Tamil Nadu rural body polls: BJP candidate gets only one vote


Chennai, Oct 12 (IANS): A BJP candidate in the rural local body polls in Tamil Nadu got only one vote even though his own household had five voters.

D. Karthik, who contested for the post of ward member in Periyanaickenpalayam union in Coimbatore district, has become a butt of jokes on social media platforms with the hashtag #Single_Vote_BJP trending on Twitter.

Writer Meena Kandaswamy who is a known critic of BJP and its policies, tweeted: "BJP candidate gets only one vote in local body elections. Proud of the four other voters in his household who decided to vote for others".

Another Twitter user, Suresh Raj said: "He has five members in the family but got one vote.. great going BJP".

Karthik had campaigned extensively even using the photographs of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Union Home Minister Amit Shah, and party President J.P. Nadda.

BJP state President K. Annamalai was not available for comment even after repeated calls.

    Him and his family lives in 4th ward. He conducted in 9th ward bye election. how can his family vote in 9th ward. and he campaigned by himself. all it revealed by Tamilnadu BJP President Mr.Annamalai. And he announced, next election karthick works nicely, he will get ticket from BJP. In Tamil nadu More than 90 Percent media's are supporting DMK. Because DMK is Supporting MEDIA Owner for there own Interest. Now BJP Has done Good job of, Those Published False News in Media, has complaint to concern union department going to take action those who published wrong news. those who published wrong news, now they have changed the news and re telecasting the news, Karthick has Independent candidate. More Over, Rural body polls, State Ruling party will win in this election. This theory works in our entire country. Same thing happend in karnataka too.

    Bjp has the habit of ridiculously calling Rahul Gandhi Pappu Congress mukth BHARAT etc .. As per article ... Candidate .. Was carrying photos of pm Modi etc etc Important point is difference between North and south .. ideology .. North has more illiterates Caste extremism ..etc Now bjp which is being thrust on More enlightened south ..one nation one vote etc ... But voters are smart ... Most of southern states are not bjp below the Vindhyas .. Karnataka if shri Yediyurappa revolts As can be seen in recent raids It will be very difficult for bjp .. The raids are happening more as vendetta... As in govt contracts various files / levels have to be cleared to obtain orders & payment So it is not only single person involvement but a whole chain ...

    As a mark of respect for democracy and with moral values no candidate with clear conscience votes himself rather votes the opponent. If it was zero votes to this person then people would have appreciated a lot for his genuine generosity than becoming now a butt of joke with his own vote. Even his family did not vote him.
