BJP accuses ruling RJD of poll rigging, violence in Bihar
BJP has charged the ruling RJD in Bihar with indulging in violence and using official machinery to rig polling in the fourth phase of LS polls.
BJP on Wednesday charged the ruling RJD in Bihar with indulging in violence and using official machinery to rig polling in the third phase of Lok Sabha elections and said it vindicated the party's apprehension of violence in the state.
"The incidents have vindicated our stand that the RJD would misuse official machinery and what we had told the Election Commission on Tuesday has been proved right. This action by the RJD shows the party wants to undermine democracy and is desperate to win elections," BJP spokesman Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said.
He said wherever booth capturing and violence had taken place, it was carried out by the RJD in connivance with the official machinery.
However, exuding confidence over the voter "response" to the party in the third phase, he said Congress would complete a "hat-trick" of defeats under the leadership of Sonia Gandhi and history would be repeated with the party splitting.
He asked the Congress to name the successor to Sonia Gandhi under whose leadership the party was facing "imminent defeat".
