Senior AAP leader Atishi and Raghav Chadha on Tuesday alleged over harassment of their call center staff hired by it to inform Delhiites about the electoral roll was being harassed by the Delhi police.

AAP leader Atishi said the party had started a campaign to inform Delhiites that their names had been struck off the rolls by calling them, for which it had hired a call center.

However, The Election Commission had asked Delhi Police to take "necessary action" against those making "misleading" phone calls to people about the city's electoral rolls, following which an FIR was registered.

Atishi, in a series of tweets, lashed out at Delhi Police and the BJP.

"BJP got more than 30 lakh votes deleted in Delhi and when Aam Aadmi Party started talking about this issue in the media the Election Commission removed this list from their website!," she said in a tweet.

"The BJP is now worried that their strategy is being exposed! So they are now using Delhi Police to intimidate the call centers that have been hired by Aam Aadmi Party to inform voters about voter deletion.

"Call centers hired by Aam Aadmi Party are being harassed and intimidated by Delhi Police; they are being called every day to the Crime Branch for questioning. They are now being taken for questioning to police headquarters," she alleged.

A senior police official said they are probing the matter and are questioning the call center employees to ascertain the nature of calls allegedly made by them to voters.

"The people who fund AAP are being harassed by authorities and they are being probed because they support AAP. The agency which AAP uses for ensuring fair elections is being harassed too. This is because BJP is scared about it," Mr. Chadha said.
