Allegations have been made against Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) supporters who have been accused of booth capturing at a polling station at Pating, a remote location in the Kurung Kumey district of Arunachal Pradesh, according to reports.
A video, reportedly, from Pating, alleged that the BJP supporters tried to stop villagers from casting their votes at the simultaneous Assembly and Lok Sabha polls.
Pating falls under 1-Arunachal West Lok Sabha constituency and 19-Nyapin Assembly constituency.
In the video where the citizens are seen to be involved in a heated argument leading to a scuffle that breaks out by the end of the video, one person present at the polling stations alleged that he was not allowed to enter the polling station as a polling agent despite having all the requisite documents.
“Only BJP party members are sitting as polling agents; even for the Congress party. Our voters are not being allowed to enter the polling station,” the person alleged.
