BJP writes to EC, alleges opposition's propaganda to mislead commission


The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has dismissed the opposition's claim that law and order situation was not conducive for holding polls in Tripura East Lok Sabha constituency, where the polling was deferred from April 18 to April 23.

BJP spokesperson Dr. Ashok Sinha in a press conference on Saturday said that the party has written to the election commission of India to state that false picture is being portrayed by the Congress and CPI-M with a view to mislead the Commission by attributing false allegations against the BJP.

The party said that no complaints were lodged with the police or the EC after elections were held in one of the two Tripura parliamentary constituencies in the first phase of Lok Sabha polls.
