If 90% of Muslims don’t vote for us, we could suffer huge loss’: Another Kamal Nath video surfaces


November 21, 2018


NEW DELHI: The Congress campaign in Madhya Pradesh has been hit by another controversial video in which senior leader Kamal Nath is purportedly heard talking about the importance of Muslim votes for the party in a closed door meeting.

In the video, the senior Congress leader is heard stressing on the need to study the polling percentage in Muslim majority booths in previous elections in Madhya Pradesh and find out why all Muslims don’t come out to cast their votes.

“If at some booths the polling percentage is 60 per cent, we need to find out why was there a dip in voting,” he says adding, “we need not 80 per cent, but 90 per cent of Muslims to come out and vote.”
“If 90 per cent Muslims don’t vote for us, we could suffer a huge loss,” Kamal Nath is heard saying.
Accusing Nath of seeking votes on religious grounds, the BJP urged the Election Commission to take action against him and his party.
A BJP delegation, including Union ministers Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi and S S Ahluwalia besides Rajya Sabha member and party spokesperson Anil Baluni, submitted a memorandum to the commission in which the party also sought action against a news channel over “paid opinion polls”.
Lashing out at Kamal Nath’s “polarising politics”, the BJP said that the real face of the Congress has been exposed.
“Congress is playing divisive politics by categorizing booths on the basis of religion,” BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra said.
This is not the first time that a taped conversation of Kamal Nath has surfaced in the run up to the assembly elections. Earlier, the Congress leader was caught on tape saying that for him the winnability of a candidate was of utmost importance and the number of criminal cases did not matter.
Polling for 231 seats of Madhya Pradesh will be held on November 28.
