New Delhi: The Delhi state Congress has stepped up its preparations for the elections of the Municipal Corporation. Sunday was the last day to apply for the tickets. Till date more than 5000 applications have reached the state Congress headquarters.   

1500 applications were submitted on Saturday alone. The scrutiny for the applications is expected to continue till March 15.

According to sources, there are many MLAs and board members who want their kith and kin to get the tickets.

Interestingly, as there is 50 percent reservation for women, there is very less seats left for men. Hence, in such a situation the leaders are keen on getting a ticket for their daughters and daughter-in-laws.

However, state president JP Agrawal has maintained that only grass root level leaders will be given tickets who will be able to win the elections.
