Bhopal: Kamal Nath, Jyotiraditya Scindia highlight issue of voters list, electricity concessions, viral videos


Bhopal: “The viral videos on the social media are an entertainment for me”, said Member of Parliament (MP) and state Congress president Kamal Nath while jointly addressing the press conference with the MP Jyotiraditya Scindia, on Tuesday.

He further stated that by creating videos against the Congress party BJP is trying to dupe the voters once again, but the voters are wise and they will show the reality to BJP in the elections. He stated the cabinet’s decision on Tuesday to charge only Rs 200 from the poor and to wave off the electricity bills are a fraud on the people and a declaration aimed at appeasement before elections.

“If CM really wanted to provide relief to the people of the state he must have declared it earlier, but now three months are left for the elections and he is showing concern over the electricity bills”, he alleged.
“The CM has made 21,165 declarations which are yet to be completed the declaration of – limited electricity bills and electricity bills waiver will have the same fate,” claimed Scindia.

Nath raised the issue of the fake voters in the state and gave fresh example of Indore where in every ward around 700 fake voters are present which cumulates to 65,000 fake voters in the constituency. Both the leaders thanked the Election Commission of India for taking speedy action on their complaints in connection with the voter’s list irregularities.

Scindia alleged “In the election of 2013 the Congress had lost the election with 35 lakh votes while the total number of voters present in the state was 35 lakh.” “My question to the government is that if the whole machinery is working under it then who is responsible for the fake voters in the list”, he added. He informed that on Wednesday, AICC president Rahul Gandhi would reach Pipaliahat and join the condolence meeting of the six farmers, who were killed in the police firing on June 6, 2017.
