He also said family members of BJP leaders and criminals were also given tickets at the cost of committed party workers.

“The BJP has distributed tickets by taking money and fielded family members, relatives of party leaders and given tickets to criminals,” Singh, an MP from Ara parliamentary constituency, told the media.

Singh, who is a former union home secretary and known as an honest and hard working officer during his over three-decade-old career, joined the BJP ahead of the 2014 Lok Sabha polls.

“It appears to me that the people were betrayed by the party,” Singh said.

On Thursday, hundreds of angry BJP workers and leaders protested in front of the party office here after they were denied tickets.
