Moradabad (Uttar Pradesh) [India], April 11 (ANI): Ahead of the first phase of elections, Jamat-E-Islami has issued a letter in favor of the grand alliance of SP, BSP, and RLD in the first phase of Lok Sabha elections in Uttar Pradesh.
Speaking about the letter, Rafi Kul Jama, an assistant at Jamat-E-Islami Hind, Uttar Pradesh East, and Uttarakhand said, “We have circulated a letter in which we have issued a guideline about what all candidates are good and voting for them would be better.”
He also said that the letter is falsely being portrayed as an appeal to Muslims and clarified that it is only for the internal cadres of Darul-E-Islam.
"The election is happening at eight seats here. We have asked our cadre to vote for RLD in two seats and SP-BSP in 6 seats," the letter read.
Meanwhile, Darul-Uloom, Deoband has declared that its educational facility will be closed on the day of voting. It has also canceled examinations for the day to allow eligible students to cast their votes in the elections.
