A video of the incident was shared by SP chief Akhilesh Yadav on social media, where he criticized the BJP for what he described as a desperate move to undermine a respected leader's reputation. The video captures a confrontation between the police and the SP candidate.

Yadav expressed his disapproval of the police's actions in a social media post, stating, "Police conducted a search at the residence of SP's winning candidate in Ambedkarnagar, Shri Lalji Verma, but found nothing. This unjust act aimed at tarnishing Shri Lalji Verma's integrity is deplorable! It reflects the desperation of the BJP facing defeat."

Akhilesh said that there is information that at the behest of Yogi government, the police team reached the house of party candidate from Ambedkar Nagar Lok Sabha Lalji Verma and has put the candidate under house arrest. In this way, Dalits, backward classes and minorities are being prevented from voting.

Akhilesh Yadav taunted: Shame on EC, for how long will you dance to the tune of BJP. The SP has lodged a complaint with the Election Commission regarding this incident.

Local administration is harassing me: Verma

Verma has alleged that the local administration is harassing him. He declared, "The entire administrative setup in Ambedkarnagar is causing me distress, but the people of Ambedkarnagar will respond with their votes."

Despite the alleged harassment, Verma affirmed his commitment to ensuring that the voices of marginalized communities like the backward classes, Dalits, and minorities are not suppressed. He encouraged SP workers to remain vigilant at the polling stations and expressed gratitude for the community's unwavering support throughout the day.
