Patna: A BJP legislator in Bihar, Vikram Kunwar, alleged on Sunday said that the party had “sold ticket” to jailed former parliamentarian Mohammad Shahabuddin’s shooter Manoj Singh for Rs 2 crore.


The BJP denied a ticket to me, a sitting legislator, but sold the ticket to Shahabuddin’s shooter Manoj for Rs 2 crore,” said Vikram Kunwar, the BJP legislator from Raghunathpur assembly segment in Siwan district.

Kunwar’s claim comes a day after BJP parliamentarian RK Singh embarrassed the party by accusing it of giving tickets for the Bihar assembly polls in return for money.

Kunwar said RK Singh, a former union home secretary, had rightly raised this issue. “I am an example of the issue RK Singh raised in public about how the party had given tickets for the Bihar assembly polls in return for money,” he said.

Shahabuddin is currently lodged in jail, serving a life term in a murder case.

RK Singh said earlier that the family members of certain BJP leaders and criminals were given tickets at the cost of committed party workers.

The BJP distributed tickets by taking money, fielded family members and relatives of party leaders and gave tickets to criminals,” the Lok Sabha member from Ara constituency said.

RK Singh, who joined the BJP ahead of the 2014 Lok Sabha polls, also expressed displeasure over the denial of BJP tickets to rightful candidates. “What is the difference between you (BJP) and Lalu Prasad if you give tickets to criminals,” Singh questioned.

Doris Lessing who won a Nobel Prize in Literature

London (CNN)- At five o'clock in the morning, the esteemed 86-year-old astrophysicist Jim Peebles was woken suddenly by the telephone ringing.

"In previous experience, the only phone calls at that time of night are bad news," he said. This one was great news. "The opening sentence from the caller was: 'The Nobel committee has voted to award you the Nobel Prize in Physics. Do you accept?'" Peebles recalled. The wording threw him. Who wouldn't accept a Nobel Prize? "You know the Bob Dylan fiasco?" he said during a phone interview with CNN. "That might have put the wind up them."The "fiasco" Peebles mentions refers to the 2016 Nobel Prize in Literature, which was controversially given to an utterly unimpressed Dylan.Aside from being ever-presents on college campuses in the 1960s, little connects Peebles, an expert in theoretical cosmology, with Dylan. But one of the starkest contrasts might lie in their reactions to winning a Nobel -- and the songwriter is far from the only laureate whose crowning turned out to be an awkward affair.

The five committees are notoriously secretive, fiercely shielding their choices from the outside world -- including the laureates themselves, who are told of their victories just minutes before they are announced to the public.
