Patna: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader RK Singh today expressed his dissatisfaction over distribution of tickets for the upcoming Assembly polls.

Singh alleged that money was taken from candidates for tickets and that incumbent MLAs have been denied tickets.

"Popular sitting MLAs are denied tickets and criminals are being given tickets. No wonder party workers are enraged," he said.

"When such people will be given ticket, what will be the difference between Lalu and us (BJP)?" he added.
