Lok Sabha Elections 2024: Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader and Delhi minister Atishi in a social media post accused Delhi Lieutenant Governor (LG) VK Saxena of ordering Delhi Police to impede voting in areas that have supporters of I.N.D.I.A bloc.

Ahead of the polling for the sixth phase of Lok Sabha elections, in a post on X, Atishi wrote, "Information has been received that today @LtGovDelhi has ordered Delhi Police to slow down the voting in those areas where there are a large number of INDIA alliance voters so that people face difficulty in casting their votes."

"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."

Atishi's post draws a reaction AAP supremo and Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal who raised his concern and said, "This is shocking. EC should ensure smooth voting in Delhi."

Later, responding to the issue Delhi Lieutenant Governor VK Saxena said, "I have taken a stern view of this unwarranted & false statement on the eve of election against a constitutional authority by a Minister, endorsed by you."

"This impropriety is unacceptable and these typically absurd and concocted claims are a deliberate design to subvert democracy by misleading voters. Strict action will be taken," VK Saxena said further in the post. 

All seven Lok Sabha constituencies are undergoing polls on Saturday (May 25). BJP won all seven seats in 2014 and the 2019 general elections.
