Hyderabad: Union minister of state for home affairs Hansraj Gangaram Ahir on Sunday said false cases may be foisted on BJP candidates to control their movements and asked the party’s legal cell to be on guard.
Mr Ahir said conducting of free and fair elections may be a challenge, as rival contestants were spending crores of rupees on each constituency. He was speaking at a workshop to sensitise legal teams about election-related issues.
The minister said, “We are prepared to win Bangla and Telangana. Our aim is to expand BJP footprints.”
The victory of Akhila Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) at the University of Hyderabad was an early indication that the party was on a winning streak, said Pathak, a former IAS officer who is now heading the election management team at New Delhi.
BJP MP Bandaru Dattatreya said he wanted advocates to be equipped with latest smart phones and collect video evidence about distribution of money and other model code violations. He said each candidate from the Congress and the TRS were ready to spent `10 crore per constituency. Since money could be transferred through electronic channels also, he asked the advocates to gather as much of information as possible to build case against the opponents.
