With just three days left before Karnataka goes to poll, the BJP and the ruling Congress on Wednesday engaged in a war of words after almost 10,000 "fake" voter ID cards were seized from a flat in Rajrajeshwari Assembly seat.

The police seized thousands of fake cards with hologram, lamination machines and computers after BJP workers informed about the racket, Javadekar said.

However, Manjula's son, Sridhar Nanjamari, on Wednesday rebuffed such allegations and told reporters he was the only son of Manjula Nanjamuri.

"The flat ( Flat no 115 SLV Parkview Apt, Jalahalli) belongs to one Ms Manjula Nanjamuri and was rented out to one Sri Rakesh".

Recently the Election Commission had found a former employee of the BBMP involved in producing fake ID Cards and arrested some persons in connection with it.

Speaking to the media on Wednesday, Manjula said, "I was a BJP corporator between 1997 and 2007". "This is the philosophy of the Congress....if voters do not vote for you, create fake voters", he said while claiming that a "fake voter ID printing factory" was being run in Manjula's flat.

State's Chief Electoral Officer (CEO) Sanjiv Kumar on late Tuesday night said 9,746 voter cards have been seized from a flat in the constituency. "Rakesh is my mother's nephew's son and he is not connected to the Park View apartment in anyway as it is being portrayed in the media", Sridhar said. "Congress is trying to lie loudly and pin it on BJP", Mr Javadekar said.

"The BJP worker Rakesh exposed this racket. All the proofs of call records and others must be forensically examined by the police and cyber crime department", Javadekar said. He also said that the color in the counterfoil appeared unusual. "Fearing a crushing defeat, Congress is indulging in all kinds of malpractices", he said.

The spokesman of the Congress party Randeep Singh Surjewala alleged that the flat where the voter IDs were found belonged to a BJP leader.

Congress state minority cell chief Ahmed Syed however is counting on the many benefits and schemes that the community has received from the existing government and is confident of the support it might receive during the election.

"Rakesh, former BJP corporator Manjula's son, who was renting the house says he raided the place on a gut feeling". The Congress hit back accusing the BJP of enacting drama of raiding an apartment owned by a local BJP leader and planting "fake evidence".
