BJP MLA ने कहा “जो हिंदू BJP को वोट नही देगा उसमें मुसलमान का खून दौड़ रहा है वो जयचंद की औलाद है” तो क्या जो दलित,पिछड़े,ब्राह्मण,वैश्य,क्षत्रिय BJP को वोट नहीं देते वो अपने माँ-बाप की नाजायज़ औलाद है? हिंदुओं को गाली ECI ख़ामोश!

- Aam Aadmi Party- Uttar Pradesh (@AAPUttarPradesh) 23 Feb 2022



Raghvendra is BJP MLA from Domariyaganj, where polling is due in sixth phase of UP polls on March 3. Also incharge of the Hindu Yuva Vahini, was heard in a video saying that Hindus who will not vote for him have “Muslim blood in their veins”

After sparking a row, he said he made the remark five days ago, but added that it was said “in another context, as an example” and that he “had no intention to threaten anybody”.

Poling for the fourth phase is underway at 59 seats of UP on Wednesday. Voting for the remaining three phases will take place on February 27, March 3, and 7. The results will be announced on March 10.
