Ghaziabad: As political parties brace up for
the crucial Assembly election in Uttar Pradesh, things stand
interestingly in Muradnagar constituency here with various
rebels giving nervous moments to their parent parties by
contesting as independents.

The list of unhappy candidates, who aim to disturb all
permutations and combinations, refuses to end, leaving all the
parties in fray struggling to keep their houses in order.

After facing a last-moment denial of ticket by Samajwadi
Party, Dishant Tyagi is now locking horns against his own
party candidate Rajpal Tyagi, a former minister in Mayawati
government, who joined SP last week.

Accusing SP of doing injustice with him, Dishant today
said he will leave no stone unturned to hand Rajpal, a
seven-time MLA from the constituency a shocking defeat.
BJP`s problems are no different where dissident Ram
Ashray Sharma, after being denied ticket by the party, is
eying to spoil prospects of its candidate Satender Tyagi.
