BJP accuses Opposition of compromising RS polls in Maharashtra, Haryana; seeks cancellation of votes

Mumbai, 10/6: The BJP on Friday accused three MLAs of the ruling coalition MVA in Maharashtra and two of the opposition Congress in Haryana of “compromising and vitiating” the Rajya Sabha poll process in their states by openly displaying ballot papers and urged the Election Commission to cancel their votes.



A BJP delegation, including Union ministers Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi, Gajendra Singh Shekhawat, Jitendra Singh and Arjun Ram Meghwal, met the EC after the polling process was over to seek a probe into the matter and cancellation of their votes.


In its memorandum to the EC, the BJP noted the commission had stated in the matter involving the election of Congress leader Ahmed Patel in Gujarat in 2017 that the very act of showing the ballot paper to anyone other than the election agent of one’s party renders the vote invalid.
