LIKABALI, Nov 29: With the date of by-polls for four states closing in, the battle for the BJP ticket to 28th Likabali Assembly Constituency seems to have gone out of hand, as an angry mob reportedly vandalised the BJP mandal office in Likabali at around 9 pm on Wednesday.
Sources in Likabali informed that the mob was allegedly upset with the recommendation of Gensi ZPM, Kardo Nyicyor as the BJP candidate to the 28th Likabali polls.
