Rahul Gandhi finds this leader 'the most honest man of BJP'
New Delhi : As two states – Haryana and Maharashtra – voted on Monday for a single-phase Assembly elections, former Congress president Rahul Gandhi took a potshot at the Bharatiya Janata Party after one of the BJP's MLAs claimed that no matter which button is pressed on the EVM, the vote will go to the BJP.
“The most honest man in the BJP”, tweeted Rahul, along with the video of BJP MLA Bakhshish Singh Virk.
“Wherever you vote, we will get to know which person has voted for whom. Don’t think we won’t know. We deliberately don’t tell you, but if we want we can find out who you voted for,” Virk, an MLA from Assandh constituency in Haryana can be heard as saying in Punjabi in the 39-second video, which has gone viral on the social media.
Check out the video shared by Rahul Gandhi below:
Following the video, the Election Commission of India has sent a show cause notice to Virk and appointed a special observer to the constituency to take ‘corrective action’.
Meanwhile, the BJP leader has claimed that the video is fake and tagged it as a conspiracy by other parties against him.
The BJP MLA alleged that some media person has twisted the entire thing. “I respect the Election Commission and have faith in EVMs. I never said anything about the voting machines”, a leading portal quoted Virk as saying.
