ANI Photo | “On one hand BJP claims to win 400 seats but on other….”: Danish Ali on cross-voting in Rajya Sabha polls

After the cross-voting in the Rajya Sabha elections, in which the Bharatiya Janata Party won 10 out of 15 seats in three states, Lok Sabha MP Danish Ali on Wednesday that it is happening for the first time in our country that, on one side, the ruling party is saying that they will get 400 seats this time, but on the other hand, they are working to break the opposition parties.
Danish Ali also mentioned that these types of things are not good for democracy and the country’s politics.
“This is happening for the first time in the politics of the country. On one side, the ruling party is saying that they will be at 400, but on the other hand, they are working to break the opposition parties. The ruling party has formed a committee, and these people are responsible for seeing who will do cross-voting and who will break the MLAs of other parties. This is not good for Indian politics or Indian democracy,” he said.
Meanwhile, the Rajya Sabha polls for 15 seats across three states were marked by cross-voting, with the BJP winning 10 seats, the Congress three, and the Samajwadi Party two seats. The BJP was the main gainer, having won an additional seat in Uttar Pradesh and bagging one in Himachal Pradesh.
The biggest surprise came from Himachal Pradesh, where Congress candidate Abhishek Manu Singhvi lost as six MLAs of the ruling Congress cross-voted in the election. The BJP’s Harsh Vardhan emerged victorious, with the result pushing the over-one-year-old Congress government to the brink. BJP leaders said Congress has lost the majority in the assembly but Chief Minister Sukhvinder Singh Sukhu said that the strength can be tested on the floor of the assembly.
The Bharatiya Janata Party won eight seats in the Rajya Sabha polls in Uttar Pradesh and the Samajwadi Party, which had put up three candidates, could win only two seats.
The results in Karnataka were on expected lines with Congress, which is in power in the state, winning three seats and the BJP one. Congress candidates got more votes than the party’s numbers in the assembly. The BJP-JDS candidate Kupendra Reddy lost the elections. BJP MLA ST Somashekar voted in favour of the Congress
