Patna: Charging the state top leaders with
ignoring candidates with mass support after release of list of
77 nominees for Bihar assembly poll, senior Congress leader
Anirudh Prasad alias Saudhu Yadav today announced to resign
from the state party Election Campaign Committee.

"I am really pained and hurt at the way the list of 77
candidates of the party has been released in New Delhi
without holding consultations with senior leaders... it has
virtually ignored the claims of the genuine leaders of mass
support in Congress in Bihar," Sadhu Yadav told reporters
here.

He said he had decided to resign as Vice Chairman of the
Bihar Congress Poll Campaign Committee and hand over the
letter in this regard to the state party chief Choudhary
Mehbood Ali Kaiser once he returned to Patna from New Delhi.

"I am also free to take the future course of action...
but I will highlight the issue of irregularities and politics
which has led to denial of tickets to genuine workers, while
continuing in the party," he said.

He said while his supporters were ignored in allotment
of tickets in the first list, some MPs from outside had
prominent say in the list.
