BJP trying to come to power by cutting Purvanchali voters' name: CM
NEW DELHI: Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal continued his attack on the BJP-led Center over the alleged deletion of voters names of the Purvanchalis. "BJP is trying to come to power this time again by cutting the names of Purvanchalis," he said. On Saturday, in a Twitter exchange with BJP MP and Union Minister Vijay Goel, who like CM Kejriwal is from the Bania community, the AAP Chief said that four lakh out of eight lakh Bania voters had been struck off the rolls.
With the AAP accusing the BJP of having voters from the Bania, Poorvanchali and Muslim communities deleted from the rolls ahead of the Lok Sabha elections, Goel took to Twitter on Saturday to say that the Delhi's Banias were upset because the AAP thought they were 'fools'.
Delhi Chief Minister has kept his focus on the issue of voter deletion and on the development of unauthorised colonies. Earlier on Thursday, CM Arvind Kejriwal said that he would 'transform' unauthorised colonies in Delhi so that they would resemble neighbourhoods in London and Paris. He was speaking at an event seeking support for the AAP in the upcoming
Lok Sabha polls.
