Emphasising on the role played by ‘cash’ in the Rajya Sabha elections, Janata Dal (United) MP Sharad Yadav on Saturday said many moneybags are contesting in this poll as both the BJP and the Congress Party have fielded cash-rich candidates.
“In this poll, many moneybags are standing. Both the BJP and the Congress Party have fielded moneyed candidates. Though there is nothing new in this, as this has been practised since long, but now it has reached to its pinnacle.”
Maintaining that the solution to this problem lies with people only, Yadav said, “The people will treat this problem by way of their mandate. The Election Commission or law does not have a solution to this chronic problem.”
It’s the last day before elections for 57 Rajya Sabha seats in 15 states and with a contest in at least six states, political parties are in a last minute scramble to ensure they get their numbers right.
As many as 57 Rajya Sabha seats in 15 states go to polls on Friday.
