BJP state spokesperson Madhav Bhandari has alleged that the Congress party had sought the help of Naxalites to win the election. Addressing media persons on Thursday, Bhandari pointed out that emissaries of Congress leader Digvijay Singh had sought the help of Naxalites to win elections in certain constituencies.
Bhandari demanded that the Election Commission take note of this and take action. He also alleged that Naxalism had increased in the country due to the support the movement was receiving from the Congress. Whenever, the BJP had tried to crackdown on Naxalism, the Congress along with human rights and Leftist organisations had opposed it, he alleged.
According to Bhandari, home minister RR Patil and police officials in the state had information about the connections between the Congress and the Naxalites. "Patil should answer as to why he has not taken action even after getting such information," said Bhandari.
"There is a wave in support of Modi, therefore Congress leader Rahul Gandhi is making desperate attempts to counter it and become the prime minister," Bhandari added.
