2 Voter ID cards: Big relief for Bedi

2 Voter ID cards: Big relief for Bedi - Sakshi Post

New Delhi: In a major relief to Delhi's BJP Chief Ministerial candidate Kiran Bedi, the Election Commission on Thursday gave a clean chit to her on  holding dual voter identity cards with separate addresses.

Earlier on Wednesday, 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.

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.
