Singh had gone to Malakpur polling booth in Badaut police station area to take stock of the ongoing voting process. As he objected to certain activities at the polling booth, one of those present manhandled him leading to a clash, SP Jitendra Kumar Shahi said.
Meanwhile, BJP spokesperson in Lucknow Vijay Bahadur Pathak alleged that Rashtriya Lok Dal workers indulged in heavy brick-batting which damaged Singh's vehicle.
"Singh continued to ask for security but it was not provided to him. Congress and its alliance partner RLD have carried out the attack out of frustration," he said.
The BJP has also demanded strict action against them. Singh is pitted against RLD chief Ajit Singh in a fierce combat in the constituency.
