BJP leader rakes up Burqa controversy, now Kanwar Singh Tanwar alleges fake voting 

Just like the first phase of voting in the Lok Sabha Election 2019 was marred by controversies, the second phase too did not remain untouched. While on April 11, former Union Minister Sanjiv Balyan alleged fake voting by burqa clad voters, BJP candidate Kanwar Singh Tanwar today came up with a similar issue in the second phase. 

BSP candidate from Amroha Lok Sabha seat Kunwar Danish Ali, however, has alleged fake voting in favour of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) by people wearing burqa.

He said that the BJP feared losing the seat and was resorting to unfair means.

BJP MLA Mahendra Singh Khadagvanshi demanded that Muslim women wearing burqa should be made to identify themselves before they vote.

Chief Electoral Officer L. Venkateshwarlu said in Lucknow that there was no truth to the allegations and every voter's identity was being checked before he or she was allowed to vote.
