Uttar Pradesh: Verma was trapped by the rivals, says sources
Sources claiming Verma was being trapped by the political rivals in the case so that he could not contest the elections in the future. On the other hand, Samajwadi had insisted that it would offer tickets to the candidates with a clean image. Earlier, sitting Nagina constituency MLA Manoj Paras had been denied a poll ticket. But, as the dispute began to surface in the party ranks, he was given ticket to contest. This could be the reason why a rape-accused like Arun Kumar had given an election ticket.
