President's son hopeful of Congress ticket from Amravati

"I am banking on my work over the last several years from Amravati, where I have been associated with educational institutions and social work," Raosaheb said. Raosaheb appeared before the party panel for Maharashtra polls, at Tilak Bhawan in central Mumbai yesterday. "My application will now go before the screening committee and I am hopeful of the ticket," he said.

Citing social work like organising blood donation camps, Raosaheb said "for the last 10 years, I have been in politics through the Congress Seva Dal, as Mumbai unit secretary and presently as Vice-President of Amravati unit."

When pointed out that he was seeking Congress ticket from Amravati although sitting MLA and minister of state for public works Sunil Deshmukh is also a contender, Raosaheb said "there is nothing wrong in my seeking the ticket." "I had also sought the Assembly ticket from Badnera during the 2004 elections," Raosaheb said.
