‘Modi has Installed Cameras; No Vote-No Jobs’: BJP MLA Ramesh Katara threatens Voters
BJP MLA from Fatehpura, Ramesh Katara, stoked a controversy, when he threatened the voters by saying that prime minister Narendra Modi has installed cameras at the polling booths and if they want jobs, they should vote for BJP. He was speaking at the election campaign for the BJP candidate from Dahod, Jaswant Sinh Bhabhor, on Tuesday.
Katara said, “You’ll see the photo of Jaswant Sinh Bhabhor and lotus symbol on the EVM, look for that and press the button. There should not be any room for error as Modi sa’ab has installed cameras this time.” Katara further added, “Who voted for the BJP, who for the Congress, it can be seen.
Aadhaar Card and all cards have your photo now, if there are fewer votes from your booth then he will come to know who did not cast vote and then you will not get jobs.” Opposition parties have reacted sharply to Katara’s threat. The RJD, led by Lalu Prasad Yadav, tweeted, “Helpless, voiceless citizens are intimidated into voting for them. Such issues will have an impact.”…
