A 25-year-old man in Uttar Pradesh on Thursday allegedly cut off his finger because he accidentally voted for the Bharatiya Janata Party instead of the Bahujan Samaj Party, the Hindustan Times reported.
The man identified as Pawan Kumar, 25, is a resident of Abdullapur Hulasan village in Shikarpur area and he is said to have used a sickle to chop off his finger. In Bulandshahr, the contest is between the sitting MP and BJP candidate Bhola Singh and SP-BSP-RLD alliance candidate Yogesh Verma. The man later released a video to regret his mistake and since then it is going viral on social media.
As per the media reports, Kumar had gone to vote with an intention to vote in favour of the SP-BSP-RLD alliance candidate Yogesh Verma but instead, he voted for the sitting MP and BJP candidate Bhola Singh by mistake. Frustrated by this blunder he chopped off his finger. Kumar was rushed to a hospital but was soon discharged after his treatment.

To get publicity another way of spreading negativity. Let him say, what is wrong with BJP. Members are pious Nationalist Indians. BJP mantra is devolopment of all citizens, not that Netas and their family only get devolopment. Opposition need people to remain ignorant/poor
