Voters Getting Remunerated To Select NOTA In Assembly Bypoll: Shiv Sena

On Tuesday, Uddhav Balasaheb Thackeray’s party Shiv Sena proclaimed that voters were getting disbursed to pick the NOTA options in the most recent Andheri East Assembly byelection, which will take place on November 3. The byelection campaigning halted at 5 pm. The party has introduced this concern to the Election Commission and the police; stated the Member of the Maharashtra Legislative Council and chief leader Anil Parab. 

Parab stated, “The election will have ramifications in the coming Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) election too, as for the first time it will see the combined strength of Maha Vikas Aghadi allies (Thackeray-led Sena, NCP, and Congress). Moreover, “Some people are being paid money to choose NOTA,” the ex-Maharashtra minister claimed and added further.

He further stated that his party has video clips that demonstrate alleged RPI workers implicated in such misdeeds. The RPI is associated with the BJP-ruled National Democratic Alliance.

The Uddhav Thackeray-ruled Sena group has appointed Rutuja Latke, the wife of holder Sena MLA Ramesh Latke, whose demise mandated the election. The BJP designated Murji Patel. However, he discontinued his candidacy after the party chose not to compete.

“On one hand, the BJP withdrew its candidate saying it respects the tradition of not fielding a candidate against family members of deceased lawmakers. On the other, people are being asked to cast their vote for NOTA,” Parab stated. He believed that Latke would attain 98-99 % of votes and stated she would finalize the works which weren’t finished because of her husband’s demise.
