Deputy CM Vijay Sharma countered on former CM's statement of holding elections through ballot, said – EVM is fine if government is formed with bumper seats of Congress.

Raipur. BJP has announced its candidates for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections. Now all the candidates are filing nominations from their respective Lok Sabha seats. There is BJP's Namankal rally in Bastar today. The statement of Chhattisgarh Deputy Chief Minister Vijay Sharma has come out regarding this. He also took a dig at former CM Bhupesh Baghel's viral tweet about elections being conducted through ballot paper. Deputy CM said that EVM is being praised all over the world. When the government is formed with bumper seats of Congress then EVM is fine.

Regarding the nomination rally in Bastar, Deputy CM Vijay Sharma said that today is the beginning of victory. There is a nomination rally today for the lotus symbol of our candidate from Bastar. Last time we had missed the Bastar Lok Sabha seat. This nomination rally will be the flag of our victory. He said, Congress has fielded leaders from Durg on 4 seats. Such was the situation in the Congress government also, it was called the government of the fort. Now Congress has fielded leaders from the same place from different seats. Local people should get an opportunity to contest elections. No person should think that he will conquer everyone by making his people fight. Political party is big, everyone should get opportunity.

On Congress's complaint regarding politics over religion in the Election Commission, Vijay Sharma said, it is not understood that if the saffron flag is insulted in Kawardha then it is nothing. Why insult and take timely action, if this much is said then BJP is doing politics on the basis of religion. If someone is murdered in Biranpur then it is nothing, but if it is said why was the murder done? If the MLA does not come from the murderer, then BJP becomes the one doing politics on religion.

He said that this tradition has to be understood. Religion is in every vein of ours and in every vein of the entire India. It is wrong to say that politics is based on religion. When Mohammad Akbar won by 60 thousand votes in the last assembly elections, was he not a Muslim and the people there were not Hindus? It was not religious then, but now when we lost, it became religious. This is a strange thing.

Former CM Bhupesh Baghel's viral tweet – If there are more than 375 candidates then elections will be held through ballot paper, but Vijay Sharma said that EVM is being praised all over the world. When the Election Commission says to hack the EVMs, no one comes, if the government is formed with the bumper seats of Congress, then the EVMs are fine. When one has to contest elections, the EVM gets damaged, the public should not be misled by such double standards.
