BJP’s Badaun candidate Sanghmitra Maurya on camera caught encouraging her supporters to indulge in ‘fake’ voting.
A video which has gone viral on social media, Maurya is seen addressing party workers at an election meeting and asking them to cast votes of those who are not present on the polling day.

She while addressing a rally said, not a single vote should go in vain. It is common everywhere that fake vote is cast. If you get a chance, take advantage of it. First, try to take the real voters to cast their votes, but if they are absentees then do it.
District Magistrate Dinesh Kumar Singh, when contacted, said he was not aware of the matter but would look into the claims.
Still Am not surprised bt ashamed how people clapping for her
