Mahendrasinh Rana, the first mayor of the Gandhinagar, has asked his party Congress not to give tickets to "imported" candidates in Gandhinagar in upcoming Assembly polls.
Congress had bagged Gandhinagar Municipal Corporation when the maiden polls to the newly formed civic body were held in April last year.
Rana, a formidable Congress leader, said in a press statement on Monday, "While BJP dominates in most parts of the state, local Congress workers kept the party alive in Gandhinagar district. We have learnt that some so-called leaders who have a bad record of losing elections a number of times are eying seats in Gandhinagar city and district which are nurtured by local workers despite all odds. These leaders are using their influence in Delhi to get tickets but local workers will not tolerate such imported candidates."
Rana said he was coming out openly only to draw the attention of his party leaders.
