AAP's South Delhi candidate Raghav Chadha accused BJP workers of casting "bogus votes" in Sangam Vihar constituency during the sixth phase of the Lok Sabha elections in the city on Sunday.
"We allege that in Aruna Asaf Ali school booth in Tughlaqabad extension under Sangam Vihar legislative assembly constituency in South Delhi parliamentary constituency, there is widespread bogus voting being employed by BJP," said Mr Chadha.
"There is one person who was caught by us voting continuously in the booth. People want to get rid of Ramesh Bidhuri as they are fed up of his abusive behaviour. Due to this factor, BJP is employing unfair means but we would not allow this to continue. The person who was engaged in bogus voting has been caught and the police inspector employed at the booth who was lax in carrying out his duty has been removed from here," he added.

Raghav Chadha is contesting from South Delhi constituency against BJP candidate Ramesh Bidhuri.
