Bangalore: Assembly elections are going to be held in Karnataka next April or May.
In this case, Belagavi BJP MLA Ramesh Jargikoli while speaking at a meeting of BJP executives said, “BJP must win this election. For this, we can provide Rs. 6,000 per vote,” he said. The audio related to this has been released in the media and has caused controversy. Congress, Majadat and Aam Aadmi Party have strongly condemned this.
In this case, Karnataka Congress President TK Shivakumar, Leader of Opposition Siddaramaiah and others filed a complaint at the Bengaluru High Grounds Police Station yesterday. It says:
BJP has planned to give Rs 6 thousand per vote for BJP to win the elections. The audio of the party’s Ramesh Jarkiholi has been released.
BJP is planning to rig elections by paying voters illegally. In this regard, Ramesh Jarkiholi, Basavaraj Pomi, Nalinkumar Katil, JP Natta and others should be investigated. This is stated in the complaint.
