Kiran Bedi has two voter ID cards

New Delhi (IANS): BJP’s chief ministerial candidate in Delhi assembly polls Kiran Bedi has two voter identity cards from separate addresses here, according to the Election Commission records.

A scrutiny of the electoral rolls on the website of Delhi’s Chief Electoral Officer showed that Bedi has voter ID cards from two addresses — 2 Kothi, near Talkatora Stadium, Talkatora Lane, and 56, Uday Park.

The Talkatora Lane address bears the voter ID card number SJE0047969, while the Uday Park address bears the card number TZD1656909.

An EC official said the matter was being investigated and it would take necessary action after ascertaining whether Bedi had filed a request to cancel one of the cards.

Meanwhile, a Bharatiya Janata Party leader said it was for the poll panel to sort out the matter.

“Maybe, there is some confusion or mis-communication but it is for the EC to look into the matter,” said the leader.

Despite several attempts, Bedi was not available for comment.

Bedi filed her nomination papers for the Feb 7 Delhi assembly polls from the Krishna Nagar constituency.
