Former Union Home Secretary and BJP MP RK Singh has dropped a bombshell, accusing the Bihar unit of the party of taking money for distributing tickets. 

In an emotional outburst, RK Singh who joined BJP couple of years back said that many deserving candidates are being left out as tickets are being handed out to criminals in lieu of money. 

He has also accused former Bihar Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Modi of not picking up his calls. According to the former IAS officer, party cadres are unhappy with the way tickets are being distributed.

In fact, in a statement that may seriously damage BJP's poll prospects in the state, RK Singh questioned what the difference between Lalu Prasad Yadav's party and BJP was if tickets were being doled out to criminals. Narendra Modi in his speeches have repeatedly attacked the Lalu regime calling it jungle-raaj in Bihar.

After RK Singh's outburst BJP has gone into a damage control mode. According to ANI, BJP President Amit Shah and Home Minister Rajnath Singh are trying to placate him. Senior leader  CP Thakur has already refuted RK Singh's claim saying tickets are being handed out in a democratic manner. 

BJP spokesperson has also denied RK Singh's allegations. 

Bihar is going to polls beginning October 12. The poll will be conducted in five phases. The polling will end on November 5 and counting will begin on November 8. Bihar is a big test for Narendra Modi-led BJP after their dubbing in Delhi.
