Delhi MCD polls 2017:  No ticket to any sitting councillors, says Manoj Tiwari

New Delhi :

Bharatiya Janata Party on Tuesday made it clear that it would not field any sitting councillor in the upcoming MCD polls regardless of his or her contribution in their particular area. The move would certainly draw forehead lines among the present councillors. 

While addressing a press conference, Delhi BJP president Manoj Tiwari justified the move, saying that the saffron party would encourage new faces in the MCD polls who have worked on the grass-root level.

He said the dynasty politics will not be entertained and people having political patronage will not be encouraged. The party has taken the decision unanimously.  

When asked about Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's demand of ballot paper usage instead EVMs, Tiwari said if the Delhi chief minister does not have faith in EVMs, then a repolling should be convened at all 67 seats in the national capital.
