Awaiting report on Ajit Pawar's alleged threat: EC
The Election Commission Saturday said it was looking into reports that Maharshtra Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar threatened voters in Baramati Lok Sabha constituency.
Chief Election Commissioner V.S.Sampath said a report was awaited in the matter.
"We heard about it. We are awaiting a report in the matter," he said at a news conference when asked about Ajit Pawar's alleged threat.
The Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader had reportedly threatened to deprive a village of water if it didn't vote for his cousin Supriya Sule, the daughter of NCP chief Sharad Pawar. The alleged threat was made on Wednesday night on the eve of the polling.
A purported video of Ajit Pawar addressing a gathering in Masalwadi village was cited in a complaint filed by Suresh Khopde, a former police officer and Aam Admi Party (AAP) candidate from Baramati.
