Congress' Digvijay Singh posts video, claims BJP's Manoj Tiwari indulged in "bogus voting"

New Delhi: Congress leader Digvijay Singh has accused BJP North East-Delhi candidate Manoj Tiwari of doing "Bogus voting" in the locked doors of a polling booth.

In a post on X, Digvijay Singh posted a video claiming that the BJP MP and North East Delhi candidate was indulging in bogus voting and questioned the reason behind closing the doors of the booth when polling is going on.

"This video is of North East Delhi where Manoj Tiwari is inside with his team under police protection in a Polling Booth when the polling is going on. Apparently doing bogus voting. Main doors were closed while the BJP was murdering democracy. Would the Election Commission please look into it and get a report from the Election Commission Observer and Presiding Officer of this Booth? What was the reason for closing of Polling Booth gates when the polling was going on?" he said.

The video has not been independently verified by the election commission. Notably, BJP's incumbent MP Manoj Tiwari is in the electoral fray against Congress candidate Kanhaiya Kumar in the 2024 Lok Sabha elections.

Manoj Tiwari, secured 53.90 per cent of the votes in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections.

Addressing questions about the challenges posed by opposition bloc INDIA's candidate Kanhaiya Kumar, Tiwari criticized Kumar and said people who abused our national army, wished for terrorists like Afzal to emerge from every house, and celebrated the loss of lives of paramilitary forces can't pose a challenge.

The Congress is contesting the Lok Sabha elections in an alliance with the AAP in Delhi. As part of the seat-sharing arrangement, the Congress is contesting three seats while AAP has fielded candidates from four constituencies in Delhi.

Voting for all the seven seats in Delhi concluded on May 25 in the sixth phase of the Lok Sabha polls.

Meanwhile, Tiwary has been campaigning for the BJP in Bihar and Jharkhand. On Tuesday night he campaigned in Godda for BJP's Nishikant Dubey.
