“We have understood and brought it to the notice of the public, that having a majority in the assembly, BJP can’t go against wishes of the public and kill democracy,” Mardolkar said.
Adv. Mardolkar said that as elections are near, BJP will try to manipulate things and divide people in order to garner votes. “Hence we will have to convince people that they don’t fall prey to the political techniques of BJP,” he concluded.
