Patna: Union Minister and Congress state affairs in-charge Mukul Wasnik was on Saturday heckled by partymen who charged their leadership with 'committing irregularities' in distribution of party tickets.

As the minister for Social Justice and Empowerment, accompanied by state party chief Choudhary Mehboob Ali Kaiser and other party leaders, reached the Scada business centre here for releasing the manifesto for elections in Bihar at a press conference, they faced hundreds of angry party workers.

The protestors raised slogans against the leaders for 'committing irregularities' in distribution of party tickets and accused them of 'entertaining illegal gratifications' by giving tickets to well-off candidates.

However, Wasnik made light of the protests, and said it was nothing 'but pressure tactics.'

"If anybody is at all aggrieved in any manner over distribution of tickets, he or she is welcome to raise the issue within the party instead of fighting for the cause on roads and harming Congress' image," he remarked.
