Congress indulging in mudslinging, BJP to file a police complaint: Goel
n to stop derogatory campaign against Shri Narendra Modi despite formal complaints. The party has also called upon all its cadres to counter the canards spread against it by Congress party and expose the misleading claims of Aam Admi Party.
In a statement issued today, the Delhi BJP President Shri Vijay Goel said, “On Nov. 30, derogatory pamphlets were distributed prior to Shri Narendra Modi’s rally.
In the past also this has been done and we had lodged formal complaint with the Election Commission but it still continues unabated. I do not see any visible action on ground in this regard and this has caused us deep anguish.”
“We are going to lodge a police complaint regarding this now and seek investigation. In gross violation of the poll guidelines, the print lines are missing on these pamphlets. Such attempts are condemnable and show desperation of our rivals who have resorted to such undemocratic practices.”
Shri Goel said, “Congress is not able to get support from any quarter. Rallies by Rahul Gandhi and Sonia Gandhi were a big flop with only handful of people being there. People are leaving Chief Minister’s public meetings in between and all surveys are pointing that Congress is trailing very badly. On the other hand Sh. Modi’s rallies are a huge success. All top leaders of BJP are drawing huge crowds. A desperate Congress is thus running mudslinging campaign now.”
Shri Goel also pointed out that the Aam Aadmi Party, which is actually “B” team of Congress, is making misleading claims about its support base. “Our party cadres have been directed that in the last leg of the campaign the half-truths of AAP must be exposed. AAp is the biggest violator of poll guidelines and it has made untenable and vague promises in its manifesto. Several of its leaders have been caught on camera agreeing to resort to unfair means and misuse their political clout.”
Shri Goel said, “The BJP candidates are focusing on positive agenda. While the party has successfully exposed the corruption and mismanagement of Congress, we have also presented a positive agenda for inclusive growth with a long term vision and plan. People of Delhi have appreciated our positive approach and hence the BJP is heading towards a historic victory in Delhi assembly polls.”
