Fact check: No, AIMIM   has not written to Centre seeking inclusion of Rohingyas in voter list

Hyderabad: A few days ago, BJP Telangana tweeted in Telugu claiming that "అక్రమ చొరబాటుదారులకు @trspartyonline @aimim_national కలిసి మద్దతిస్తున్నాయి. అక్రమ చొరబాటుదారులు ఓటర్ లిస్టుల్లో కూడా ఉండడం ఆందోళన కలిగిస్తోంది. రోహింగ్యాలను ఓటర్ లిస్టులో చేర్చమని ఎంఐఎం కేంద్రానికి లేఖ కూడా రాసింది. - @smritiirani డిటైల్స్"

"@trspartyonline, @aimim_national are supporting illegal intruders together. It is a matter of concern that illegal intruders are also on the voter list. MIM also wrote a letter to the Central Government asking for the inclusion of Rohingyas on the voter list - @smritiirani"


Fact Check:

The claim that MIM wrote a letter to the Central Government is FALSE.

The AIMIM leaders have rubbished the claim stating that they have never written any kind of letter to anyone. When Newsmeter reached out to AIMIM, a representative of the party said the party has not written to the Central Government or the Election Commission for inclusion Rohingyas in the voter list.

According to a report in Deccan Chronicle, and Times Now AIMIM president Asaduddin Owaisi challenged the BJP to show the names of 100 Rohingya refugees on the voter list after a BJP leader had claimed that 40,000 Rohingya had succeeded in getting enlisted as voters.

Hence, the claim that the MIM Party wrote a letter to Central Government to include Rohingyas in the voter list is FALSE.
