today wrote to the State Commissioner seeking removal of all government's publicity materials like hoardings, posters and banners from all public properties across the national capital.

In his letter to the State Commissioner S K Srivastava, General Secretary Kuljeet Singh Chahal said as the the has been enforced in Delhi after the announcement of MCD polls, it is important that all publicity material be removed.

"Delhi has requested the State Commissioner to direct the Chief Secretary and the Police Commissioner of Delhi to survey Delhi roads and ensure removal of all illegal publicity material put up by political parties and bodies," a statement issued by the party said.

The BJP leader also drew the attention of the State Election Commissioner towards Government's promotional advertisements in the media, especially, towards the hoardings proclaiming that Kejriwal has increased minimum wages in Delhi.

Chahal said that no ordinance has been issued as the Bill has only been passed in Delhi Assembly and thus the publicity was "misleading" and should be removed.

Chahal also sought removal of hoardings having pictures of the Chief Minister from the walls of schools and hospitals saying that majority of the polling centers are being set up in schools.
