Lucknow: An inquiry by Uttar Pradesh BJP
unit revealed bogus enrolments here after the scrutiny of
forms filled in the names of prominent leaders aroused
suspicion of the functionaries.

It was detected that names of prominent political
leaders like Sonia, Mayawati, Manmohan and Rahul figured in
the list as party members from from Ghaziuddin Haider canal
locality of the state capital, party sources said.

Even Hema Malini and Varun were mentioned in the list
as members from Lucknow after the recently concluded
membership campaign.

Taking serious note of the issue, an internal inquiry
was ordered. They said that when enrolments forms were
minutely screened it was found that important details like
address and contact number were not mentioned in these forms.
The inquiry found that these forms were filled in
bogus names.

"The party issues booklets containing 25 forms each,
which are used to make new members," BJP state membership
campaign in-charge Mahendra Nath Singh told PTI.
He said that during inquiry it was found that a small
time worker, who had managed to get a booklet, made those fake
memberships.

"We have cancelled all members enrolled by that
worker," he said.
