He alleged that he was denied a ticket to fight the upcoming District Development Council (DDC) election.
Talking to a local news agency, CNI, Mr. Mohammad said: “I am working for party since long but party today give not me a chance to contest DDC election from my Constituency, rather they choose that person who has not ever voted for party, that is why I left the party.”
