He asks his cadre to study the Muslim booths and their past records. He also tells his cadre to ensure that voting percentage at those booth increases. “My request to you is that you analyse past records… How much voting in Muslim booths, and if there was 50-60 per cent voting, then why 60 per cent – why not 90 per cent? This post-mortem is very important,” Kamal Nath says in the video which is followed by an applause.
“If we don’t get 90 per cent votes of the Muslims, then we will be at a big loss. You are talking about 80 (per cent). I am talking about 90… You know where there are Muslim votes, how much voting took place there? If there was less than 60 per cent voting, then why? It must have been a big reason,” says Kamal Nath.
Earlier, Yogi Adityanath had also said that Congress President Rahul Gandhi does not know how to sit in Mandir. He had alleged that during one of the temple visit, a temple priest had to tell Rahul Gandhi that he shouldn’t sit on knees.
