Kejriwal alleges conspiracy to defame AAP ahead of Delhi polls

January 28, 2015 16:10 IST

Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday accused a "senior leader" of a rival party of conspiring to plant fake stories against some Aam Aadmi Party candidates in the media and said they would lodge a complaint with the Election Commission.

Terming it as a "desperate attempt" by the opposition, the AAP chief claimed that such attempts were made in the past as well. "Last yr, farzi (fake) stings were shown against 6 of our candidates a few days before elections to defame us (sic)," Kejriwal said in a series of tweets.

He expressed apprehension that "similar conspiracies" are being planned to malign the party before the upcoming elections. "A senior leader, famous 4 planting stories, has hatched conspiracy against some AAP candidates n they will plant farzi stories in media (sic)," he said.

Kejriwal also said the party was lodging a complaint with the Election Commission over the issue.

"But Delhiites won't believe it. They know this is last desperate attempt of our opponents who r losing badly...We are making a complaint to EC also," he tweeted.

Nearly a year after the city was brought under President's rule, Delhi is going to polls on February 7. Results will be out on February 10.
