The EC said it was of the view that the posts on the Delhi BJP Facebook and X handles were prima facie in violation of the Model Code of Conduct, which prohibits parties and candidates from making unverified allegations against others. The EC asked Sachdeva to explain the statements by 8 pm on Thursday.
The Aam Aadmi Party had on November 16 submitted a complaint to the EC about the Delhi BJP’s posts that it said were an “ugly attempt to tarnish the image” of Kejriwal. The content in question included a video caricaturing Kejriwal and making allegations of corruption while depicting a day in the life of the AAP national convenor.
Earlier, the EC had issued a show-cause notice to Kejriwal on November 14 for derogatory posts on Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the AAP handle. The AAP had posted a similar video caricaturing the Prime Minister and alleging that he worked for businessman Gautam Adani. The poll panel is yet to announce any action in that matter.
