While most of the disappointed contenders are yet to disclose their cards, they make no bones about their feeling of being left out.
With Congress turncoat Subodh Uniyal fielded from Narendranagar, BJP's very own Om Gopal Rawat, a former MLA who had consistently nursed the constituency has announced his intention to contest as an independent from the seat.
There is discontent among party leaders in almost all seats from where Congress rebels have been fielded. Former legislator Asha Nautiyal who was expecting a ticket from Kedarnath is unhappy with Congress turncoat Shailarani Rawat fielded from the seat.
Similarly, former MLA Shailendra Singh Rawat is disappointed over Harak Singh Rawat being fielded from Kotdwar.
Former MLA Suresh Chand Jain is sulking in Roorkee from where Pradip Batra has been declared the party's official nominee.
Some of the party's sitting MLAs have also been denied tickets including Yamkeshwar MLA Vijaya Barthwal and Chaubatakhal MLA and former Pradesh BJP president Tirath Singh Rawat.
While Barthwal has been denied a ticket to field former CM and Pauri MP BC Khanduri's daughter Ritu Khanduri, Tirath was ignored to make room for Congress turncoat Amrita Rawat's husband Satpal Maharaj.
Resentment among BJP leaders ahead of assembly polls doesn't augur well for the party with Congress in a mood to lap up disgruntled BJP elements and field them against erstwhile party rebels.
