Varanasi: In a stunning revelation in Indian politics, the Election Commission has so far traced 3,11,057 fake voters who casted their votes in Varanasi in the Lok Sabha election earlier this year. The district administration is expecting the number of fake voters to reach around 6,47,085 by the end of the examination process. It is to tell you that Varanasi is the LS constituency of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who won from the seta with 3,71,784 votes.
The Election Commission was completely shocked to know such a huge number of fake voters which came into light after re-examining the voters list. The officials, who have been given the responsibility of the task, personally visited every voters’ house to see if he was the same one who placed his or her vote in the elections. This process have completed half-way and so far over three-lakh bogus voters have been traced.
Earlier this year, in the Lok Sabha elections, Modi outclassed Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) candidate Arvind Kejriwal by a huge margin of 3,71,784 votes. Congress candidate Ajay Rai (75,614 votes) was at third spot followed by Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) candidate Prakash jaiswal (60,579 votes) and Samajwadi Party’s (SP) Kailash Chaurasiya (48,291) at fourth and fifth spots respectively.
Taking consigns of the matter, the Arvind Kejriwal-led AAP has sharply criticized BJP for this development. However, no comments have been received from BJP so far. AAP has published this post over their Facebook page.
If we go by district administration’s claims, they are expecting to find around 1,12,160 bogus voters in Pindra, 1,01,456 in Ajgara, 87,140 in Shivpur, 84,757 in Rohania, 65,989 in Cantt, and 90,942 in Sewapuri regions.
