The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Monday filed a case against Delhi chief minister and Aam Aadmi Party’s national convenor Arvind Kejriwal's wife Sunita Kejriwal for allegedly keeping two voter cards. The case has been filed by Delhi BJP spokesperson Harish Khurana at Tis Hazari Court. 

In his complaint, Khurana alleged that Sunita Kejriwal has two voter IDs, one from Sahibabad (Ghaziabad) and one from Civil Lines (Chandni Chowk).

The BJP leader accused Sunita Kejriwal of deliberately and intentionally maintaining her name in the electoral roll at two different places to help his husband's party.

"She (Sunita) being an IRS officer, well educated and involved in electoral politics directly or indirectly is well acquainted with the procedure of maintaining electoral roll.  However, in complete disregard to the electoral process and norms and in order to wrongfully give advantage to the Aam Aadmi Party in which her husband is the national convener, the accused deliberately and intentionally is maintaining her name in the electoral roll at two different places," reads the complaint.

Earlier, AAP candidate from the East Delhi Lok Sabha constituency Atishi had filed a complaint against cricketer-turned-politician Gautam Gambhir for allegedly enrolling as a voter in more than one constituency in violation the Representation of the People Act (RPA). Gambhir is fighting against Atishi from the East Delhi Lok Sabha constituency.

She had also raised objection over the nomination papers filed by the former cricketer which were rejected by the returning officer of the polls.

Hitting back at the AAP, Gambhir asserted that he possessed only one voter identity card, adding that the ruling party in Delhi was making baseless allegations against him as it did not have any vision for the people.
