"We have party leaders and workers who are working very hard. We had given them tickets in panchayat and assembly polls. But in case of fighting Lok Sabha polls we don't have enough candidates who can put up a fight and win the elections," Mr Ghosh said.
When asked whether resentment was brewing in the party ranks over leaders from other parties defecting and getting prominence in the BJP, Mr Ghosh said,"There is no such thing in our party. If someone wants to come and join our party to be part of our development process, how can we stop it."
