies of 20 districts of the state, the Congress (Congress) has started fighting for tickets. With the announcement of elections, local leaders willing to contest elections have started lobbying with big leaders. Like last time, this time too, party MLAs are expected to run more in ticket distribution. To keep the legislators happy in the current political situation, it is considered certain to adopt the formula of giving preference to their opinion in the ticket of the body.
Recently, in the elections of 6 municipal corporations, 50 bodies and 20 districts, in the Zilla Parishad and Panchayat Samiti elections, tickets were also distributed by MLAs and MLA candidates. This led to good results in the bodies. Therefore, this time it is believed that MLAs are getting ‘free hand’ in ticket distribution.

The Congress is preparing to deploy observers to count the opinions of the claimants in the civic elections in a day or two.
