Holding the BJD responsible for violence at the Panchayat election, the BJP General Secretary and spokesperson Lekhashree Samantsinghar said, “Both the phases of the elections were marred by violence. Rampant cases of booth rigging, booth capturing, destroying ballot boxes, tearing the ballot paper have been witnessed. The BJP workers and voters were beaten and threatened. We have met the DGP and informed him of all the violent activities of BJD, which the BJP is using to win the election because they have completely lost the support of the people of Odisha.” (ANI)
