The BJP’s Bhola Singh got a notice from the Election Commission after he was seen campaigning at an election booth in Uttar Pradesh’s Bulandshahr in another video.
Meanwhile, in a shock move a spokeswoman for India’s main opposition Congress party quit on Friday and joined rightwing Hindu nationalist party Shiv Sena, complaining of aggresion towards her by male party members was ignored.
The resignation of Priyanka Chaturvedi, a regular on prime-time TV debates, is an embarrassing setback for Congress in the middle of a general election, and again raises the contentious issue of the treatment of women in India.
“A serious incident and misbehaviour against me by certain party members while I was on official duty for the party has been ignored under the guise of all hands needed for elections,” Chaturvedi wrote in the letter to Congress President Rahul Gandhi, and posted on Twitter.
The next round of voting will be on April 23. Counting of votes will take place on May 23.
