Loss in by-elections has prompted Congress to seek ballot voting

Covai Post Network


Coimbatore : Losing deposits in the recent by-elections in Uttar Pradesh and Bihar, has prompted the Congress into demanding to bring in ballot sheets back for future elections, Tamil Nadu BJP President, Tamilisai Sounderarajan said today.

Replying to a specific question on the resolution by Congress, Tamilisai told reporters at the City Airport that it was not practically possible to go back to ballot sheet, which amounted to the Country going backwards.

Stating that the loss of deposits and defeat in the recent by-polls had prompted the Congress to put forward such a demand, she said that it was disrespecting the people who had cast their votes in a democratic way.

On proposed no-confident motion against the Centre, Tamilisai said that since BJP has its own majority, it will not not impact the Government.

When asked about the charges by dismissed AIADMK spokesperson, K C Palanisamy that AIADMK was a puppet in the hands of BJP, she said that this types of allegations were hurled at BJP from time and again.

“Can any one say that M K Stalin is taking the decision for Congress party,” she asked and said ” each and every party is capable to taking its own decision and BJP is not interfering in its matters.”

On Cauvery Management Board, she said that the Centre was following the directive of the Supreme Court in this regard and the Board will be definitely constituted and the State unit will exert pressure on it.

Countering the allegations that the Centre was neglecting by notallocating funds to Southern States, Tamilisai said that it was baseless and necessary funds were allocated to all States.
