NEW DELHI: Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge‘s helicopter was searched by the administration when he landed at the rally venue in Samastipur on Saturday, triggering the party to allege that the Election Commission of India is focusing on opposition leaders to obstruct their campaigning.
The party also alleged that medicines and food for Kharge were destroyed during the search.
Posting videos of Kharge’s landing in Bihar, Congress party spokesperson Rajesh Rathorre said Rahul Gandhi’s helicopter was searched in Kerala and now Kharge was subjected to similar “intrusive” checking in Bihar, while he has not seen the leaders from the governi g camp face such scrutiny during the campaigns.
The Congress president on Saturday addressed back-to-back rallies for the Lok Sabha elections in Samastipur and Muzaffarpur in Bihar.
“The Election Commission should inform the country if it is part of the routine process to search the helicopters of leaders on election campaigns. And if so, then how many BJP leaders’ helicopters, including those of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, home minister Amit Shah, J P Nadda, Rajnath Singh or Bihar BJP leaders, have been searched. Else, it would be assumed that opposition leaders are being targeted through searches,” Rathorre said.
