Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh
The Election Commission has censured Madhya Pradesh Minister Yashodhara Raje Scindia for violating model code of conduct ahead of the upcoming bypolls in the state.
The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader had on February 17 issued an indirect warning to the people, saying that Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana was BJP’s scheme and will not be provided to those who vote for the Congress.
Why didn’t the gas scheme come to you people? It is because this is BJP’s scheme. You will vote for Congress, you won’t be provided with the scheme. If you vote for BJP, it will be provided to you” (“Chulhe ki yojana, kyun nahi aayi aapke paas? ye kamal ki yojana hai. Aap panje mein vote doge, aapke paas aaegi nahi. Aap kamal ko doge, aapke paas aaegi. Seedhi baat hai) she said in Shivpuri district.
She went on to say that it is people’s fault which is why they are not being provided with the scheme.
“If you vote for Congress, why will we give it to them? Why will we give you gas through the hands of Congress? We will not give you. With your sensibility you should vote for a party, which will provide you with schemes that will reach your home.” (Aap agar panje ko vote doge toh hum panje ko kyun denge? Hum panje ke haath se kyun denge aapko chulha? Nahi denge. Aaapko apni samajhdaari se aisi party ko vote dena hai jiski har cheez aapke gharon mein aa jaaye) she added.
Voting for assembly by-poll in Kolaras of Shivpuri district will be conducted on Saturday. The counting of votes would take place on February 28.
