'Dictatorship at peak': AAP after Delhi Police's action over anti-Modi posters

| @indiablooms | 22 Mar 2023, 01:44 pm

New Delhi/IBNS: The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has accused the central government of "dictatorship" after Delhi Police registered 44 First Information Reports (FIRs) and arrested four people over the posters calling for ouster of Prime Minister Narendra Modi being pasted in the national capital.

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?"

Though the AAP runs the Delhi government, police of the union territory is under the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-led central government.

Posters with some of them seeking the ouster 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."
