UP Election 2022 JP Nadda targets RLD leader Jayant Chaudhary not voting for first phase of Congress

New Delhi: BJP National Chairman Jagat Prakash Nadda has criticized RLD leader Jayant Chaudhary for not voting in the first phase of the elections in Uttar Pradesh. Voting for the 58 seats in the Uttar Pradesh Assembly took place on Thursday.

Addressing a public meeting in Biswan, Uttar Pradesh, Nadda said: “Today a leader (RLD leader Jayant Chaudhary) did not vote. It shows their dynastic arrogance. Power of democracy gives answers to such people.”

Nadda also targeted the opposition, saying the Indian National Congress was no longer “national” and it was no longer “Indian” either.

“Only the BJP remained a national party, all other parties became parties of dynasties, ‘parivar-vaad’, regionalism… The Indian National Congress did not remain national or Indian, it became a brother-sister party,” Nadda said. .

Earlier in the day, Jayant Chaudhary said it would not be possible for him to vote due to his campaign rally with Samajwadi party leader Akhilesh Yadav in Bijnor. Later, he backtracked and said he would try to vote in Mathura.

“I am a Mathura voter. At the moment we are in Bijnor as there are only two days to campaign between the first and second rounds of UP polls. My wife voted that morning. After the end of the campaign here, I will try to vote at the polling booths open until 6 p.m.,” the RLD leader told ANI.

Nadda also targeted other opposition parties including National Conference, PDP, Lok Dal of Haryana, Samajwadi Party, RJD of Bihar, Trinamool Congress of Mamata Banerjee, Biju Janata Dal, TDP and YSR in Andhra Pradesh, KCR party in Telangana, DMK in Tamil. Nadu, Shiv Sena and NCP in Maharashtra.

Nadda said these parties operated on the basis of casteism and regionalism. “It is only the BJP whose mantra is Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas, Sabka Vishwas and Sabka Prayaas,” he said.

The BJP leader said the party did not seek to vote in the name of caste or religion. “The BJP strives to bring everyone together. Our party continues its work keeping everyone in mind. We are working to bring the bottom echelon of society into the mainstream,” Nadda added.

In Bijnor, SP leader Akhilesh Yadav made a fresh appeal to the election commission amid reports of EVM malfunctions during the first phase of polls in Uttar Pradesh.

Akhilesh tweeted: “There is a call to the Electoral Commission and at the same time it is expected that wherever there are allegations of EVM malfunctioning or deliberate slowing down of the polls, it will immediately take action. appropriate measures in these polling stations”.

He also said that “regular and fair voting” was the greatest obligation of the Election Commission of India. He accused the SSP and Hapur SP of taking away Aadhaar cards from police officers, forcing them to vote for the BJP.
