A day after former chief minister captain Amarinder Singh during his visit to Patiala alleged that Patiala deputy commissioner GK Singh, who is also district election officer, is favouring SAD-BJP candidate Deepinder Dhillion, Aam Aadmi party (AAP) candidate Dr Dharamvir Gandhi has decided to file a complaint against him due to his alleged partisan attitude.


When some media reports allegedly exposed SAD-BJP members carrying liquor cartons during deputy chief minister Sukhbir Singh Badal's rally at Ghanaur in Patiala district, GK Singh gave them a clean chit.

"Despite having photographs as evidence which exposed the distribution of liquor at the rally, the district authorities have given a clean chit to SAD workere and did not find any code violation. We will file a complaint against Patiala DC GK Singh with the state election commissioner", Dr Gandhi said.

"If SAD-BJP leaders didn't provide liquor, then who brought liquor cartons at the rally venue? The question remains still unanswered", he said.

However, Dr Gandhi further alleged that SAD-BJP leaders had been using government machinery by deploying CID police personnel at their (AAP) campaigning venues to get feedback pertaining to their strategies and responses.

"CID officials at the instance of the district officials follow us on our campaign trail and intimidate our supporters, volunteers and well wishers which is completely undemocratic and misuse of government machinery", he said.

He added that they would also write to the state election commission to check this attitude of the government", he said. 

Meanwhile, AAP Patiala's unit has condemned Modi's attack on AAP national convener Arvind Kejriwal.

"Modi had spread hatred within the BJP, in Gujarat and now he has taken this hate campaign beyond borders. We are agents of peace, progress, communal harmony and his baseless and offending statements in which he accused of Kejriwal as Pakistan agent could not be tolerated", he said.
