He went on to claim that the YSR Congress Party’s victory in 22 MP seats and 151 MLA seats in Andhra Pradesh in 2019 was only possible through “election fraud” with the support of the two BJP leaders.
Mr Mohan expressed doubts about holding the elections to the West Bengal and Assam assemblies in eight and five phases, respectively, but with a single phase in Tamil Nadu and Kerala, claiming that the BJP leaders had the same strategy again in the northern states repeatedly, fearing a router. “Also in the by-election of Tirupati Lok Sabha, the YSRCP, with the support of Mr. Modi and Mr. Shah, installed thousands of outsiders in seven assembly segments. The ruling party had bribed the election officials, police and volunteers, ”Mohan said.
The CWC member said he would expose the BJP’s “electoral fraud”.
