Bathinda, January 29
Suspecting rigging in the local bodies elections, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) today said the Congress was preparing to “assassinate the right to vote”.
In a joint statement, AAP MLAs Baljinder Kaur and Rupinder Kaur Ruby alleged that under the ruling government, a large number of bogus voters were registered in a single house. They said earlier, the SAD-BJP had been winning the municipal bodies elections by committing such scams.
Cong releases list of Nangal candidates
Nangal: The Congress has announced on Friday the names of candidates fielded from all 19 wards for municipal council elections to be held on February 14. Punjab Speaker and local MLA Rana KP Singh released the list.
“The Congress government is on the same path. There were clear indications that 85 voters were registered at one house in ward no.10 of Bathinda. Similarly, 84 voters were registered at a house in ward no.42,” they alleged.
The leaders said traditional parties were making every effort to seize power.
“It is surprising that no inquiry was conducted by the administration in this regard. How could there be so many voters in one house?” they said.
The AAP MLAs demanded the Punjab State Election Commissioner to take immediate action in this regard. They said such fraudulent votes would be detrimental to democracy.
