New Delhi: Heartbreak for supporters of former Okhla MLA Asif Mohammad Khan as Congress gives the ticket to former Rajya Sabha MP Parvez Hashmi from Okhla.
Parvez is a senior Congress leader and former Okhla MLA.
After the news was splashed, Asif supporters have called a meeting to discuss the course of action, said sources.
After the Congress party denied ticket to Asif Md Khan from Okhla constituency, Khan said he will contest as an independent.
The party has fielded Mohinder Chaudhary from the Mehrauli assembly seat, Parveen Rana from Bijwasan and Jai Prakash Panwar from the Madipur (SC) seat.
The Congress has announced names of 66 candidates so far for the election to the 70-member Delhi assembly and it is likely to leave four seats for its ally RJD
