Poll panel cautions Delhiites against 'misleading calls' over deletion of names from electoral rolls
Delhi Congress Wednesday lodged a complaint with the Chief Electoral Officer (CEO) accusing AAP of putting pressure on parents of children enrolled in government schools to vote for their candidates in the Lok Sabha polls and sought action for violation of model code of conduct.
"The delegation complained to the CEO about the AAP government pressurising parents of students from Delhi government schools to vote for the candidates of AAP in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections," said a Delhi Congress statement.
No reaction was available immediately from the AAP.
The Congress leaders brought to the CEO's notice large number of posters and hoardings of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal at petrol pumps, Metro rail pillars, Mohalla Clinics, DTC buses, and other such places owned by agencies of the Central government and Delhi government.
"They are pressurising the parents to vote for the Aam Aadmi Party candidates in the coming Lok Sabha elections," he said.
