BJP Writes to ED, Says Horse Trading Possible in RS Polls

The BJP (Bharatiya Janata Party) on Tuesday wrote to the ED (Enforcement Directorate) and the Rajasthan chief electoral officer, expressing apprehensions of horse-trading and the usage of black money in the coming Rajya Sabha elections which are going to be held on June 10. The leader of the Opposition party in the state assembly, Gulab Chand Kataria, Deputy leader of the opposition, state BJP president Satish Poonia, and party whip Jogeshwar Garg accused the Congress party of misusing government machinery to intimidate their MLAs.

The ruling Congress party has shifted its MLAs to a hotel alleging poaching attempts by the Bharatiya Janata Party.

The BJP leaders claimed that there are chances of giving temptations to the MLAs. They also expressed apprehension that there could be black money in the Udaipur hotel and demanded action on corrupt practices to ensure fair polls.

Earlier in the day, Congress leader Mahesh Joshi gave a letter to the Chief Electoral Officer demanding action on horse-trading attempts but did not name any party or person in the complaint.

Elections to four Rajya Sabha seats from the Rajasthan state will take place on June 10. The Congress has fielded three candidates, whereas BJP one, and media baron Subhash Chandra is contesting as an independent candidate, who is backed by the BJP.
