After ‘Modi removed your name from voter list’, AAP allegedly calls up people pretending to be radio channel

Earlier, Aam Aadmi Party 'call centres' had called up Delhi residents and told them that BJP got their names removed from the voter list. EC has filed a police complaint in this regard.

Political parties seem to have newer tricks up their sleeves to mislead voters in the upcoming general elections. On Sunday, Anant Vijay, a Noida-based journalist received a phone call from an unknown number where the caller claimed he was calling on behalf of a radio channel. The caller proceeded to ask him which political party will he vote for in the upcoming elections.

Anant Vijay said that after he told the caller that he will complain about this to the election commission, the caller abruptly disconnected the call.

Another Delhi resident, Nishant Sharma, too received a call from an unknown number with same modus operandi.

Another call from ‘Radio Channel’

Other Twitter users also raised this concern.

Some Twitter users claimed that the caller from ‘radio channel’ then started speaking about Delhi and Aam Aadmi Party.

Others, too, suspected Aam Aadmi Party’s role in this dirty trick.

Truecaller, an app which helps people identify unknown numbers, reflected one of the numbers to be of Aam Aamdi Party.

Aam Aadmi Party’s involvement in such tricks cannot be completely ruled out. As reportedearlier, AAP call centre has been making phone calls to people in Delhi the telling them that BJP has deleted their names from the voter list, and Arvind Kejriwal was restoring their names. Several people have reported receiving such calls, and some of them posted recordings of the calls on social media also.

After people raised objections on the misleading calls they received, the Chief Electoral Officer of Delhi had requested the Delhi police to investigate the phone calls that many people in Delhi have been receiving telling that their name has been struck off 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 Delhi Police had lodged an FIR on February 10.

Following this, the Delhi Police initiated action against Aam Aadmi Party call centres to take “requisite action” against those making ‘misleading’ phone calls to people about Delhi’s electoral roll. As usual, Delhi CM and AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal held Amit Shah responsible for the action initiated by the Delhi Police against the call centres employed by AAP.
