The Chief Electoral Officer of Delhi has asked the Delhi police to investigate the phone calls that many people in Delhi have been receiving phone calls telling that their name has been deleted from the voter list. In a letter written to the Delhi Police Commissioner on February 2, Election Officer Manoj Kumar said that they have various written complaints in this regard, and prima facie it appears that the matter needs to be thoroughly investigated.

The CEO said that it is enclosing the complaint it has received in this regard, and the factual correctness of the complaints need to be ascertained and necessary action under relevant laws should be taken.

After asking Delhi police to probe the same, the Delhi Chief Electoral Officer also issued a press release informing about the same. The CEO says that certain unknown persons or entities are making misleading phone calls to citizens of Delhi saying their name has been deleted from the electoral roll and the caller is trying to restore the same.

The statement also asked people to proactively check their names on the voter list either by calling voter helpline, on the National Voter Service Porta at www.nsvp.in or through SMS. If the name is not found, they should immediately apply in Form 6 either online or offline at their voter centre, the statement adds.

The Aam Aadmi Party had been alleging for some time that BJP has got 30 lakh names deleted from the voter list of Delhi, although Election Commission has denied charges. Recently, AAP has started calling people on their phones telling that their name has been deleted from the Voter list, and Arvind Kejriwal will restore the same. Several people have recorded such calls and posted on social media, which shows that the callers themselves say that they are calling from AAP.

Many people who are voter in other states also have received such calls. While many Delhi voters say that after they received such call, they checked and found that their names exist in the voter list and therefore the phone calls are false.

On February 9 too the Delhi CEO has issued a statement saying that the phone calls people in Delhi as receiving is misleading, and asked the people to beware of such calls.

The statement also asked the voters to check themselves whether their name exists in the voter list through various ways, and to apply for the same if their names are missing. The Election Officer had also informed that separate legal action is being taken against the phone calls.
