MCD Election 2017: Congress doesn't see AAP as factor

Give EVMs to us we'll make software public Arvind Kejriwal to Election Commission

There is a total of 272 wards in the three municipal corporations in the city, including 104 each in South and North Delhi municipal corporations and 64 in the East Delhi municipal corporation.

Among the names in the second list was Mukesh Goel, now the Leader of the Opposition in the North Delhi Municipal Corporation.

Ex-deputy speaker of Delhi Assembly and three-time MLA from Kondli and Patparganj Assembly seats, Amrish Gautam said on Monday that he quit the Congress to save his self-respect.

With the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) resolutely pursuing the Electronic Voting Machine (EVM) tampering issue, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Monday took a swing at the former saying that it is over hyping the matter.

His threat to quit the party came a day after the Congress released its second list of candidates for the civic polls.

US wants China to take action to stop North Korea nuke tests
Previously, the United Nations imposed sanctions on North Korea for three nuclear tests it carried out in 2006, 2009 and 2013. Defense against missiles is not 100 percent effective and only one needs to get through for events to spiral out of control.

Mr Walia told PTI that he has written a letter to Delhi Congress President Ajay Maken, complaining against irregularities and violation of party rules in ticket distribution. If they think they don't need us, they should tell us.

"Even I was made to wait for more than eight hours at the doors of Congress leaders entrusted with power of finalising the tickets for the MCD polls", lamented Amrish.

A number of party workers who could not succeed in getting a ticket today assembled at the Delhi BJP office and chanted slogans outside the gate as a mark of protest.

Walia was MLA from Laxmi Nagar in eastern Delhi for four consecutive terms. We need to respect senior leaders. He said that Pandey was not only "popular in his area, but he was also a choice of party workers at the grass roots". I will also raise my concerns with the party high command.

Further attacking party supremo Arvind Kejriwal, he said when the world is moving forward, Kejriwal wants to use the old school system to mislead people.
