The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has been held responsible by the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) of Delhi for the alleged removal of lakhs of names from the voters’ list.
Deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia blamed the BJP responsible for deleting over 10.5 lakh names from the voters’ list.
“Around 15,000 names have been deleted from each Assembly constituency, thus it makes a total of 10.5 lakh votes. On what ground has the Election Commission deleted these names? After an investigation, it was found that these voters have not shifted to any other place but are staying at the same place,” he said, as quoted by Caravan Daily.
Further attacking the BJP, Sisodia called for the Election Commission to reveal the number of names which are being deleted and also stated that the BJP is doing all these for the fear of defeat.
“The Election Commission should tell about the number of voters whose names are being deleted. Fearing for defeat, the BJP is getting these names deleted. In democracy, right to vote is itself being attacked. The names deleted must be added to the list,” he added.
A convincing victory in February 2015 wherein the AAP won 67 out of the 70 total seats and come to power in the nation’s capital. The BJP won the remaining three seats while there was nothing in store for Congress.
