EC sends a letter to the Police Commissioner Of Delhi: What seems to be a scam is now a hashtag on twitter #KejriwalMakingFakeCalls

February 11, 2019 —

CM Arvind Kejriwal & Aam Aadmi Party has been hit by yet another scam. Many people are calling it a marketing gimmick in the election time. This time it’s not about any rigged Electronic Voting Machines(EVMs). Also, it is not about any criminal conspiracy or corruption scandal that Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal wants to bust.

Since the onset of the election time in India, a large number of people in Delhi have been receiving scam calls. The callers claim to be a member of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP). Further, they are telling people that their names have been deleted from the voter list by the BJP. They also go out to say that the total no. of deleted names totals to around 30 lakh. The concerned authorities are investigating the matter.
