Congress MLA Vikramjit Chowdhary interrogating people who came posing as AAP workers in Phillaur. However, these people said that they had come to collect the seeds.
In the Lok Sabha by-election of Jalandhar, there has been a political ruckus regarding the polling agents. The Congress and the BJP have released some photos, claiming that the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has appointed polling agents here by calling workers from outside.
On the other hand, Education Minister of Aam Aadmi Party government Harjot Bains said that the opposition parties are not getting polling agents. Their booths are lying empty. Regarding this, BJP’s state head Ashwani Sharma said that a complaint has also been sent to the Election Commission and DC of Jalandhar in this regard.
Punjab’s AAP government’s education minister Harjot Bains posted a photo on social media claiming that the booths of Congress and Akali Dal are lying vacant in Shahkot.
Congress MLA released pictures
Congress MLA from Jalandhar Cantt Pragat Singh has shared the photo of Baljit Chand Sharma sitting at the booth. He claimed that Baljit has been made the polling agent at booth number 85 in Adampur, while Baljit is the block head of the Aam Aadmi Party from Dera Bassi.
Similarly Ashish Nayyar is Patiala but he has been made polling agent in booth number 83 of Jalandhar Central. Sher Bahadur Singh of Bathinda’s Rampuraphool has been made in charge of booth number 150 in Phillaur.
Pragat Singh said that such hooliganism has never happened in elections. They did not even get polling booth in-charge in Jalandhar. People of Bathinda have been illegally shifted to Phillaur. He said that this is the condition of those who call themselves staunchly honest.
Congress MLA caught in Phillaur
Congress MLA Vikramjit Chowdhary from Phillaur has posted a video on social media. In which the outside leaders of Aam Aadmi Party have been allegedly caught. Although they are claiming that they did not come here for the election but to collect the seeds. Congress alleges that these are outsiders who have come here to work for AAP.
Former Akali MLA caught in Adampur
In Adampur, former Akali MLA Pawan Tinnu alleged that Aam Aadmi Party workers from Attari are sitting in the polling booth here. He said that whoever sits locally, we have no objection. It is the rule of the Election Commission itself that no outsider can come. Despite this all this is happening. So is this a free and fair election?
