A delegation of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leaders including state BJP chief Vikram Usendi and former minister Birjmohan Agarwal submitted a letter to the Chhattisgarh Chief electoral officer. The delegation asked for an immediate investigation by the probe agency into the ambush by the Maoists on the bulletproof vehicle carrying the BJP lawmaker, Bhima Mandavi and four other security personnel.

The BJP leader Raman Singh alleged that Congress has targeted the BJP lawmaker along with the Naxals and “politically conspired” the attack.

The attack took place two days before the commencement of the first phase of the Lok Sabha elections. The attack killed the five people in the vehicle instantly on Tuesday. BJP has asked the Election Commission to take control of the security in Chattisgarh.

The party has urged the Election Commission to make extensive security arrangements in the Maoists-infested Bastar Lok Sabha constituency for the polling on April 11.

The party also accused the opposition Congress to be involved with the Naxals and motivate the attack. The letter said that the attack was a “political conspiracy” that the agencies should probe into.

Former Chief Minister, Raman Singh accused the Congress government in the constituency for being lethargic in providing the security to public representatives. The minister also accused Congress government of targeting the lone BJP MLA in the region.

Claiming that the Bastar has become a safe haven for the ultras, BJP leader Singh said that he was told during his election campaign that Naxals were saying their rule had come to the region.

Previously, Maoists have asked the people to not cast their votes in the elections. The local police instructed the BJP lawmaker to refrain from the campaigning in the area due to the lack of security, but the minister wanted to spread the message to the public.
