The BJP too is facing difficulties in Chhattisgarh where it is to face polls in November.
Rakesh Pandey, who is brother to senior BJP parliamentarian Saroj Pandey, is said to have visited the party headquarters to register protest for ticket allocation to someone else.
It is said that Rakesh Pandey was accompanied by his sister and BJP stalwart Saroj Pandey as well when the two visited Ekatma Parisar, the state level party headquarters of the BJP.
The two are said to have met BJP leader Saudan Singh on the issue.
Rakesh Pandey is said to be eyeing BJP ticket from Vaishali Nagar which for now has been allocated to Vidya Ratan Bhasin.
Pandey had staked the claim from the party but he was for some reason sidelined.
Rakesh Pandey in his earlier interaction with the media too termed the ticket allocation as opposed to the vision of Amit Shah, the BJP chief, and also described it as conspiracy against Dr Raman Singh.>
