New Delhi, Feb 5: With just one day left for the election campaign of Delhi assembly polls, the battle is getting intense and murkier. The leaders of the political parties are now indulging in allegations and counter-allegations.
A day after BJP attacked the Aam Aadmi Party over illegal funding, AAP leader Ashutosh on Thursday said that the BJP is distributing liquor and money to woo voters.
"We have information that BJP is distributing money, liquor and non-vegetarian food to the public and they are also seizing voter identity cards of poor," AAP leader Ashutosh alleged.
"We also have information that they are trying to traumatise and threaten these voters that if they vote for AAP, they will have to bear the consequences later," he told reporters.
He also said, "Last night AAP volunteers were attacked by BJP volunteers and women volunteers were manhandled. This is a serious matter and Election Commission will be informed."

Responding to the allegations, BJP spokesperson GVL Narsimha said, "They (AAP) have even sold their party tickets in these elections and their candidates were found collecting and storing liquor for distribution in elections."
"They make all kinds of allegations against every party and institution including the Election Commission but they think they are not required to answer any questions.
Earlier on Wednesday night, a minor clash broke out allegedly between BJP workers and Aam Aadmi Party in South Delhi's Sangam Vihar area.
No case has, however, been registered so far.
