Poster war

The BJP-AAP ‘poster war’ continues in Delhi as the saffron party-sponsored posters calling for the removal of Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal were seen plastered in parts of the national capital on Thursday, days after similar posters were posted by “anonymous” persons targeting Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

The anti-Kejriwal posters with the slogan ‘Arvind Kejriwal ko hatao, Dilli Bachao (Remove Arvind Kejriwal, Save Delhi’ with a header calling the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief Corrupt, Dishonest and Dictator—were reported seen pasted in Delhi this morning, two days after the Delhi Police’s crackdown on anti-Modi posters which read ‘Modi hatao, desh bachao (remove Modi, save the country.’

The anti-Kejriwal posters were allegedly put up by BJP leader Manjinder Singh Sirsa.

The posters calling for the removal of PM Modi to “save the country” were removed during a large-scale crackdown by the Police on Tuesday, which also led to the arrest of six accused, including two printing press owners.

The arrested printing press owners allegedly told the police that they had received an order to print 50,000 “Modi hatao, desh bachao” posters.

Police said the arrests were made for defacing public property and under the law, the posters were required to carry the name of the printing press. They said that only 36 cases out of 138 filed were for the anti-Modi posters.

According to the Delhi Police, they reportedly seized around 2,000 posters that were on their way to being delivered in a van to the AAP office.

However, Delhi CM Kejriwal trashed the police version of the arrests and claimed that the Prime Minister is “scared” and “insecure.”

Later, in a tweet, the Kejriwal-led AAP termed the police action as the “peak of Modi government’s dictatorship” as asked what was objectionable in the posters. AAP has also announced a protest at Delhi’s Jantar Mantar today to demand the removal of PM Modi.

The BJP accused the AAP of violating the law by putting up such posters, notably, however, the former never acknowledged the act.
