Tweeting the video of the incident from the assembly 147 of Hargaon, district Sitapur, the Samajwadi party official handle wrote that BJP MLAs are threatening to kill voters as the party urges election commission to take cognisance of the matter.

However, the whole matter is not yet clear.

Also, another similar complaint was made by Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Sanjay Singh, who in his letter to the Chief Election Commissioner, alleged that the BJP was openly abusing Hindus. The leader also accused the EC of being biased and taking no action against the same. The AAP leader stated that the BJP MLA in question used words like ‘Gaddar’ and ‘Jaichand ki aulad’ which insulted crores of Hindus in the state. The AAP said that such MLAs who abuse Hindus should be banned from contesting the polls.

“BJP MLA said, ‘The blood of Muslim is running in the Hindus who will not vote for the BJP, they are Jaichand’s son. So are Dalits, Backward, Brahmins, Vaishyas, Kshatriyas who do not vote for BJP, are illegitimate children of their parents?’,” the Uttar Pradesh unit of the Aam Aadmi Party wrote in a Koo post while sharing a copy of the letter. “ECI silent abusing Hindus!”, the party added accusing the ECI.

Notably, today on February 23, voting for the fourth phase of the Uttar Pradesh election began with 59 constituencies in 9 districts going to the polls. After this phase, three more phases will be held on February 27, March 3 and March 7. The counting of votes and the declaration of results will take place on March 10.
