New Delhi [India], Apr 22 (ANI): MP Udit Raj on Monday took to Twitter to express his disappointment at not receiving a party ticket to field elections,  a day after the BJP announced its candidates for four parliamentary seats in Delhi.
 “Amit Shah ji, I have been trying to talk to you many times. I have sent an SMS to you. I also tried to speak to Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Manoj Tiwari is saying that I will get the ticket. I tried to speak to Nirmala Sitharaman as well. I have requested Arun Jaitely,” Raj tweeted.

“I merged my party, my supporters are restless about my ticket. My name has not been announced from North West Delhi. My supporters have asked me to wait till 4 pm today,” he further tweeted.  

“At the end, I expect the BJP that they will not cheat dalits,” he said in another tweet.
On Sunday, the BJP announced its candidates for four parliamentary seats of Delhi.
The party has fielded Harsh Vardhan from Chandni Chowk, Manoj Tiwari from North East Delhi, Pravesh Verma from West Delhi and Ramesh Bidhuri from South Delhi.
In 2014, Raj had defeated the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) candidate Rakhi Birla by over one lakh votes in North West Delhi
