The mysterious phone calls to the voters of Delhi, alleged to be the strategy of the Aam Aadmi Party, seems to have not even left the senior functionaries of the BJP as senior BJP leader Vijay Goel has now received a similar call stating that his party has ‘removed his name’ from the voters’ list.
According to reports, Union Minister Vijay Goel on Thursday claimed that he received a phone call alleging that his own party, the BJP, had got his name deleted from the electoral rolls and it is Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, who has restored Goel’s name back into the list.
The senior BJP leader, a former president of the Delhi unit of the party has now moved the Chief Electoral Office to lodge a complaint against the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and its convener Arvind Kejriwal. The Minister said that he received a call five days ago, where a person informed him that the BJP has deleted his name from the electoral list but Delhi Chief Minister Kejriwal has added his name back into the list.
There have been several such allegations directly pointing against Aam Aadmi Party for calling voters to inform that their names had been deleted and Arvind Kejriwal had gotten their names back to the list.
A twitter user @akash15 had released a telephonic conversation on social media where the caller can be heard telling him that he is from the Aam Aadmi Party and he called to inform him that his name had been removed by the BJP from Delhi’s electoral rolls. He added that Arvind Kejriwal had gotten hold of the list of the names removed after a lot of difficulties contacting the Election Commission and that he will call him again later for updates on the matter.
Following this incident, the Chief Electoral Officer of Delhi had asked the Delhi police to probe these incidents. 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 Aam Aadmi Party, after being rejected by the Congress for an alliance in Haryana, Delhi, and Punjab, has been desperate and is allegedly indulging in such acts to create a false impression against the BJP, which had won all the seven seats from Delhi in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections.
