Muslims demand tickets from BJP in upcoming Gujarat election
With Gujarat election round the corner, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Minority Morcha is demanding tickets this time from BJP even as the party has had poor record in giving tickets to Muslims in the elections.
BJP Minority Morcha in-charge Mehboob Ali Chisti pointed that at least there are around 350 Muslims who secured seats for BJP in local body polls in urban areas in 2015.
He said that Muslims could win assembly polls for BJP in certain constituencies.
“During the recent Parliamentary Board meeting, many Muslim community leaders have requested for party ticket. Representations have been made for Jamalpur-Khadia, Vejalpur, Vagra, Wankaner, Bhuj and Abdasa seats,” Chishti said.>
