हाथ पकड़कर जबरदस्ती पंजा पर धर दिहिन हम देहे जात रहिन कमल पर ( कमल पर देना चाहती थी, जबरदस्ती पंजा पर डलवा दिया)— Chowkidar Vivek Maheshwari (@im_VMaheshwari) May 6, 2019

In the video the lady alleged that she was forcibly made to vote for the Congress while she wanted to vote for the BJP by workers who held her hand and made her press the hand symbol.
She said that the workers did not relent while she continued her objections and ultimately made her vote for Rahul Gandhi.
This matter has been taken up by Smriti Irani who has alerted the election commission over the alleged booth capturing being ensured by Rahul Gandhi’s party men.
