The Economic Times - - Pure Politics -

THANE: Around 20 of­fice-bear­ers of BJP’s city unit on Sun­day re­signed from their posts to protest against the al­leged “high hand­ed­ness” of party lead­ers and ig­nor­ing tick­ets to “loyal and ded­i­cated” work­ers for the up­com­ing Thane Mu­nic­i­pal Cor­po­ra­tion (TMC) elec­tions. Elec­tion to the Thane civic body is sched­uled to be held on Fe­bru­ary 21. The of­fice-bear­ers, who ad­dressed a press con­fer­ence here, said: “At least 80% of those who re­cently joined BJP from other par­ties have been given tick­ets at the cost of loyal... work­ers, who toiled for the growth of the party in city.” —
