Chandigarh, January 13

The AAP has accused the ruling BJP at the Centre of trying to facilitate the registration of a new “morcha” so as to thwart the political advances made by the party.

AAP’s Punjab affairs incharge Raghav Chadha alleged the Election Commission, under pressure from the BJP, was trying to change the rules for registration of a party by reducing the time required for inviting objections from 30 days to seven.

“This is being done after the model code of conduct came into force. It is clearly meant to facilitate a “morcha” (in an apparent reference to farmers’ Sanyukt Samaj Morcha led by Balbir Singh Rajewal) or a group, whose presence in the political arena during the elections will clearly harm the AAP,” he said, asking the group to clarify to the public its relations with the BJP and Home Minister Amit Shah. “The BJP will go to any extreme to stop the AAP. — TNS
