In the lead-up to Madhya Pradesh Election 2023, Congress raises concerns as it accuses the BJP of defaming party leader Kamal Nath through alleged defamatory posters in Indore. The Madhya Pradesh Congress Secretary, Rakesh Singh Yadav, has filed a complaint with the Election Commission regarding the incident, prompting the removal of the poster by the Municipal Corporation.
Congress Allegations and Election Commission Complaint
According to ANI, Yadav claims that Kailash Vijayvargiya, BJP candidate from Indore-1 assembly seat, and BJP leader Narendra Saluja, expelled from the Congress party, were involved in installing the poster in the Bada Ganpati area of the city. Despite police checkpoints in the area, the poster was allegedly put up around 3 o’clock in the night, leading the Congress leader to call for the deployment of paramilitary forces in the assembly constituency.
BJP Leaders Accused in Poster Controversy
In response, BJP leader Narendra Saluja denies party involvement, asserting that while the content of the poster, linking Kamal Nath to the 1984 anti-Sikh riots, is accurate, neither he nor the BJP were responsible for its installation. Saluja accuses Congress of factionalism and dirty politics, suggesting that disgruntled Congress members may be behind the defamatory posters. The MP Election 2023 intensifies with allegations and counterclaims as both parties gear up for the electoral battle.
