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.
