Over 1,000 postal ballot covers found in BJP leader's hotel in Badami: Reports


Daijiworld Media Network - Badami

Badami, May 14: Over a thousand postal ballot covers were found at a local Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader’s hotel in Badami on Monday May 14, said media reports.

A report by News 18 states that the BJP workers were opening the ballots.

The postal ballots were found in Anand Lodge, belonging to a BJP leader here.

Reports said that some suspects fled the spot when news reporters who received information arrived.

The Congress has demanded Election Commission to probe the matter.

Reacting to the News 18 report, All India Congress Committee Convenor and spokesperson Priyanka Chaturvedi tweeted, "The more desperate BJP, the more desperate their tactics. How low can one go? Will EC take note?"

Election officials who received information arrived at the hotel and conducted investigations.

With hours to go for the counting, winning the Badami constituency is a prestige issue both for the Congress and the BJP. Chief minister Siddaramaiah is up against BJP's Sriramulu, a close aide of mining baron Janardhana Reddy.

    A reader over here said sriramulu is a honest man...yeah he is right
    Even Nirav modi..choksi are innocent..congress looted money and framed them...
    Even veerappan.cyanide Mohan all are innocents and honest people...congress did all dirty works...

    A humble request to BJP people...you are electing a leader to rule..stop supporting a corrupt one just cz he is from your fav party...
    or at least ask for change of candidate..you guys can ask for a real honest candidate right..it is your rights to ask..

    Stop supporting even corrupt leaders blindly ..

    EC should probe the matter and identify if there was any one from the EC office involved in this. How could 1000 postal ballots be found in a hotel without involvement from within???

    If our Election commision of India is serious about 'democracy' this rigging would have never happened.
    It is true fact that both the seats were CM Siddaramaiah is contesting BJP wanted him to defeat with secret deal with JD(S).
    One thousand post is serious issue when the margin of votes of winning candidates is narrow. This is the very reason BJP has also asked to field 'Mahila Empowerment Party' by threatening the founder of the group through Enforcement Directorate.

    I would like to request Election Commission of India to invalidate these bogus votes which may have directly voted in favor of BJP candidate Sriramalu.

    Perhaps after T.N. Seshan Election Commission hardly elected honest officer who sincere about the democratic process.

    This may not be single case may be every constituency may have rigged. I seriously doubt that this time assembly election in Karnataka is free and fair.

    Obviously there is a disconnect here. Addressing somebody unversally recognized as a scamster and tax cheat as ‘Sir’ and being very liberal in the use of terms like vile and corrupt is a poor reflection on your pathetic mindset.

    With absolutely corrupt leaders to elect from BJP, there should not have been any contest to congress at all. This is to add to Modi's own failures in every front. Karnataka people are educated and peaceful. However, with the confidence with which Amit Shah and Yuddi is talking, there is already something that is worked out, if not with ballots, but kind of things like this.

    It is time to watch out and wait, with vigilance. Just hope that that true verdict of people is given rather than something played around with.

    You mean to say BJP is Ganga Ka jaisa parvitri. Come on Mr. Shetty, accept the real fact. What you have said might be BJP culture, as they will go to any extent to tarnish the image of opposite party. No ethics, no morale with BJP.
