Meanwhile, Vasanth Kumar, Advocate and BJP legal cell Convenor said that five complaints were lodged with the Election Commission today.
“Today 5 complaints were lodged with the Election Commission. One is canvassing and speaking to workers by CM Siddaramaiah inside a polling booth in Mysuru…another complaint is, in a polling booth in Kolar constituency, one ex-councillor Venkatesh is distributing cash to voters, another complaint is AICC Youth President Srinivas is protesting…today is polling day so he is violating Model Code of Conduct,” Vasanth Kumar said.
Surya cast his vote in Bengaluru and predicted that the Congress party may not win more than 30 seats in the Lok Sabha polls.
Speaking to the news agency ANI on Friday, Surya said, “I want to tell the BJP supporters and voters that we are 80%, but on the polling day we come out and vote 20%, whereas the Congress supporters are 20% and they come out and vote 80%. Each BJP voter must come out and vote because our vote matters. If you are not voting, Congress’ 20% is coming out and voting. No matter the heat, or the rain, it is your vote that will decide the future of the nation for the next five years. Please come out and vote.”
