Congress MP Alleges BJP Leader Had Prior Knowledge of Election Results 48 Hours in Advance

Congress leader Digvijaya Singh has made another accusation of electoral malpractice, claiming that a BJP leader had prior knowledge of the election results. Singh, who had previously alleged EVM hacking, shared two screenshots on social media to support his claim.

The screenshots included a Facebook post and the results page of the Election Commission of India website. Singh pointed out that the Facebook post, made by a user named Anil Chajjed two days before the counting, accurately predicted the number of votes received by each candidate in the Khachrod Assembly seat. The BJP candidate, Dr Tejbahadur Singh Chauhan, defeated the Congress candidate, Dilip Singh Gurjar, by a margin of 15,927 votes.

Anil Chajjed’s Facebook profile describes him as a “digital creator” and has over 5,000 followers. The profile features several photographs of Chajjed with the winning BJP candidate and at the party’s rallies. Singh highlighted the profile’s posts supporting the BJP.

Singh’s latest accusation adds to his previous claim that EVM hacking was responsible for the BJP’s election victories. He has been a vocal opponent of electronic voting machines since 2003, raising concerns about the potential for professional hackers to control Indian democracy.

The BJP has not confirmed or denied if Anil Chajjed is a party functionary. In response to Singh’s allegations, BJP leader Rameshwar Sharma dismissed them, saying that Singh does not trust anyone or even himself.

Singh has called on the Election Commission of India and the Supreme Court to defend Indian democracy against potential hacking threats. He reiterated his opposition to EVMs and questioned whether the country should allow its democracy to be controlled by professional hackers.

As of now, there has been no response from the concerned authorities regarding these allegations.
