Ahead of Lok Sabha elections, heated words were exchanged between ruling Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and Bhartya Janata Party (BJP) on the deletion and addition of voters’ name by the Delhi Election Commission (EC).
Talking about allegations on the EC by AAP convener, Arvind Kejriwal, Tiwari said that Kejriwal is running a factory of lies.
“Delhi BJP will complain to the Police Commissioner and Election Commission and demand registration of a criminal case against Arvind Kejriwal for misleading the people and speaking lies and stern action be taken,” Tiwari said.
“By staging Dharna before the EC office on Friday, AAP leaders including Kejriwal have once again proved that they donot respect any constitution institutions. “ In last 70 years, EC of India has established its impartial image and officials of Election Commission have been deputed in many countries through the United Nations,” said Tiwari.
Delhi BJP Vice President Rajiv Babbar said that the Election Commission has also made it clear that Election Commission neither deletes nor adds names on the basis of caste or community.
In a related development, a Delhi court Friday summoned Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and others in a defamation case filed by BJP leader Rajeev Babbar. Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Samar Vishal directed Kejriwal and other accused to appear on April 30.
Babbar has sought proceeding against Kejriwal, Rajya Sabha member Sushil Kumar Gupta, MLA Manoj Kumar and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) spokesperson Atishi Malena for harming the reputation of BJP by blaming it for the deletion of the names of “voters” from the electoral rolls in Delhi.
