Alleging large-scale rigging by RJD activists, a Janata Dal (United) delegation led by senior leader Sharad Yadav on Thursday met the Election Commission and demanded repoll at 199 booths in Madhepura and 50 polling stations in Sitamarhi Lok Sabha constituencies in Bihar.

After a nearly 30-minute meeting with the three-member Commission, Yadav, who contested against RJD supremo Laloo Prasad Yadav in Madhepura, told reporters that while polling was peaceful in booths manned by para-military forces, at places where Bihar police and homeguard jawans were deployed, the polling was rigged.

He alleged that the block development officers (BDOs) of Udakishanganj and Singhehswar assembly segments of Madhepura were found "openly helping" the ruling RJD.

Yadav also said that he has complained before the EC regarding certain irregularities in Meerut Lok Sabha constituency in Uttar Pradesh where JD(U) general secretary KC Tyagi is in the fray.
