BJP uses money and muscle for Rajya Sabha win
Spokesperson: Shri R.P.N. Singh: He said we have seen results of the Rajya Sabha elections coming in today. It is shocking the kind of money and muscle power that the BJP Government has used to try and win these elections. The Prime Minister, who says I swear by the Constitution but that very Constitution is being subverted to win elections. In reality he has tried to throttle democracy. He talks about corruption-free India, the kind of money they have tried to use in order to defeat the Congress candidates, is extremely shocking and disturbing for the country which stands for democratic values.
Results have come in from some states. All Congress candidates have either won or many missed victory by a whisper. We would like to take this opportunity to thank all Congress MLAs and all regional parties who have supported the Congress candidates. I would like to reiterate that this Modi Government is trying to throttle democracy exactly in the same manner that they did in Uttarakhand. What they did in Arunachal Pradesh.
