Anti-Modi posters in Delhi: Police registers 44 FIRs, arrests four; AAP says 'dictatorship at peak'
New Delhi/IBNS: The posters calling for the ouster of Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the national capital prompted the Delhi Police to register 44 First Information Reports (FIRs) and arrest four people, media reports said.
Posters with some of them seeking the ousters of Modi were pasted on several walls and poles in the national capital.
At least 2,000 such posters were moved by the police who have seized another 2,000 from a van which was intercepted.
Special Commissioner of Police (Law and Order of Northern Zone) Dependra Pathak told The Indian Express, "The arrested man disclosed that he was asked by his employer to deliver the posters at AAP’s headquarters, and that he had made a delivery a day earlier as well. We have arrested two other men and further investigations are on."
Slamming the police's action, Delhi's governing Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has put up a tweet which reads, "Dictatorship of Modi government is at its peak.
"What is so objectionable in this poster that Modi ji filed 100 FIRs for putting it? PM Modi, you probably do not know but India is a democratic country. So scared of one poster! Why?"
मोदी सरकार की तानाशाही चरम पर है‼️— AAP (@AamAadmiParty) March 22, 2023
इस Poster में ऐसा क्या आपत्तिजनक है जो इसे लगाने पर मोदी जी ने 100 F.I.R. कर दी?
PM Modi, आपको शायद पता नहीं पर भारत एक लोकतांत्रिक देश है।
