New Delhi: The Congress has accused the BJP of being a racist party, and called for the resignation of the government’s top leadership, following an election result in which the BJP won over an estimated 20 million votes.
The party accused the government of rigging the results and said the “most egregious” violation was that the party won an election without consulting the people.
In the first phase of the election, the Congress accused the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) of using the electoral process as a “black swan” to give the BJP a decisive mandate.
The BJP, on the other hand, has accused Rahul Gandhi, the party’s national president, of being in collusion with the Congress and the “BJP-led government” to cheat the people of the state.
The Congress said it would take up the issue of electoral fraud with the Election Commission and “prove” that the election results were falsified.
The ruling Bharatiyah Janata party has denied any collusion with BJP.
The two parties had fought a bitter election, which saw the BJP winning seats in the Lok Sabha, which is India’s parliament.
The election saw a huge increase in the BJP’s vote share and the party had won more than 50 percent of the total vote in the state of Punjab.
The BJP was able to win more than 200 of the 243 seats in parliament.
However, the ruling Congress party accused both the parties of rigging election results.
The Supreme Court on Thursday called for a probe into the allegations and called on the party leadership to resign.
