BJP should publicly apologise for Kejriwal ad, else we will approach Election Commission, says AAP

New Delhi(ANI): The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Monday demanded a public apology from the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for publishing a derogatory advertisement of the former’s chief ministerial candidate Arvind Kejriwal, adding that they would file a complaint to the Election Commission over the same.

“I was aghast to see the advertisement. They have been using abusive language for Arvind Kejriwal. They have abused the community from which he belongs. Either they should withdraw the advertisement or apologize publicly. We will go to the Election Commission for the same,” said AAP spokesperson Ashutosh.

Earlier on Saturday, the BJP had put up a newspaper advertisement targeting the Aam Aadmi Party and its chief. The ad portrays a caricature of Kejriwal, who swears on his children that he would never join hands with the Congress.

This act by the BJP was criticized by various political parties. However, the party has gone silent on the matter.

BJP has hit out at Aam Aadmi Party with its new advertisement in today’s daily. BJP has launched direct attack on Kejriwal through its advertisement. There is a cartoon of Arvind Kejriwal placing his hands on the heads of his two ‘kids’ and it is printed ‘Satta ke liye bachchon ki jhoothi kasme tak main khaunga, aur raat din imaandaari ka danka bhi bajaunga’.

The advertisement also has a photo in the background containing a sketch of a person looking like Anna Hazare on which a garland is hung.

Anna Hazare’s cartoon has been shown with a garland, prompted AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal to cheekily ask whether the saffron party had “killed” the veteran anti-corruption crusader.

In a series of tweets today, AAP chief Kejriwal said, Nathuram Godse killed Gandhiji on this day in 1948. BJP has killed Anna in its ad today. Shudn’t BJP apologise?

In the advertisement, BJP has also shown Kejriwal’s cartoon in which he is promising not to take support from Congress, but he has been shown to have done “marriage” with Congress.
