"The Congress feels that the party will have a better chance of winning the elections if candidates are declared much in advance," Ajay said last evening during his 'Parivartan Yatra' in Bairagarh township under Huzur Assembly constituency of Bhopal.

He also said that Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi, during his Bhopal visit, had also mentioned that the party will distribute its Assembly tickets six months in advance to give candidates time to prepare for the elections.

Addressing a Sindhi community gathering on the occasion, he urged the community leaders to shun groupism and set an example for the benefit of their people and fight the upcoming elections unitedly to defeat BJP in the state.
