Union minister Narendra Singh Tomar and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) vice president Vinay Sahasrabuddhe Monday met Lok Sabha Speaker and Indore MP Sumitra Mahajan in connection with ticket distribution for the Madhya Pradesh Assembly polls.
The polls for the 230-member state assembly will be held on November 28. Counting of votes will take place on December 11. Indore district has nine assembly constituencies.
“Tai (Sumitra Mahajan) is our senior leader. As she was abroad, we could not hold talks over the Assembly poll tickets with her. Following her return, we called on her,” Gwalior Lok Sabha MP Tomar told reporters in Indore.
Tomar and Sahasrabuddhe held talks with Mahajan for about 90 minutes, party functionaries said.
Tomar denied that Mahajan was upset over the process of picking party candidates. “Mahajan is not unhappy at all,” he said.
BJP sources have said the ticket distribution for seats in Indore were getting delayed due to a reported tussle between Mahajan and BJP general secretary and Mhow MLA Kailash Vijayvargiya.
