Sob story continues in RLSP

Emotion-charged scenes were played out at the press conference of Rashtriya Lok Samata Party (RLSP) chief and Union Minister Upendra Kushwaha's press conference where he was to announce the names of party nominees, with an aspirant Ashok Gupta slumping on the floor and crying aloud after being left out of the race. "Baap re baap! loot liya," he said as he lay supine on the floor, giving a hard time to party volunteers who tried to remove him. Gupta alleged he had "paid money" to the party but was still denied a ticket to contest from Narkatiaganj constituency. He, however, later clarified the money he claimed to have paid to the party was at the time it was formed.
