BJP files complaint against Kejriwal with Election Commission

By on March 18, 2014
Bangalore: Accusing Aam Aadmi Party leader Arvind Kejriwal of levelling “defamatory” allegations against Narendra Modi and its other leaders, BJP today filed a complaint against him with electoral authorities, alleging it violated the Model Code of Conduct.
“We have filed the complaint with the Karnataka Chief Electoral Officer against Kejriwal for making defamatory and false statements and hurling charges on personal character, constituting violation of the model code of conduct,” BJP leader Suresh Kumar told reporters after filing the complaint.

He said Kejriwal has violated laws under Section 505 (2) and 171 G of Indian Penal Code and under 123(4) of Representation of People Act. “Hence, we request you (EC) to take stringent action against Kejriwal,” he said. Kumar said Kejriwal had made accusations without any basis and material on record against BJP, knowing well they are false. “Kejriwal is doing this to affect the chances of BJP in the Lok Sabha elections,” he said.
During his speech at Freedom Park in Bangalore on Sunday, Suresh Kumar said Kejriwal used “defamatory, derogatory, bad and intemperate language” against Modi, the prime ministerial candidate of BJP, who is known for his provenance and integrity in governance and administration.
He said Kejriwal has least respect for the law of the country when he stated that even if a case of defamation is booked against him, he will not care. “Kejriwal has made false allegations like in Gujarat, for instance, to get a driving license you have to pay Rs 5,000, further to get a DySP transferred you have to pay Rs 2.75 crore and also that if he (Modi) becomes the prime minister, he will fix a price for everything,” Kumar said.
He alleged Kejriwal is a campaigner who promotes and proclaims falsities in public places. “Without any material or base, he has vaguely abused former chief minister DV Sadananda Gowda and several other leaders of BJP that they have indulged in corruption,” he said.

    It shows how BJP is scared of AK. They are just filing cases after cases to stop him instead of facing him.

    Arvind ( MP ) or Arvind ( Ex-MLA ) ?

    Not surprisingly , many people would like it to be ,
    Arvind ( Ex-MLA )

    One does not need to be a NOSTRADAMUS , to be able to predict that – should Arvind decide to fight against Narendra Modi from Varanasi
    Whereas , I can understand , leaders of both Congress and BJP , secretly hoping that Arvind does contest from Varanasi , I just fail to understand why AAP leaders too , want him to carry out a political suicide !

    Do they ( AAP leaders ) , believe that ,
    > a Arvind on the footpath OUTSIDE parliament building is worth much
    more ,
    > a Arvind leading the opposition INSIDE the Lok Sabha ?

    If not , why do they advise him to fight Narendra Modi ?
    To make a martyr out of Arvind ?
    Don’t AAP leaders realize that politics is purely a game of ” Possible ” ?
    And one does not need to have mastered , NASH EQUILIBRIUM to see that , a fight between NaMo and Arvind , is a fight between UNEQUALS !

    Mavericks don’t win elections . Money does !
    Election is NOT about heroics / about bravado / about being foolhardy !
    It is only about getting into the Lok Sabha
    And , in Arvind’s case , it is about getting in there with fair and honest means !

    ARVIND ,

    What are you trying to prove by fighting Modi ?
    That you are not lusting for power ?
    You don’t have to . We know that

    Forget about that referendum of people of Varanasi
    Listen to what 814 million voters want
    They want to see you lead the opposition in Lok Sabha

    Ask of yourself : What is more important ?
    Fighting Modi for 5 weeks on the streets of Varanasi – and losing ?
    Fighting Modi inside Lok Sabha for 5 years – and winning ?

    So , fight from where people – not money , will vote for you
