Rajya Sabha Polls: BJP files complaint against Rashid

“We have filed a written complaint before the Election Commission of India against Rashid for openly declaring that he will vote for Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad.

The Bharatiya Janta Party (BJP) Saturday said it has filed a complaint against MLA Langate Abdul Rashid Sheikh before the Election Commission (EC) for making public announcement on the floor of house about his vote.

Talking to KNS, BJP senior leader Shamshir Singh Manhas said; “We have filed a written complaint before the Election Commission of India against Rashid for openly declaring that he will vote for Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad.”

“This is totally unethical and against the electoral practices. No member can disclose to whom he is voting for on the floor of the house. So we appeal election commission of India to take strong note of it and cancel his vote,” he said.

Pertinent to mention that during polls for 4 Rajya Sabha seats, Rashid Saturday openly said that he has cast his vote in favor of Azad.
