New Delhi: The Election Commission on Thursday gave clean chit to BJP's chief ministerial candidate Kiran Bedi with regard to her holding two voter identity cards having separate addresses.
The EC today said Bedi had applied for vote transfer and it was a clerical error on the Commission's part that she had two voter identity cards with separate addresses. The EC further said that information on its website had not been updated.
Earlier, the EC had said that it was examining how Bedi was issued two documents from different localities.
As per the Election Commission's record, Bedi was issued separate voter identity cards with addresses in Uday Park and Talkatora Lane.
When asked about the issue, Bedi had chosen not to comment.
The card with the Uday Park address carries the voter ID number TZD1656909 whereas the other one with the address 2 Kothi, Talkatora Lane has the number SJE0047969.
Bedi had mentioned Uday Park in her nomination papers as her residential address.
