New Delhi: In front of a polling station in North Delhi, Majnu Ka Tilla, a dispute arose between Congress workers and the Aam Aadmi party today after Congresswoman Alka Lamba tried to beat an AAP worker.
In a mobile video, a man who allegedly belongs to the party led by Arvind Kejriwal yells at Ms. Lamba, who suddenly lunges at him with his right hand raised to hit him. The man goes back and Ms. Lamba misses her target.
The man is led away from a police ring within seconds. Congress workers chase and surround the police. Ms. Lamba and some congressional workers are desperately trying to reach the man who is still being protected by the police.
“As soon as I got out of the polling station, I saw the son of an AAP candidate arguing with the police about entering the booth. At that moment, an AAP employee, Harmesh, was using an offensive language against me. I thank the police for that arrest him immediately, “said Ms. Lamba, the ANI news agency reported.
Ms Lamba earlier was a former AAP MLA.
Ms. Lamba, a former MLA of the Aam Aadmi Party or AAP of Chandni Chowk, left the party after inconsistencies with Mr. Kejriwal on party issues that led to separate ways.
She attended the congress last October. Ms. Lamba worked with Congress for 20 years before quitting the party and joining the AAP. She won the Delhi election in 2015 from Chandni Chowk.
On September 19, spokesman Ram Niwas Goel expelled Ms. Lamba from the Delhi assembly for surrender.
Over 1.47 million voters are polling today with the choice of re-electing the AAP or replacing it with the BJP or Congress. The survey marks the end of a bitter clash that resulted in an exceptionally harsh language and attacks by the population.
The results of the new elections in Delhi results announcement happens on Tuesday.
