Mysore, Nov 13 (UNI) Karnataka Women and Child Welfare Minister Narendraswamy today alleged that senior Congress leader Margret Alva was involved in the sale of ticket racket.

Talking to newspersons here, Mr Narendraswamy, who recently quit the Congress to join ruling BJP, said, ''those who are involved in such rackets are now making allegations against their colleagues.'' Mr Narendraswamy alleged that in 1994 Assembly elections, it was Ms Alva who was responsible for not getting Congress ticket to him.

The Minister also pointed out that being an AICC General Secretary and member in ticket allotment committee, Ms Alva knew how the tickets were distributed. Her allegations must be true, he added.

''She may be making allegations now, but I do not think that Ms Alva was innocent,'' he added.

He urged the Congress to subject Ms Alva and other leaders, including Kagodu Thimappa and K C Kondaiah to narco analysis test to find out the truth behind Ms Alva's allegations.
