NEW DELHI: Leader of Opposition in Delhi Assembly, Vijender Gupta on Wednesday questioned chief minister Arvind Kejriwal for not taking action against election minister Imran Hussain for misleading on deletion of 30 lakh votes.

Mr Gupta alleged that on the one hand, they (AAP) claim 30 lakh votes have been deleted while at  all-party meetings held at the Election Commission office, members of AAP maintain a studied silence.

Mr Gupta alleged that fearing its defeat in the upcoming Lok Sabha polls, AAP is trying to spread hatred and divert attention from the real issues through its venomous politics of religion and caste.

Mr Gupta pointed that AAP’s claim stands exposed as over 13 lakh names have been added to the voter list, out of which around five lakh votes belong to the Vaish community.

Condemning the stand of AAP, Mr Gupta said that at an all-party meeting on August 31 at Delhi CEC office, two AAP members — Pankaj Gupta and Dilip Pandey — simply kept quiet and didn’t raise any question regarding the deletion of voters from the roll.

“People are aware about the kind of petty politics Mr Kejriwal does. They  will never entertain this kind of caste politics and will give a befitting reply to AAP in the polls,” Mr Gupta added.
