New Delhi | Arvind Kejriwal today accused a senior leader of a rival party of conspiring to plant fake stories against some AAP candidates in the media and said they would lodge a complaint with the Election Commission.
Terming it as a desperate attempt by the opposition, the AAP chief claimed that such attempts were made in the past as well. Last year, farzi (fake) stings were shown against 6 of our candidates a few days before elections to defame us (sic), Kejriwal said in a series of tweets.
He expressed apprehension that similar conspiracies are being planned to malign the party before the upcoming elections. A senior leader, famous for planting stories, has hatched conspiracy against some AAP candidates and they will plant farzi stories in media (sic), he said.
Kejriwal also said the party was lodging a complaint with the Election Commission over the issue. But Delhiites won’t believe it. They know this is last desperate attempt of our opponents who are losing badly…We are making a complaint to EC also, he tweeted. Nearly a year after the city was brought under President’s Rule, Delhi is going to polls on February 7. Results will be out on February 10.
