The BJP Saturday moved the Election Commission seeking a ban on Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's campaigning for allegedly instigating fear among people over the national register for citizens.
The BJP said, Kejriwal at a press conference had reportedly claimed that the BJP considers Muslims, Christians, Jains, Parsis and other minorities in India as "infiltrators".
"...the manifesto of BJP only talks about illegal infiltrators and no one else," the memorandum submitted to the poll panel said.
It said Kejriwal's intention was to create panic and mutual hatred among communities by misleading people.
The BJP urged the Commission to censure Kejriwal and bar him from campaigning and media interaction during the Lok Sabha polls.
