Angry over denial of ticket to Upadhyay, his supporters today staged protest outside the party office.

Upadhyay, on his part, appealed to his supporters to calm down and concentrate on ensuring victory of BJP in Assembly elections.
 
"I appeal to all my supporters to calm down and help party win Delhi elections," said Satish Upadhyay.

He also made it clear that he had never demanded a ticket.

"I never demanded a ticket, It was my personal decision to not contest election, not upset at all," said Upadhyay.

"I have always maintained that I want to contest on all 70 seats,have to ensure my party's success under Kiran (Bedi) ji's leadership," added Upadhyay.
