"Congress is selling Lok Sabha tickets...poor Congressmen who are keen to enter the poll fray with limited resources are dumping the party," SAD President Sukhbir Singh Badal said after inducting sitting Congress MP from Fatehgarh Sahib Sukhdev Singh Libra into the party fold.

He alleged that the decisions taken by the Congress are by a chosen few and no grass root level worker is taken into confidence. "Those who are getting tickets in Congress are getting them only by paying huge money," he said.

Sukhbir claimed that Union Minister of State Santosh Choudhary, who was among the front runner from her bastion Hoshiarpur, was denied ticket by the Congress and she herself alleged that she could not afford money to pay for a Lok Sabha ticket.

Congress had fielded sitting Jalandhar MP Mohinder Singh Kaypee from Hoshiarpur seat.
