Two Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leaders have been caught on camera threatening voters to vote for them or face the consequences. The two BJP leaders are - Union minister Maneka Gandhi and BJP MP Sakshi Maharaj. While Maneka Gandhi was seen threatening a group of Muslims, Sakshi Maharaj warned people in Unnao.

While speaking at a rally in Sultanpur, Maneka Gandhi said she will not be ‘inclined’ to offer jobs to Muslims if they don’t vote for her. “I am going to win for sure. If Muslims won’t vote for me and then come to ask for work, I will have to think, what’s the use of giving them jobs?” she is seen saying in a 3-minute video clip that is going viral.

She goes on to add, “You will need me, and I will have booth-wise details (of how many votes I got).”

Earlier, the Union minister had landed in a similar controversy when she described BSP chief Mayawati as a “merchant of tickets” and alleged that she does not give her party tickets to anyone without taking money.

Meanwhile, BJP leader Sakshi Maharaj took it one step further and warned voters that they would be cursed by him if they did not vote in his favour.

“I am a sanyasi (monk), if you make me win, I will win; otherwise (I) will do bhajan and kirtan in temple; but today I am here to seek your votes. I am here to beg at your door, if you refuse a sanyasi, I would take away the happiness of your family and will curse you,” he said.
