Ticket aspirants in BJP turn to professionals for ‘impressive’ CVS
Mukesh Sharma Jaipur: Ahead of the December 7 elections in Rajasthan, BJP workers are roping in experts to give their resumes a professional touch as they vie for tickets. While some CVS pack an aspirant’s details in three pages, few of them run into as many as 50 pages, said sources.
Long queues of party workers, armed with their biodatas, from across the state can be seen outside the chamber of state BJP president
Madan Lal Saini in Jaipur. “I receive an average of 80 bio-datas every day. Many of them are impressive,” Saini told DNA.
Ashok Varadani, a shop near the BJP office, told DNA, “We are making an average 10-12 bio-datas daily for the ticket seekers for the Assembly elections. Usually, we make a bio-data of three pages, but some want designs with photos and news cuttings. We charge Rs 450 for a 3-page CV and the cost goes up as pages increase.”
Will a well-presented biodata fetch a ticket for a candidate? “I have read the biodata of a lot of workers and they have no doubt worked in the field. But the party’s Parliamentary Board will decide who will get the ticket on the basis of the opinion of the party workers,” said Saini.
