BJP corners BSP over rape accused candidate

New Delhi: With the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) under fire after its Ayodhya candidate was booked for rape, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) cornered the Mayawati-led dispensation asserting that the party would clearly go to any lengths to win the Uttar Pradesh Assembly Elections, including taking the aid of goons and corrupt people.

“The only agenda of BSP and SP is to get seats with the help of goons and due to that they gave tickets to people with criminal records one after the other. Their only motive is to win the election, they don’t care about the method they have to use for attaining their agenda,” BJP leader Siddharth Nath Singh told ANI.

Singh further stated said that both Samajwadi Party and BSP are filled with people with criminal records like Gaytri Prajapati, Atiq Ahmed, Ansari brothers and now they have Siddiqui adding that both the parties have nothing to do with the development of Uttar Pradesh.

He further asserted that BJP is the only party dedicated to work for the development of the state.

Earlier this morning, after a case of gang-rape was registered against him, Bazmi Siddiqui accused the Opposition of trying to frame false cases against him to hurt the party’s chances in the Uttar Pradesh polls.

A case of gang-rape and robbery was registered against Siddiqui, who is contesting from Ayodhya and seven other accused here.

“Seeing the huge lead of the BSP in the Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections, our opponents are frustrated and are trying to frame me in false cases,” Siddiqui told ANI.

A similar case was filed against him earlier, but no evidence was found to prove the charges.

“She is the same woman who had filed a case against me earlier, now she has filed another case. Earlier also police probed the matter and didn’t find any proof against me. This time also they are not going to get any evidence,” Siddiqui said, while claiming that he was in Lucknow from past two days, when the incident is said to have taken place.

Meanwhile, the Assistance Superintendent of Police, Vikrant Vir said that a case of molestation and robbery have been registered against eight people and an investigation has also been launched into the matter. (ANI)
