In Rajasthan’s Kota, 48 hours before the region goes to polling, some political activists in Kutha Basti area of the town were found circulating fake forms of Congress’ ‘NYAY’ Yojana, causing a stir in the city. Private information was sought in the form and the people were asked to submit the form on E-Mitr to register themselves for receiving Rs 72,000. The BJP has officially lodged a complaint regarding this to the Election Commission.

As the fourth phase of the Lok Sabha elections is underway, fake forms of Congress’s ‘NYAY’ Yojana have been reportedly distributed among villagers with the aim of luring them into voting for Congress. The form seeks personal information of the voters to register them for being eligible to receive Rs 72,000 yearly.

Twitter user @yash1m, who is a part of the BJP’s IT Cell according to his Twitter profile posted a video of the incident as well.

As can be seen in the above video, many villagers, especially gullible women from the rural areas were given forms of ‘NYAY Yojana which had the election symbol of Congress as well as Congress president Rahul Gandhi’s photo printed on it. Only when they approached the local government office to submit their forms, they realised that the forms distributed to them were fake and were meant to deceive them.

As a part of election gimmick, Rahul Gandhi had declared that if Congress forms a government at the centre, they will implement the NYAY Yojana, aimed at eliminating poverty. He asserted that 5 crore families or 25 crore people who benefit from the scheme.

However, the specifics of the scheme are yet not clear as Congress president Rahul Gandhi and his battery of advisors are not on the same page regarding the funding of such a grand dole scheme. Many senior economists have even raised questions on the feasibility of the scheme.

While his mentor Sam Pitroda had said that middle-class will have to bear the additional burden for funding this scheme, Rahul Gandhi, on the other hand, had claimed that the scheme will be financed from the money recovered from the defaulters, which actually belong to depositors. Even the Allahabad High Court had sent a notice to the Election Commission asking whether the scheme can be termed as an electoral bribe to the voters.
