Winnability, not age, is criteria for ticket: Randhawa
Jaipur: The Congress will give tickets to “winnable” candidates in Rajasthan and there will be no age bar or “recommendation system”, the party’s state in charge Sukhjinder Singh Randhawa said on Wednesday.
“We will give tickets to winnable candidates. If someone is elderly in our home, do we throw them out saying that they have grown old so move out,” he told reporters here, while replying to queries.
The Congress leader also said the party is not afraid of action by the ED. The agency had on Monday carried out searches at several places in the state in connection with a money laundering probe in the paper leak case. On Wednesday, state ministers Mamta Bhupesh, Saleh Mohammad, Govind Meghwal and Murari Lal Meena were among those who met Randhawa in the initial round of interactions. Later, MLA Krishna Poonia and other legislators also met him.
Randhawa took feedback about the issues related to government and party organisation, party sources said.
The meetings came amid attempts by the party’s central leadership to broker peace between Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot and dissident leader Sachin Pilot ahead of assembly polls due later this year.
