Bengaluru: The BJP on Thursday October 20 accused the Congress of rigging its Presidential polls to make Mallikarjun Kharge win so that he can be remote controlled by the Gandhi family.
The saffron party, which has been attacking Kharge even before he was elected the grand-old party’s President, is now terming him to be a rubber stamp.
Questioning Congress’ entire Presidential poll process, BJP IT cell media National Head Amit Malviya on Thursday accused the the grand-old party of rigging the polls and making Kharge emerge winner.
Taking to Twitter, Malivya posted: “The Congress President election was rigged with such precision that Mallikarjun Kharge got 88% of the votes, just short of the 90% mark, which could have given Tharoor the option to trigger a formal complaint alleging malpractice. He was denied that manoeuvre too.”
After the poll results were out, Congress leader Shashi Tharoor congratulated Kharge but during counting of votes polled, Tharoor camp had alleged of rigging.
It is evident from the statements of the BJP leaders that they will time and again flag the issue that the “Congress has repeated its UPA government’s formula of Manmohan Singh on Kharge.”
