1,400 people aspire to get Congress ticket for BMC polls


Mumbai : Mumbai Congress has received nearly 1,400 applications from aspiring candidates to contest the upcoming municipal elections in the megapolis, party’s city unit president Sanjay Nirupam said here today.

He said a committee headed by former state Health Minister Suresh Shetty will meet the aspirants and profile the wards in each district over the next few days.

“Compiled data of the scrutinised candidates and the district-wise wards will be sent to the district parliamentary boards, which in turn will select the probable candidates and forward the same to the Mumbai Regional Congress Committee (MRCC) for final decision,” Nirupam added.
