Lok Sabha election phase 6: Day before Delhi decides, AAP accuses LG of poll interference | India News

NEW DELHI: A day before all 7 Lok Sabha seats of Delhi go to the polls, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Friday levelled serious allegations against Lieutenant Governor VK Saxena, stating that he has ordered police to slow down voting in areas that have a large number of INDIA bloc supporters.

“Information has been received that today the Delhi LG has ordered the Delhi Police to slow down the voting in areas where there are a large number of INDIA alliance voters,” the AAP leader said on X.
“Any such attempt by the administration to make the BJP win is illegal, undemocratic and unconstitutional. And I hope the Election Commission will take cognizance of this, and stop any such attempt,” she added.
Reacting to Atishi’s post, chief minister Arvind Kejriwal said: “This is shocking. EC should ensure smooth voting in Delhi.”

The Lieutenant Governor’s office has not yet responded to the accusations.
