Delhi Polls: Dera Sacha Sauda to Support BJP

On the last day of campaign of Delhi Election,Delhi polls have become all the more interesting with Dera Sacha Sauda pledging support to the Bhartiya Janata Party on the last day of campaigning in the national capital.

Dera Sacha Sauda is a sect from neighbouring Haryana headed by Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh – the 47-year-old rockstar guru.“We have 20 lakh followers in Delhi, at least 10 lakh voters spread across the 70 Delhi constituencies. We have spread the message across Delhi to support BJP candidates,” said Aman Insaan, secretary of the political wing of the Dera.

The pledge gives an interesting turn to the poll as Dera, which has a considerable following in the Delhi’s neighbouring states Harayana and Punjab, has over 15 lakh followers in the capital.

Aam Aadmi Party leader Yogendra Yadav tweeted, “Dera Sachcha Sauda extends support to BJP. Now we know why the censor board was unceremoniously packed off in the case of MSG movie”.
