Rajya Sabha poll result: Sanjay Raut says Election Commission favoured BJP

Highlights

  • Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut on Saturday alleged that EC favored BJP.
  • He was referring to the recently announced Rajya Sabha poll results.
  • The counting of votes had come to a small halt after the election authorities received complaints.

Rajya Sabha election result: Reacting to Election Commission (EC)'s move on the rejection of vote cast by Sena MLA Suhas Kande, Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut on Saturday alleged that EC favored BJP.  Clearing his stance, Raut said, "Election Commission made our one vote invalid. We objected to two votes but no action was taken on that. Election Commission favoured them (BJP)."

While Congress leader Imran Pratapgarhi declared his victory and also confirmed the tally for the remaining candidates. "I have won as well as Shiv Sena's Sanjay Raut and NCP's Praful Patel. I thank the MLAs. We are sad that the fourth candidate of (Maha Vikas Aghadi) Sanjay Pawar could not win," said Pratapgarhi.

The counting of votes came to a small halt after the election authorities received complaints and counter complaints in Maharashtra and Haryana.

Earlier, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Friday alleged a violation of the poll code by three MLAs of the ruling Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) in the Rajya Sabha elections in Maharashtra and urged the Returning Officer to hold their votes invalid.

The BJP demanded that the votes of NCP leader Jitendra Awhad, Congress leader Yashomati Thakur and Shiv Sena's Suhas Kande be declared invalid. Out of 6 seats in Maharashtra, BJP won 3 seats. Shiv Sena, Congress, and NCP won one seat each. Shiv Sena's Sanjay Pawar lost the election.
