Punjab minister and Akali candidate Bikram Singh Majithia and Congress nominee Sukhjinder Raj Singh Lalli Majithia today had heated exchange of words after the former raised objection over allegedly bringing vehicles inside the polling station. The state Revenue Minister apparently asked the Congress candidate to take his vehicles out of the polling booth.

“Do not break the rules,” a visibly charged Majithia told his opponent.

“Take the vehicles out. Nobody will break the law here. You (Sukhjinder Raj Singh Lalli) are a candidate. You do not know the rules. How could you do that (bring the vehicles inside)? How could you influence (voters)? Take these vehicles out,” he asked Lalli.

The Congress candidate retorted, “Do not try to vitiate the atmosphere.” He then asked his driver to take the vehicles out.

An agitated Lalli also took a jibe at the Akali candidate.

“Do not cry when you are losing (elections),” he said.
