    Assam polls: Digvijay faces ticket-seekers ire

    Guwahati: Congress General Secretary Digvijay Singh on Tuesday had to face the ire of partymen who failed to get tickets to contest the ensuing Assembly polls in Assam.

    Just as Singh, who is in-charge of Congress affairs in the state, arrived at the party's state headquarters, irate ticket-seekers gheraoed him by shouting slogans.

    Objecting to the nomination of some candidates, angry party supporters staged a dharna and tore election posters of the party.

    Efforts to pacify the supporters by Singh failed as they continued to raise slogans.

    "We will talk to them and hope they will understand. The party has given ticket to strong candidates who have got chances of winning," he said.
