Observers to be deployed in all such constituencies

BHOPAL: Bharatiya Janata Party has prepared a special strategy in Lok Sabha elections for the seats where Congress won assembly elections with a significant margin.

As part of its strategy, an observer would be deputed on each of these seats by the BJP who will monitor election campaigning in the whole assembly area to ensure that Congress is not able to garner more votes from these seats.
