NEW DELHI — During Rampur’s Lok Sabha bypoll in Uttar Pradesh, Muslim voters alleged that they were driven away by the men in uniform when they had gone to polling booth to cast their vote.

In the video the voters are recounting how they were assaulted, thrashed, abused and driven away and showing the injuries on their body parts as a result of the assault.

“Our only crime was that we wanted to discharge our democratic duty,” they said. They saw a “conspiracy” to deprive them of their democratic right.

Meanwhile, the Samajwadi Party (SP) has accused the BJP of sabotaging by-elections in the Rampur and Khatauli Assembly and Mainpuri parliamentary seat in Uttar Pradesh.

The SP also has alleged that its party workers were thrown out of booths, electors were prevented from voting to decrease the polling percentage and EVMs were malfunctioning in several areas.

The party alleged that in a polling booth in the Balpura village in Karhal, BJP agents were preventing Muslim voters from exercising their rights.

The Samajwadi Party in a tweet yesterday alleged mismanagement and partiality by the police deployed on poll duty for the Khatauli bypoll and sought suspension of electoral officer Rakesh Kumar Singh for working as a ‘BJP agent’ and ‘stopping the Muslim voters from casting their vote’.
