EC’s inspection of deleted voters’ names a farce: AAP

New Delhi, Nov 18 (IANS) The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Sunday slammed the Election Commission for its conduct towards checking deleted names from electoral rolls by calling the inspection a “farce and a complete joke to the people of Delhi”.

“The whole exercise of checking whether the deleted voters’ names was factually correct or not was turned into a complete joke by the Election Commission officers,” AAP national spokesperson Raghav Chadha told the media here.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had approached the poll panel after AAP’s South Delhi Lok Sabha in-charge Raghav Chadha claimed that about one lakh voters’ names have been dropped from the South Delhi parliamentary constituency alone at the behest of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

The EC had agreed to inspect two areas — Lal Kuan and Tughlakabad — by sending its officers there with a list of deleted voters’ names.

Chadha, on Sunday, said even though the EC has set up 11 teams for the inspection and took three days for the process, “it (EC) had a completely different list of voters as compared to the list on its official website”.

“Now, this matter is not just bound by any political party. This can have grave consequences for the democracy of Delhi,” Chadha asserted.

“We want a complete, accurate, and comprehensive list of deleted voters after 2015 assembly elections,” he added.
