Delhi Elections: EC sends notice to Arvind Kejriwal over violation of model code of conduct

Delhi is set to go to polls on Saturday, February 8, 2020, the results of which are expected to come out 3 days later on February 11.

Citing violation of Model Code of Conduct, the Election Commission has today sent a notice to the Aam Aadmi Party chief and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal. The notice was sent just a few hours before Delhi is all set to go to the assembly polls.


Kejriwal had earlier uploaded a video on his Twitter page in which he was seen taking a swipe at his ideological rivals-Congress and BJP. In a bid to take a dig at Union Home Minister Amit Shah, Kejriwal even claimed that he had challenged Shah for an open debate but the Home Minister ran away. Kejriwal then misquoted Bhagavad Gita stating, “It is written in Gita that a true Hindu never leaves the battlefield”.


Furthermore, the AAP supremo also accused Congress and BJP of perpetuating religion and caste-based politics in the national capital while extolling AAP’s politics which he claimed is based on its work.

Taking cognisance of Kejriwal’s flagrant disregard of Model Code of Conduct, the Election Commission sent a notice to the Delhi Chief Minister stating that the video had a potential to disturb the communal harmony of the national capital.

Delhi is set to go to polls on Saturday, February 8, 2020, the results of which are expected to come out 3 days later on February 11.
