Officials Force Voters to Vote for BJP candidate in Begusarai

Begusarai: This election has not been anything short of drama filled with controversies. Reportedly, voters from the Karichak Babhangama panchayat, falling under the Begusarai constituency, today alleged that the administration forced them to vote for a particular candidate against their will.


One of the voters said that while she was pressing the first button, administrators forced her to press the second one which allegedly belongs to the BJP candidate and union minister Giriraj Singh.

Earlier in the day, there were reports that Congress workers were allegedly forcing voters from the Arta village in Barmer, Rajasthan to vote for the Congress candidate and when they denied to comply, they were manhandled. However, the police later claimed that an old-rivalry between the two groups was the cause for the tussle. There have also been reports of EVM malfunctioning and booth-capturing in previous phases where the voters alleged that the vote went to the BJP candidate even when they didn’t vote for him/her.

Begusarai has been in the limelight since the time young student leader and CPI candidate, Kanhaiya Kumar, filed his nomination to contest against BJP’s candidate Giriraj Singh and RJD’s candidate Tanveer Hasan. A tough fight from Kanhaiya has made the BJP stoop to a new low with its controversial IT cell circulating fake news and morphed images to spread animosity against him by portraying him as anti-national who will divide India into pieces.

While it is for the Election Commission to adjudicate this matter, reports of such incidents are a serious setback for India, the largest democracy in the world!
