MCD Polls 2022: DPCC chief Anil Chaudhary returns without casting vote, his name missing in the list

The Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) elections are underway in the city. The tough fight is between the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), and Congress. Voting is taking place across 250 wards. Over 1,300 candidates are in the fray. The Delhi Pradesh Congress Committee (DPCC) Anil Chaudhary, who went to cast his vote at a polling booth in Dallupura, East Delhi, had to return without casting his mandate as his name was missing in the voter’s list.

The DPCC chief said, “My name does not appear on either the voter or the deleted list. My wife cast her vote. Officials are investigating it”.

He tweeted, “Make certain you are not voting for those who have polluted the air, water, city, society, or politics! Vote to turn filthy Delhi into Shining Delhi.”

Earlier, Anil Chaudhary who has been visiting various polling booths in the city urged the people in the city to vote to ‘make a corruption-free, drug-free, pollution-free, garbage-free, debt-free, and mafia-free corporation’ before the voting. 

The ruling BJP and the Aam Aadmi Party have each fielded 250 candidates. The Congress has 247 candidates, while the Bahujan Samaj Party has 132. There are also 384 independents competing. There are a total of 1,349 contestants in the running.

The DPCC chief had been vocal on the wrongs of the AAP government in the state and were among the predominant politicians who had raised the liquor politics and how they had transformed the city into a liquor capital. In November last year, Chaudhary had exposed the AAP and alleged that it had even flouted the masterplan of the city to accommodate liquor mafias to open their shops and ‘thekas’ within the 100 meter radius of religious and educational institutions.

In Delhi, 68 model polling stations and 68 pink polling stations encompassing all eleven assembly segments have been put up. The counting will take place on December 7.
