In a communiqué released to the media, the senior BJP vice-president has advised those MLAs who have been elected three to four time to make way  and give chance to younger leaders.

“For tickets, leaders are not only ignoring rules but also are keeping honesty and decency at bay. If such a scenario persists, the day is not far when it would be difficult for politicians to freely move about as the public is fast losing trust in them,” stated Shanta Kumar.
