Cong complains to EC about gang mafia threatening voters in Haryana

Cong complains to EC about gang mafia threatening voters in Haryana

New Delhi, Oct 18 (UNI) The Congress on Friday approached the Election Commission and complained that situation in Haryana is serious as members of certain gangs were roaming around and threatening voters in the state.

"We went to meet the Commission about the situation in Haryana which is very serious. Members of certain gangs are freely roaming around and they are threatening the voters", senior Congress leader Kapil Sibal, who led the party delegation said.

He said the Congress fears that these gangs would stop voters from casting their votes and therefore, they need protection from them.

"We gave the details of the polling booths too. The commission has assured us that they will not allow anything like that to happen and if extra CRPF is needed, they will deploy them", said Mr Sibal.

The Congress leader said the poll body is aware of the situation and they are in contact with the administration and observers.

"The Commission has said they will take all necessary steps to ensure that the election is held free and fair", added Mr Sibal.
