Union minister Rajyavardhan Rathore Sunday said tickets for assembly polls should not be distributed on the basis of religion, amid questions in some quarters on why the BJP has not given ticket to any Muslim candidate in Rajasthan.

“There should be no quota for ticket distribution for any religion. If the work done by our government has not reached to any religion then only we can be under question,” he said.

The ruling party has released three lists so far of 170 candidates for the elections to be held on December 7 for 200 assembly constituencies.

The saffron party has not given ticket to any Muslim candidate in Rajasthan so far.
