Fight the ticket statement
Senior leader R. V. Deshpande along with Dinesh Gundurao and Ramalingareddy have given statements. It is important that he said that ticket allocation process will not be done by any leader in Congress.
“The High Command will finalize the ticket allocation in consultation with KPCC president and CLP leaders. Here someone does not decide the ticket. We should go to the elections with unity. My hope is that our government should come,” said former minister R. V. Deshpande said.
‘One cannot decide on a ticket. There will be an election committee and a review committee for that. Everyone’s opinion is sought. Opinions are collected at the local level as well,’ said former minister Dinesh Gundurao.
‘Ticket distribution in Congress is not done in secret. After gathering the opinion of the election committee about who will get the ticket, a recommendation will be made to the high command. KPCC working president Ramalingareddy said that the high command will announce the ticket only after discussing it with the CLP leaders, KPCC president and other leaders.
