MP BJP to take action for improper voting in Prez polls
Guna, MP, July 28 (UNI) The procedure for taking action against BJP legislators in Madhya Pradesh, who did not cast votes as per fixed parameters during recently-held presidential elections, has started.
Senior BJP leader and former chief minister Kailash Joshi said 11 votes were rejected as invalid because some legislators did not cast their votes as per procedure. Some legislators had even written 'Jai Sri Ram' on the ballots.
He said efforts were being made to find out the details. A list had been sought from the Election Commission so that erring legislators could be identified and action taken against them.
Mr Joshi refused to comment on reasons for the loss of party in the assembly by-election to the Shivpuri constituency, but said review process was underway.
Praising the BJP Government in the state, he said a lot of development work was going on in rural areas. The Centre was supporting the state government fully.
He said 'Vikas Yatras' would start in August and September.
