BJP worker Rakesh, from whose "rented" apartment 9,746 voter IDs were found arrived at the press conference on Wednesday in Bengaluru, leading to a scuffle between media personnel and BJP leaders as reporters try to talk to Rakesh regarding voter ID scandal.

"The tenants are Rekha and Rangaraju, this is fake news that Rakesh is the tenant", Nanjamari told ANI, and added that she has not been in touch with Rakesh and his family.

Speaking to the media on Wednesday, Manjula said, "I was a BJP corporator between 1997 and 2007".

Union minister Prakash Javadekar said the BJP has demanded an immediate countermand of Rajarajeshwari elections, a thorough investigation by cybersecurity department's personnel and the immediate arrest of Manjula Nanjamuri, from whose flat the cards were seized.

The state's chief election officer confirmed the recovery of the voter ID cards from a flat in Rajarajeshwari Nagar constituency but the commission is waiting for a formal report on the issue. "If voters do not vote for you, create fake voters", Javadekar said.

A massive controversy has rocked Karnataka after almost 10,000 "fake" voter ID cards were seized from a flat in Rajrajeshwari Assembly seat, prompting the BJP to demand counter-manding of the election claiming Congress was behind the racket, a charge dismissed by the latter as a "lie".

Meanwhile, Mr Yadav said that his party had filed a petition with Chief Electoral Officer against JD (S) candidate in Melukote alleging large scale distribution of money and liquor to voters and trying to influence them using emotional intimidation using religious symbols. She told a TV channel in Kannada, which was translated into English, that since she owned the land on which the apartment building stood, she had entered into a joint venture with a builder.

Manjula said she had rented or leased out the flats.

"Congress is losing public support and they are trying hard to rig the upcoming elections in Karnataka by undemocratic ways".

He claimed Manjula was associated with the BJP and her "son" Rakesh had contested the municipal corporation election on a BJP ticket.
