Bahujan Samaj calls upon MGP to snap ties with BJP

PANJIM: United Bahujan Samaj (UBS) and its members have demanded that Maharashtrawadi Gomantak Party (MGP) break its alliance with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and contest the 2017 elections on its own strength.

“If MGP doesn’t break ties with the BJP, no person from the Bahujan Samaj community will vote and support the MGP in the upcoming elections,” UBS spokesperson Santosh Mandrekar said. He added that the BJP government has failed to deliver on its manifesto promises and the people of Goa have given up hopes and are ready to vote the BJP out of power.
Mandrekar also suggested that the Election Commission implement a new voting system, as there is tampering of EVMs taking place. He suggested a new system called EVM with ballot paper.
He said UBS will be present a memorandum to the Chief Minster, Election Commission of India, Governor of Goa and Chief Secretary demanding that this new system for conducting accurate elections be adopted.
