The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has complained to the police commissioner about the posters put up by the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) across the city.

The posters, which have the picture of AAP national convener and Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal on them, site a survey to claim that AAP will get 100 seats, Congress will get 10 and Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) will manage to win from only seven seats in the upcoming assembly elections in the state.

Pasted at almost all major locations in the city, these posters reading “Jharu Walian di Aayegi Sarkar” have become the talk of the town, following which the SAD’s alliance partner BJP has sent a complaint to police commissioner Amar Singh Chahal.

The complaint has been sent by BJP national secretary Tarun Chugh. He has alleged that it is illegal to put up these posters, which do not carry the name of the printer or the publisher.

Chugh said AAP supporters were misleading the people and reality will become clear during the 2017 polls, while claiming that the SAD-BJP combine will again form the government.
