The BJP on Tuesday requested the Election Commission to deploy Central security forces at polling booths in the Lok Sabha constituencies considered stronghold of Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav that will go to polls on Thursday.
The BJP has cast doubt on holding free and fair polls in Mainpuri, Kannauj, Firozabad, Etah and Etawah constituencies alleging “a secret pact between the Congress and Samajwadi Party for a strategy to indulge into rigging by disturbing the poll process through violence.”
“We have requested the Election Commission to declare the polling booths in these constituencies as sensitive and deploy Central security forces for free and fair elections,” said BJP vice-president Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi, who led the party delegation to the Election Commission.

The BJP also asked the EC to take action against Union ministers Kapil Sibal and Beni Prasad Verma for “vitiating election campaign by making unsubstantiated personal attacks on Narendra Modi”.
“Yesterday, the way Sibal made allegations in his press conference, it is the violation of the model code of conduct. He made baseless allegations against Modi and Amit Shah. Similarly, Beni Prasad Verma has also violated the model code,” Naqvi said. “It was an attempt to create fear psychosis in the voters’ mind. We have drawn EC’s attention to it and sought strict action against Verma, Sibal and other leaders who have flouted rules,” he added.
The BJP also demanded moratorium on major government appointments. It requested the EC to stop the process to appoint Secretary, Department of Science and Technology as well as DG, CSIR. Earlier, the BJP had demanded halting the appointment of Lokpal and new Army Chief.
