‘Tickets for polls not to be distributed on religion basis’
Jaipur, Nov. 18 (PTI): Union minister Rajyavardhan Rathore on Sunday said tickets for assembly polls should not be distributed on the basis of religion, amid questions in some quarters on why the BJP has not given ticket to any Muslim candidate in Rajasthan.
“There should be no quota for ticket distribution for any religion. If the work done by our government has not reached to any religion then only we can be under question,” he said.
The saffron party has not given ticket to any Muslim candidate in Rajasthan so far. “Triple talaq is something on which (the Congress) party, which gives ticket on quota system (to Muslims and others), could not do anything and we (the BJP government) worked on that,” the MoS for Information and Broadcasting said at a press conference here.
