EC to conduct impartial probe on AAP's plaints against police: Dy CM
NEW DELHI: Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia on Friday after a meeting of nearly four hours with the officials of the Election Commission said that the EC would itself conduct an independent and impartial probe on the complaints of AAP against the Delhi police over the alleged harassments of the call centre employees. These call centres were hired by the AAP to inform people whose names were deleted from the voter list.
"I am grateful to the EC as they have decided to do an independent probe on our complaints by an impartial officer," Sisodia tweeted.
Deputy CM after meeting the EC for the second time said, that a joint meeting was held with the CEO Delhi and Delhi Police where the party raised their issues and also the police admitted raids. He also said that the police claimed that these were not raids. "We have urged the EC to immediately stop the raids," he said.
Delhi CM and AAP national convenor Arvind Kejriwal also questioned the CEC. "Why is CEC raiding our call centres and asking for our data? What is our crime? Pl tell our crime at least," he said in a tweet.
Kejriwal also urged all party MLAs to join the protest outside the Election Commission. "Police has raided without any search warrant and is barging into server rooms and interrogating all call centre agents. What is going on? What is the crime?" he tweeted. "We need an answer. What is our fault that we are being raided," he said in another tweet. Sisodia was joined by other party members, including Lok Sabha candidates Atishi, Raghav Chadha and senior leader Sanjay Singh.
However, Delhi Police rejected all the claims saying, "We have registered an FIR following complaints regarding the bogus calls about the Delhi's electoral rolls and its investigations are underway."
