Baba Bipin Bihari reaches BJP office to demand ticket to contest from Sagar

It’s not only the leaders or active party workers but even saints are also queuing up before BJP office to stake their claim for Assembly ticket. On Thursday, Baba Bipin Bihari from Sagar reached BJP office along with supporters to demand ticket to contest election. However, at that time, no senior BJP leader was present in the office with whom he could talk regarding his aspirations.

But with this, it has become clear that even saints are also in line to get ticket from BJP. They think that BJP has remained in power for fifteen years and hence it is having bright chance to retain power in the State.

Baba Bipin Bihari reached BJP office in a unique manner. When he entered, his supporters, who were pundits, started to chant mantras. BJP leaders and workers present at the BJP office were taken aback by hearing the chanting of mantras and they tried to enquire what is happening. Later, they came to know that Baba Bipin Bihari has come to stake claim for Assembly ticket.

His supporters said that Baba Bipin Bihari is interested to contest from Sagar. Moreover, while interacting with media, Baba Bipin Bihari protested against Sagar MLA Shailendra Jain in a veiled manner by saying that BJP has given enough representation to the community from Sagar and this time, Brahmin should get the chance.

Notably, from last few days, BJP office has become turf for those BJP leaders who are dreaming ticket from various constituencies. They and their supporters are regularly reaching BJP office and resorting to strength show in order to draw attention of BJP leadership towards their candidature. Some workers are also reaching BJP office to protest against sitting BJP MLAs, accusing them of ignoring ground level workers and trying to promote their relatives and kin’s in politics.
