New Delhi: The BJP on Sunday demanded the resignation of chief minister Arvind Kejriwal after Delhi’s Chief Electoral Officer (CEC) issued a press statement asking the police to intervene over misleading the Delhi citizens over their names being deleted from the voters’ list.

BJP MP and Union minister Vijay Goel, quoting the press release by Delhi’s CEC, tweeted, “@ArvindKejriwal must resign after the press release of @CeodelhiOffice requesting the Commissioner of Delhi Police to investigate the matter of misleading call to the citizens of Delhi that their names have been deleted.”

Attacking the Election Commission, Kejriwal pointed out how the poll body was converted by the BJP into one of its party offices.

He wrote, “Ur ECs shud resign for converting EC into BJP office. Shameful Modi ji has subverted every institution. We will not allow BJP to succeed in its conspiracies. Police are yours, EC are yours. Don’t get them to do such dirty works. This country is bigger than an individual or a party.”

Kejriwal claimed that a list of 24 lakh deleted names was given to his party by the Election Commission. A furious Kejriwal also added that his government had found some deletions wrong on inquiry.

Kejriwal's tweet read, “EC gave AAP list of 24 lakh names deleted in Del.

1. Del govt enqries in some deletions found them wrong?Why EC protecting those officers?

2. Why EC not allowing Del govt to do enquiries in all deletions? EC itself didn’t conduct enquiries. AAP won’t allow telengana it in Del.”

On Sunday, Delhi’s CEC asked the Delhi police commissioner to intervene and take action. He took a strong view of AAP workers allegedly phoning potential voters to inform them about the deletion of their names from the voters’ list.
