The NCP claims that BJP National President Amit Shah has canceled his election rallies in Chandrapur and Gadchiroli districts of Maharashtra on Sunday, as people didn’t turn up for the public meetings.
BJP MP Ashok Nete and Union Minister Hansraj Ahir are seeking for re-election as BJP candidates from Gadchiroli-Chimur, and Chandrapur Lok Sabha seats respectively, which will go to elections in the first round on April 11.
With hashtag “#23MayBJP Gone”, Nawab Malik tweeted: “Amit Shah’s two public meetings in Gadchiroli and Chandrapur were canceled. The airplane is an excuse, the real reason is people had not turned up.”
A BJP spokesman of Maharashtra, Keshav Upadhye said that the BJP Chief’s rallies were canceled “due to technical reasons only”.
“Unlike the NCP’s public meetings, BJP’s rallies always receive a big response,” added Mr. Shah.
2019 Lok Sabha Election in Maharashtra to contest from 48-seats will be held in four rounds on April 11, April 18, April 23, and April 29. The results will be declared on May 23.
