The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) will display posters against prime minister Narendra Modi in 11 languages across the country on March 30 (Thursday), news agency PTI reported quoting the party’s state convener Gopal Rai.
“On March 30, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) will distribute posters across the country. The party’s state units have been asked to distribute posters in their respective states. The posters were printed in 11 different languages:” Rai, the Delhi AAP’s chief and environment minister was quoted as saying by PTI.
Last week, posters reading “Modi Hatao, Desh Bachao” (remove Modi, save India) appeared on walls and power poles throughout the national capital, prompting police to arrest six people and file 49 FIRs.
The BJP retaliated by putting posters with the words “Kejriwal Hatao, Delhi Bachao” (remove Kejriwal, save Delhi) across the national capital.
On Tuesday, Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal claimed that the country is going through a difficult period as he launched a scathing attack on the BJP-led central government.
“There is rampant loot by the Centre. They have looted more in seven years than what Congress had looted in 75 years. The country is passing through difficult times. We are deeply worried about the situation,” Kejriwal was quoted as saying by PTI.
The chief minister raised the Adani issue in the Delhi Assembly, ratcheting up his criticism of PM Modi.

The Congress claimed on Wednesday that the laws were different for the ruling party and the opposition under the Narendra Modi government, citing the example of Amreli BJP MP Naranbhai Bhikhabhai Kachhadia, who was not disqualified despite being convicted in a criminal case and sentenced to three years in prison.
In a press conference, Congress leader and Rajya Sabha MP Shaktisinh Gohil stated that Kachhadia was convicted by a Gujarat court for assaulting a Dalit doctor in 2016 and that his conviction was upheld by the High Court.
The BJP MP was not disqualified for weeks and finally received relief from the Supreme Court, but only after paying a fine, according to the politician.

Chavan also said that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) was targeting Congress leader Rahul Gandhi because the saffron party was afraid of him.
