The Samajwadi Party on Saturday accused the Uttar Pradesh police of "breaking into" the house of their candidate, Lalji Verma, in Ambedkarnagar by jumping over the wall and placing him under arrest as voting was underway in the constituency.

Sharing the video of the incident on X, SP chief  Akhilesh Yadav, targeted the BJP and described this action as a sign of its desperation in the face of defeat, claiming that they are trying to tarnish the image of an honest leader. The video shows an argument between the police and the SP candidate.

In a post on his X, Yadav criticised the police action, stating, "Police raided the house of SP's winning Ambedkarnagar candidate Shri Lalji Verma, but found nothing. This is a heinous act to tarnish Shri Lalji Verma's honest image. It is highly condemnable! This is the desperation of the losing BJP." 

The SP has filed a complaint with the Election Commission in this matter

Meanwhile, Verma has accused the administration of harassing him. He said, "The entire administrative machinery of Ambedkarnagar is harassing me, and the people of Ambedkarnagar will respond with their votes." Verma asserted that despite any harassment, he will not let the voices of the backward classes, Dalits, and minorities be suppressed. He urged SP workers to remain steadfast at the polling booths and expressed heartfelt gratitude for the widespread support from the community since morning.

The sixth phase of polling for Lok Sabha polls on May 25 across 58 parliamentary constituencies spread over six states and two Union Territories (UTs) saw a voter turnout of 39.13 per cent till 1 pm, the Election Commission (ECI) said on Saturday.

The Lok Sabha elections will be completed on June 1 after the seventh phase of polls in which voters from 57 constituencies will exercise their franchise. The results will be declared on June 4.
