Renewed calls of ‘1 family, 1 ticket’ ahead of key Congress meet | India News

Must read

NEW DELHI: The call for ‘one family, one ticket’ rule in polls is again echoing in Congress, even though the party applied the norm in the recently-held Punjab and Uttarakhand polls to mixed results.
Among the suggestions floated by senior members during the meeting of the Congress Working Committee on Monday to finalise the agenda of discussion for the ‘Chintan Shivir’, this rule was also one of them. However, many members believe that it can’t be a norm that any party can set in stone.
Congress started planning for Uttarakhand and Punjab polls by saying only one member from a family will be given tickets. While the norm led to many rebel candidates and rebellion by senior members in Punjab, it had to be waived off in Uttarakhand where veteran Harish Rawat and his daughter were fielded by the party.
However, the nettlesome issue keeps cropping up in Congress discussions. While some describe it as a critical subject to send a positive message among party workers, others believe that it ignores the practical approach that is required in electoral politics which depends on winnability of candidates.
