Those applying for tickets in the state Congress will also have to pay Rs.11 thousand. The party has implemented such a system for the first time. Order has been issued for this. In the order this amount has been called ‘cooperation amount’.
This proposal was placed in front of Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi during the meeting recently. Then it was said that the application fee should be taken so that only serious people can apply for contesting elections. However, not all leaders were of the same opinion on this. Most had rejected the proposal, saying it was unnecessary and different implications would be drawn.
In this regard, State President Ajay Kumar Lallu has said that the party has decided that along with the application, financial assistance should also be taken from the people. Hence the order has been issued. However, as soon as Priyanka returns to Delhi from here, an order has been issued to the effect that now this cooperation amount will have to be given along with the application. Applications are invited till 25 September.
Most are of the view that the application fee or the contribution amount, whatever it is being called, should not be taken. This will not send a good message to the public. Apart from this, Sanjay Sharma, Secretary, State Congress Jan Vyatha Nistaran Committee and former Lucknow District President Vijay Bahadur have been authorized to take applications at the state level.
