SP leaders luring, threatening voters: BJP to EC
BJP on Thursday alleged that the Samajwadi Party ministers and Legislators in Uttar Pradesh are trying to influence the voters by “luring and threatening” and flouting the model code of conduct, as it knocked on the state Chief Electoral Officer’s door demanding action.
“SP ministers and Legislators are trying to lure and threaten voters and openly flouting the model code of conduct. EC should take cognisance of it and initiate strict action against such leaders,” BJP spokesman Chandra Mohan said.
BJP leaders JPS Rathore and Kuldeep Pati Tripathi on Thursday met the UP Chief Electoral Officer T Venkatesh here and apprised him about the situation and cited incidents where Samajwadi Party leaders flouted the model code of conduct.
