Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) earlier opposition party blamed the ruling party for fraud in the election. At Muktsar Prakash Singh Badal the former CM Punjab said that several Congress workers were getting indulged into booth capturing such crime. As well as blamed the police to be “mute spectators”.
He also added, “Booth capturing is taking place and as an MLA I will not tolerate this in my area. Police were not performing its duty. What kind of elections were these, where booths were captured and nomination papers of Akalis rejected,”
The clashes incidents between Akali workers and Congress workers were reported from Lodhi Gujjar in Ajnala, Jhoke Harihar in Ferozepur, Rajasansi in Amritsar, and Sohia Kalan in Majitha.
The clash resulted in the minor injuries to a few one due to pelting stones and using sticks weapons at each other.
Akali leader Sikander Singh Maluka blamed Congress workers for capturing booth at Kangar, Bhai Rupa, and Salabatpura, in his Bathinda speech.
As result, Akali workers under the leadership of Maluka hampered Bhagta Bathinda Road for sake of registering protest against the Indian National Congress government, the ruling party of Punjab.
On Tuesday, a bunch of opposition parties expressed their fear about “large-scale booth capturing”. Opposition parties claimed that Indian National Congress government was interested in winning the panchayat samitis and Zila Parishad “by hook or by crook”.
Opposite of this, the ruling party is cheering up winning the polls after 10 years gap. This all polling contest was between Congress and BJP-SAD alliance mainly.
