BJP’s Amit Malviya Leaks Karnataka Polls Date Before EC

BJP IT cell’s Chief Amit Malviya - Sakshi Post

The election commission is seeing red over the leak of the Karnataka election dates before its official announcement. The goof-up was done by none other than the BJP IT cell's Chief Amit Malviya who tweeted about it even before the EC could announce it.
