NEW DELHI: Aam Aadmi Party has among its latest online recruits some very big names like Rahul Gandhi, Sonia Gandhi, Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi and Angelina Jolie. But the party is not celebrating. They say these are fake people out to tarnish the reputation of the party.

However, said AAP sources, it’s an unavoidable hazard of the internet. AAP recently claimed that more than 50 lakh people have joined it under its new membership drive ‘mein bhi aam aadmi’ that was launched on January 10 and the party is targetting 1 crore members by January 26.

“After people fill up the online form, there is a declaration at the end which they are supposed to sign digitally. This means that the onus of the information being correct lies on them. Maybe they don’t realize that under IT laws this is a crime. But yes, we have received membership forms from one Rahul Gandhi, Narendra Modi and Jawaharlal Nehru,” said Ankit Lal, IT and social media administrator, AAP.

Party sources say that a small percentage of the 50 lakh members would definitely be frauds. “The data that we are collecting, like address and phone numbers, will be sent to the state and district level offices. Here, our volunteers will contact the members to involve them in party work. So here, the fraud entries will get sifted automatically. This is the point of final filtration. However, most of our members in this drive were made through door-to-door networks and during special camps. Only about 6.5 lakh people have become members online,” said a source. They added that some of these members could genuinely be named Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi.

Meanwhile, till the sifting takes place, Barack Obama, Atal Bihari Vajpayee and the Gandhi family will continue to remain AAP members.
