Shimla, October 29

Himachal Pradesh Congress Committee (HPCC) president Kuldeep Rathore today said his party had a serious apprehension of booth capturing and large-scale distribution of liquor by the BJP to sway the voters.

Addressing mediapersons here today, he said the Congress had asked its workers to make videos and collect proof as the BJP was desperate to win and can resort to all unfair means. "We apprehend booth capturing in Seraj, the Assembly segment represented by the Chief Minister. So, we urge the Election Commission of India (ECI) to ensure that there is no such illegal activity," Rathore demanded.

He said, "The Chief Minister was seen moving around with a cavalcade in his Assembly segment of Seraj in Mandi yesterday. He also addressed an election meeting, which was a clear violation of model code of conduct," said Rathore. He expressed surprise that despite complaint by the Congress, no action had been taken.

"The officials in the ECI were not available in case we wish to meet them to bring issues to their concern", he alleged. Sharing details of the complaints made by the Congress, he said 111 complaints were filed by the party before the ECI from all over the state. "However, we have not got any response", he said.

He said people would cast their vote on the issue of price rise, unemployment, deteriorating law and order situation and for safeguarding everyone's future. "These bypolls will lay the foundation of the 2022 Assembly polls next year which the Congress will win," he said.

He said BJP candidates are fighting to save their security deposits. "Seeing the response of the voters, the Congress will register victory in all four byelections," he claimed.
