AAP to move EC against Pawar over his voting remark
Condemning Union Agriculture Minister and NCP chief Sharad Pawar’s statement asking his party workers to “vote twice” in upcoming polls, the Aam Aadmi Party on Sunday said it would write to the Election Commission recommending strict action against the politician.
“Aam Admi Party will write to the Election Commission and ask them to take strict action against Pawar and his party NCP,” a statement issued by Maharashtra unit of AAP said.
“Such brazen calls to indulge in corrupting our democratic processes must not go unpunished,” said the statement signed by Preety Menon-Sharma, state unit secretary.
The statement further said AAP volunteers will keep a vigil this time in every single polling booth across Maharashtra to prevent “bogus voting” and will report to EC if it detects any such cases.
“We encourage all citizens to stay alert and make prompt complaints to the EC helpline,” the statement said.
