Massive blow to Congress, G K Venkatesh Congress Corporator arrested in Voter ID scam in Bangalore!

Yesterday in a shocking news it was found that over 9000 voter IDs were found in one of the Congress rented houses in Bangalore which belonged to people of a slum area. The fraud was exposed by BJP and few JDS workers who suspected something unusual activity in one of the Congress workers house. When they informed the Election Commission about the activity, the EC along with police raided the house where they found more than 9000 voter IDs belonging to people.

This incident shocked the entire state and exposed the cruel intention of the Congress. The preliminary investigations revealed that the house was rented to a person called Rekha, who happens to be a Congress worker. She occupied the house just a month before elections without agreement.

The EC which verified the voter cards found that they were not duplicate but original cards which were collected before the elections from different slum areas. These cards were collected using agents for every area and the information was used to financially exploit the poor people promising them of returning the voter ID if they only vote for their party.

What should be noted here is, the voter IDs were kept in separate stakes based on the specific doles and freebies to be given. The stacks also had names of those agents who collected them. Most of these agents are now absconding and police have issued lookout notice.

The most striking evidence was Business cards of Congress candidate Muniratna, water bottles with Congress logo and pamphlets of Congress which were found in the flat.  After the EC found that the voter IDs were collected by Congress agents with the support of Congress, the EC is said to have arrested Corporator Venkatesh and one Congress worker called Nataraj from RR constituency.

This has come as a major blow to Congress and Rahul Gandhi who is currently campaigning in Bangalore. Instead of making false accusations of others, Rahul Gandhi should first come and answer how did 9000 voter IDs got into the house rented by Congress person?? Who are those people who collected the voter IDs? Why were there Congress business cards and gift items with Congress logo found in the house?? Will Rahul Gandhi answer all this?

It is unfortunate that the Congress has taken the entire elections process for a ride with their criminal acts. The Election Commission has to take most stringent action against these crooks who are destroying democracy and ban them from contesting future elections.
