Tejaswi Surya said, 80% are BJP supporters, but only 20% are voting.

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP Tejasvi Surya on 26 April appealed to party supporters to come out and vote, saying “every single vote of yours counts”.

He said that 80 percent of the voters are BJP supporters, but only 20 percent of them cast their vote. He said, the remaining 20 per cent voters are Congress supporters, but they are coming out and voting 80 per cent.

“We are 80 per cent voters of BJP, but only 20 per cent come out and vote. Congress voters are 20 percent but they come out and vote 80 percent. In most of the cases, this is the ground reality of the polling stations. Every one of your votes matters. Please come out and vote because if you are not voting, 20 per cent of the Congress is definitely voting,” Surya said.

The 33-year-old politician, who is seeking re-election from the Bengaluru South seat, further said, “Be it heat or rain, it is your vote that will decide the future of the country for the next five years.”

Surya is contesting against Congress candidate Sowmya Reddy, who is the daughter of Karnataka Transport Minister Ramalinga Reddy.
Meanwhile, a case was registered against the BJP MP for allegedly posting a video on social media platforms and seeking votes on the basis of religion.
