Barmer/New Delhi: After being denied a BJP ticket from Barmer Lok Sabha constituency, senior Bharatiya Janata Party leader Jaswant Singh's supporters went on a rampage and vandalised the party office in Jaisalmer, reports said. 

Earlier, Singh had expressed his unhappiness over the ticket denial saying that there was need to differentiate between "real" and "fake" BJP, adding that, things happening the party nowadays are not in the line of its ideology. 

The suspense continues on whether the 76-year-old leader will contest as an independent from Barmer seat. The BJP recently gave the Barmer Lok Sabha seat ticket to the new entrant in the party from Congress, Sonaram Choudhry. 

"It is so unfortunate that the BJP has been completely taken over by the elements (outsiders), who never have any respect of party's ideology", he said without naming anyone. 

Singh, who currently represents Darjeeling in Lok Sabha, is likely to announce his decision to contest as independent on March 24. 

Calling BJP a divided party, the former union minister said, "One which is real and the other is unreal or better put original and duplicate. Unfortunately the duplicate part has the reins of party now."

Reports are also coming that Jaswant Singh is mulling quitting the BJP ahead of the General Elections. Singh also ruled out any compromise on his demand for Barmer constituency. 

In a veiled attack, Singh said, "The party has done this to me twice now and now there is no chance of accepting any alternative proposal."
