Transparent polling not possible without Central Security forces: Congress

The Congress today in a statement said it is not at all possible for fair polling in the Panchayat elections without the deployment of Central Security forces when there are very high chances of booth capturing in sensitive areas.

Congress's spokesperson Siddharth Priya Srivastava here said there are many insensitive booths in the entire state and for that the Center provides security on the demand of the state election commission, but Union Government's denial of the forces seems like they have made an alliance with the Samajwadi Party and in this case, fair polling seems to be impossible.

The spokesperson added that, murder, use of money and booth capturing may also affect the ensuing Panchayat elections and if these things happen then Uttar Pradesh government will be responsible for it.
