By on December 3, 2013


Aam Aadmi Party has installed 2,000 high resolution spy cameras places in slums and jhuggis to stop rivals of buying votes through distribution of cash and liquor. The recordings would then be submitted to the EC and a complaint will be filed. AAP has already filed five complaints to the EC. In two cases cash was distributed, and the rest were related to alcohol.

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has now released a video of how in violation of the Election Commission guidelines, alcohol is being distributed in Delhi by rival parties. The AAP has uploaded a video which was shot at Ambedkar Tikona Park in Badli Gaon and says the liquor bottles visible in the video were meant for distribution among voters by other political parties.

The video is titled ‘Delhi elections: Liquor distribution by other parties caught by AAP volunteers’.
The video says the footage was taken at a cold drink shop in Badli Gaon in Ambedkar Tikona Park, and shows this message: “A suspicious looking van was unloading mysterious bags after which public demanded to inspect the bags. Upon inspection, alcohol was found in every bag. A house right behind the cool drink shop was found to have several such bags. The registration number of the van can be found in this video”.

The AAP claimed that it got first success with the endeavor as locals and party volunteers in the Badli village assembly constituency caught some people red-handed allegedly distributing liquor bottles at night. “We will neither buy votes using money or liquor, not will we allow others to do so,” Kejriwal said.

Aam Aadmi Party has deployed its specially trained volunteers and also educated the voters not to fall prey to such tactics. The AAP volunteers would keep a strict vigil in these areas from 5 PM onwards today till early in the morning.

Arvind Kejriwal tweeted “On 2 Oct 2012, when party’s formation was announced, we had said that next election will not be an ordinary election it will be a movement, it will be a revolution. Delhi Assembly election has already turned into a people’s movement. This time, people themselves are fighting elections people r taking off from their work, kids are talking about it in their class. This is an election of every such individual, who wants a corruption free India. Pl do go out and vote tomorrow and take your neighbors along. Let’s all unite to make India better. May Lord bless India.”

Approx. 1.19 crore voters are eligible to exercise their vote on Wednesday. There are 810 candidates in the 70-member assembly constituency. BJP has fielded candidates in 66 seats and Congress and AAP in all 70 constituencies. The Cicero Associates survey showed that the Arvind Kejriwal-led party will win 48-50 seats out of the total 70 seats, followed by BJP with 11-17 and the Congress with 8-14 seats.
