A day before the fifth and the final phase of voting in the Bihar state elections, the Bharatiya Janata party has come up with a tactic to make the most out of the final day of elections. The saffron party has used the cow and the controversies surrounding it to woo the voters just before the final day.
It was reported that the BJP political party has issued an advertisement in the first page of all the newspapers of Bihar, questioning Bihar Chief Minister’s stands over the controversial beef consumption row. The advertisement comes with a tagline of ‘No reply No vote’.
The advertisement questioned Nitish Kumar’s silence over the beef row. It said that the CM repeatedly insulted the cow,revered by the people of India. “Nitish should stop the vote bank politics and should immediately clarify his stands over beef consumption”.
Meanwhile, the State election commission of Bihar has come out hard on the political parties by imposing restrictions over the political parties from publishing any advertisements without its permission on the final day of voting. This was the first time in the history of Indian elections, that a state Election commission has imposed restrictions over the newspaper advertisements of the political parties.
The moves comes in the wake of the Chief Minister Nitish Kumar Yadav lodging an official complaint with the Election commission over the political advertisement issued by the BJP on November 5th, the FirstPost reported.
The counting of the Bihar election results is scheduled to take place on Sunday.
