Former BJP Rajya Sabha MP Kripal Parmar is contesting as an independent in the Fatehpur assembly seat of Himachal Pradesh’s Kangra district, rebelling against the party. On the basis of a viral video, it is being claimed that Prime Minister Narendra Modi himself has pressurized him to withdraw from the electoral fray by calling him.
Shimla: Less than a week is left for the voting for the Himachal Pradesh Assembly elections. Meanwhile, former Rajya Sabha MP Kripal Parmar, who is rebelling against the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and contesting as an independent from Fatehpur seat in Kangra district of the state, has claimed that he himself was called by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and asked him to withdraw from the election. A video in this regard has also gone viral.
It is worth noting that the BJP had recently expelled five rebels, including Parmar, from the party for six years.
In a video viral on social media and shared by various media outlets, it can be seen that Kripal Parmar is purportedly talking to Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the phone.
In this 1 minute 3 second video, Parmar is seen saying, ‘Modi ji should say one thing…’
On which a voice comes from the other side, ‘I will not say anything, I will not listen to anything… I have the right to you… I will not listen to anything…’
On this Parmar laughs and says, ‘The right is mine too… my…’ But, biting his words, a voice comes from the other side, ‘I have the right on you, it will not work… my grace cannot do this…’
On this, Parmar complains to BJP National President JP Nadda that for 15 years Nadda has harassed him.
To this, Modi allegedly says, ‘Listen to Kripal… if you have any role in your life, I have called today, don’t underestimate the price of this phone.’
To which Parmar says, ‘No less sir, for me this is God’s order.’
On this, Parmar was assured from the other side saying that ‘the rest of the responsibility is mine’.
To which Parmar says, ‘Modi ji, this would have happened two days ago…’
After this the phone is disconnected from the other side.
After this video surfaced, the opposition Congress has targeted the BJP.
The National President of the Indian Youth Congress, Srinivas Biwi, has also targeted the Election Commission by tweeting the above video. Tagging the commission, he has asked, ‘Dear Election Commission, are you alive?’
