Delhi polling: AAP and Lieutenant Governor engage in a heated exchange; what Atishi, Kejriwal and VK Saxena said?

In the lead-up to the voting in Delhi, a contentious exchange unfolded between Delhi Lieutenant Governor VK Saxena and Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal along with other leaders of the ruling Aam Aadmi Party.

Both parties exchanged criticisms regarding the preparations for the upcoming voting on Saturday for seven Lok Sabha seats.

At 9.47 pm, Atishi, a minister in the Aam Aadmi Party government, claimed on X, "It has been learned that today the Lieutenant Governor of Delhi has ordered the Delhi Police to slow down voting in areas where India Alliance voters are in large numbers so that people do face hardship in voting."

Atishi raised concerns about any potential efforts by the administration to favor the BJP, labeling it as illegal, undemocratic, and unconstitutional. She expressed optimism that the Election Commission would address these issues.

Kejriwal tweeted expressing shock 

Responding to Atishi's statement, CM Arvind Kejriwal tweeted, expressing shock and calling for the Election Commission to ensure a trouble-free voting experience in Delhi.

The debate continued late into the night, with Delhi's Lieutenant Governor VK Saxena responding to the accusations.

He criticized Kejriwal, stating, "You seem to have developed a habit, Kejriwal Saheb, of constantly lamenting your circumstances!"

Lieutenant Governor VK Saxena dismissed the claims as baseless and nonsensical. He denounced them as a deliberate attempt to undermine democracy by misleading voters and warned of strict consequences for such actions.
