Deputy CM Fadnavis said that Dhangekar is doing a political stunt by fasting. (Pune Kasba Peth Bypoll Election)


Reacting to Dhangekar’s allegations, Fadnavis said, “Since campaigning cannot be done after the deadline, Dhangekar is indulging in campaigning by doing such a stunt. When the ground beneath one’s feet starts shaking, then people resort to such gimmicks and this is a violation of the code of conduct of the Election Commission.”


“It is the culture of Congress and NCP to distribute money to voters. It is not BJP’s culture. Our voters don’t take money and vote. Dhangekar has insulted the voters. Dhangekar’s fast is not against BJP but against the voters because he is treating voters like a saleable commodity. This is wrong and God should bestow wisdom to him,” he added.


Meanwhile, BJP city unit Chief Jagdish Mulik has criticised Dhangekar and refuted the allegations.


Mulik said, “MVA candidate Dhangekar, who is known to change parties frequently, is accusing voters in Kasba Peth of accepting money. This is an insult of all voters in Kasba Peth and they will not tolerate it. Dhangekar is trying to gain sympathy by levelling allegations against the BJP’s candidate. He is doing this because he knows that he would lose the election. We would not tolerate such allegations.”


“After the campaign ended at 5 pm on Friday, Dhangekar is levelling false allegations and resorting to stunts and is campaigning indirectly. He is going to sit on a fast. If he does this, then BJP will lodge a complaint with the Election Commission and demand that his candidature should be cancelled. Activists of BJP are going to perform aarti at Shreemant Dagdusheth Halwai Ganpati and Punyeshwar Temple and urge the Lord to bestow wisdom to Dhangekar,” he added.
