The BJP and the Aam Aadmi Party clashed again over the recently-released electoral roll. While the former alleged 'mass' deletion of names to favour the BJP, the latter hit back, saying the list exposed the 'lies' of the AAP and its chief Arvind Kejriwal.

The AAP accused its rival of being involved in 'mass deletion' of names of voters of specific communities fearing defeat in the coming Lok Sabha election. "There is a decrease of about 1.2 lakh voters since January, 2018. This clearly vindicates the AAP's claim that the BJP has orchestrated and engineered the biggest ever voter deletion fraud against the people of Delhi," said party spokesperson and South Delhi Lok Sabha seat in-charge Raghav Chadha. "The BJP is 'completely rattled' sensing a 'humiliating defeat' in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections, he alleged.

Meanwhile, BJP's Delhi unit president Manoj Tiwari asked Kejriwal to stop 'politics of falsehood' and face the next election on the basis of his government's achievements. "The people will decide whether he is fit to be re-elected even after betraying the aam janata. It is a slap on the face of AAP and its leaders who have been claiming 30 lakh voters' names have been deleted," he said.

The office of Delhi Chief Electoral officer (CEO) on Friday said the voters in national capital increased by 7.78 per cent in 2019 as compared to the last Lok Sabha polls in 2014.

However, there has been a decrease of 0.87 per cent votes as compared to the last final electoral roll, which was released on January 10, 2018.

The AAP, on the other hand, has demanded that the Election Commission publicly address how there has been a net decrease in the electoral rolls despite an increase in population of persons eligible to be voters.

The AAP has been alleging that names of around 30 lakhs voters particularly Purvanchalis, Muslims and those from trader community have been deleted from the electoral roll since the 2015 assembly elections in Delhi.
