The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has demanded the cancellation of the candidature of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) candidate, Dhirendra Kumar, from the Election Commission for concealing information in his poll affidavit.
According to the BJP, there are criminal cases registered against Kumar which he failed to disclose in his poll affidavit. Kumar is contesting from East Delhi's Kalyanpuri corporation ward for the upcoming by-elections in five municipal wards in the national capital slated for February 28.
BJP MLA Abhay Verma said the AAP candidate has tried to cheat the people by hiding information about his criminal cases and the conviction related to these cases in his election affidavit.
Verma has demanded action in this matter by giving a written complaint to the election officer and the police station of the area.
