Bhopal(Madhya Pradesh): The Congress party has changed as many as 11 tickets for the local bodies election. Among them eight are from Bhopal, as per the list released by the party late Tuesday evening. On Wednesday former Chief Minister Kamal Nath conducted the meeting of party leaders aiming for the elections.

Internal fray between Congress and BJP candidates is high. Senior party leaders are trying to calm them down. BJP state president VD Sharma by issuing a strict directive said, “Rebel candidates should withdraw nomination or get ready to face action. On the other hand, Congress leaders are seen requesting rebel candidates to withdraw their nominations in favour of party authorised candidates.

The ticket of Santosh Kansana for Ward no-29 of Bhopal was changed and given to her son Devenshu Kansana. The district returning officer had cancelled her nomination form, because of discrepancy in caste certificate.
