Manipur Congress accuses ruling BJP of violating political rights
The Congress and BJP in Manipur have been locked in a war of words even after polling for the two Lok Sabha seats have concluded, and while pending re-poll in some polling stations yet to be confirmed from the ECI. Addressing a press conference, Manipur Congress spokesperson and sitting legislator, K Meghachandra alleged that BJP had violated “political rights” of voters during the poll in the Inner Manipur Parliamentary Constituency held on April 18.
The spokesperson also demanded fresh poll in all the polling stations across the Andro Assembly segment of Inner Manipur PC where he alleged BJP workers had suppressed the political rights of the voters.
The BJP workers took control of entire polling stations across the Assembly segment and barred not only polling agents of the other candidates but also candidate themselves from entering the polling stations, he alleged. For the sake of fair poll, fresh poll should be held at all the polling stations under Andro Assembly segment, he said.
