On the last day of campaigning for the Delhi elections, the BJP has a pledge of support from the Dera Sacha Sauda, a sect in neighbouring Haryana headed by the controversial Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh.
“We have 20 lakh followers in Delhi, at least 10 lakh voters spread across the 70 Delhi constituencies. We have spread the message across Delhi to support BJP candidates,” said Aman Insaan, secretary of the political wing of the Dera.
“Today’s announcement was made by the political wing of Dera, which has 15 members,” political wing (Delhi unit) vice president Amandeep Insan said.
He claimed that the Dera has about 20 lakh followers in Delhi and they have been told to vote for BJP candidates in tomorrow’s polls.
“Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh is impressed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s initiatives like Swachh Bharat Abhiyan, drive against female foeticide and drugs in the country,” Amandeep told.
