Written By Digital Desk | Mumbai | Updated On:

In a memorandum submitted to the Election Commission on Wednesday, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) urged the poll-body to ban Union Home Minister Amit Shah for 48 hours from campaigning in the Delhi assembly elections. AAP alleged that Amit Shah, along with the other BJP leaders and Members of parliament violated the model code of conduct by posting false, fabricated and concocted videos in order to malign the image of Aam Aadmi Party.

AAP demanded that the fabricated videos be removed from twitter and an FIR to be registered against all the BJP leaders and MP's by the Delhi police.

"This is in reference to violation of Model Code of Conduct by Amit Shah and other BJP leaders/MPs by posting false, fabricated and concocted videos in order to malign the image of Aam Aadmi Party, Delhi Govt schools, their teachers and students and play fraud against people of Delhi," the memorandum from the AAP reads.

It further states, "In the last five years, the AAP-led Government in Delhi has made revolutionary changes in the education system of Delhi which has been recognised worldwide."

"It is submitted, Amit Shah, his MPs of Delhi and other leaders in their public utterances made false claims that 'nothing has been done by the Aam Aadmi Party government for the betterment of government schools in Delhi'. In response to this, Arvind Kejriwal invited Shah to visit Delhi govt schools with him. But he, along with his MPs in a well-planned manner, with ulterior motive spread false propaganda against Kejriwal, Manish Sisodia and AAP, manufactured and published false and fabricated videos on Twitter and other media platforms," the memorandum said.

Slamming BJP leaders, the memorandum further said, "BJP sitting MPs Gautam Gambhir, Parvesh Verma, Hans Raj Hans on the direction of Amit Shah made false and fabricated videos to put the wrong picture of Delhi government schools before the people of Delhi."
