AAP meets Delhi CEO over BJP’s objectionable hoardings

New Delhi, Apr 4 (UNI) Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leaders on Thursday met Delhi Chief Electoral Officer P Krishnamurthy over objectionable hoardings and posters placed by Bharatiya Janata Party across the national capital.

“The BJP has placed many objectionable hoardings across Delhi, at some places they have even used the photo of Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal,” Delhi Minister Atishi Marlena Singh alleged.

“We (AAP) and our legal team filed a complaint against this six days back, but surprisingly no action has been taken yet. It’s worrying as it raises questions over the level playing field for Lok Sabha elections,” Atishi said.

She further asserted, “It has happened for the first time in the history of the country that sitting Chief Minister (Kejriwal) and convener of the national party was arrested after the announcement of the Lok Sabha polls, bank accounts of a major opposition party were frozen, the Income Tax department is sending notices to political parties amid campaigning, the AAP office was sealed for four days.”

The whole country is worried whether all the parties are getting a level playing field in the Lok Sabha elections because if no action can be taken on these hoardings and posters in these six days, then what will happen to the bigger issues, Atishi noted?

She further said that the party will seek an appointment from the Election Commission if no action is taken by the Delhi chief electoral officer’s office.

Raising concerns that the poll panel is not giving appointments to the opposition parties, Atishi said, “This Lok Sabha elections are becoming historic for all the sad reasons.”
