UP Governor Ram Naik economictimes
Naik made the charge in his memoir, Chaireveti, Chaireveti (Keep Moving), written in Marathi and released in Mumbai on April 25.
The BJP leader mentioned that despite being three-time MP and having contributed so much to Mumbai, he was unable to digest his defeat by a margin of 11,000 votes.
Govinda, however, refuted the charges and said people ensured his victory.
“I did not need anyone’s support at that time. By saying such things, does Ram Naik mean that the people of the constituency were sold into the hands of the underworld? Please do not insult anyone by saying such things,” Govinda said.
Naik mentioned that a TV channel campaigned against him during the polls.
