New Delhi: The Aam Aadmi Party convener Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday made a sensational allegation against the Bharatiya Janata Party, saying it has directed its MLAs to buy fake votes and delete AAP’s votes in the impending Delhi Assembly elections. He said the party leaders will meet the Election Commission on Monday to lodge a formal complaint.
BJP buying fake votes to defeat AAP, claims Arvind Kejriwal
“Top BJP leader has directed all Delhi BJP MLAs to get at least 5000 fake votes made in each constituency and get AAP votes deleted. Bribe rate is Rs.1500 for new fake vote,Rs.200 to get any vote deleted. This information was given by someone who did this job for BJP last week. We are meeting EC officials on Monday at 11 am and making a formal complaint,” he said on Twitter.
Kejriwal has been on the offensive against the BJP-led central government as he alleged that they were delaying Delhi elections. He had also attacked L-G Najeeb Jung, indicating that he favoured the BJP.
A day after the BJP registered yet another victory in Maharashtra and Haryana, Kejriwal dared BJP to go for elections in Delhi.
“Would BJP now have the courage to go for elections in Delhi?” Kejriwal had said.
The national capital has been without an elected government since February 14 when Kejriwal resigned as Delhi chief minister over lack of support from the Congress and the BJP on the Jan Lokpal Bill.
