Uttar Pradesh BJP chief Keshav Prasad Maurya said turncoats joining BJP before the coming Assembly elections have not promised party tickets.
“All those who have joined BJP from parties like BSP and Samajwadi Party have not been promised party tickets for the coming poll. They have come expressing faith in the party’s policies and working of Prime Minister Narendra Modi,” Maurya told PTI in an interview.
“Names of winnable candidates will be taken into consideration but it is wrong to think that all those joining BJP will get tickets,” Maurya said.
“I want to tell party workers that BJP will safeguard the honour of its core worker at all cost,” he said adding BJP is a pro-worker party and any worker can aspire to reach any of the posts in the party.
“There are too many applications for tickets for the coming polls, but I believe that disciplined BJP workers will accept all decisions the day they are taken,” he said.
Maurya expressed his confidence over UP polls saying, “It was concluded after meticulous calculations that we will win not less than 300 seats and now it is being coined as a slogan in the state, which has 403 Assembly seats.”
